Calle Lopez Bravo 70


ITCL (Technological Institute of Castilla y León) is an officially recognized technology center, private, non-profit, provider of multi-technology solutions for the resolution of different problems in the industry. ITCL was created by the Official Industrial Engineering Associations of Burgos and Palencia in 1989, aims to contribute to the economic and social development of the region, supporting, promoting and facilitating the use of technology as a tool for competitiveness of the business network from a commitment to integration in the system of science-technology - company-society.

ITCL develops the strategies needed to achieve the correct distribution and exploitation of the results of their R&D activity by facilitating the Technology transfer to companies, especially SMEs. Being an influential technological centre at regional and national levels in the field of production and development of R&D technologies. Its fundamental values are orientation to the customer, innovative character, technological reviews, efficiency and effectiveness, contribution of value to the customer. ITCL has a regular and growing presence in projects with national and international companies, with an intense and effective cooperative relationship with other technology centres, universities and scientific institutions, and an ongoing commitment to the principles of excellence and continuous improvement and, most importantly, the will to continue to contribute to the generation of knowledge to provide a better services to businesses and organizations.

We have knowledge and experience in the implementation of industry 4.0 projects. in different sectors. We provide digital solutions throughout the production cycle, enabling the Smart Factory concept. Our developments allow manufacturers to have a customized hardware platform, offering great flexibility and adaptability to different types of industry.

We have extensive experience in advanced electronic design solutions. Programming of software oriented to the control and management of embedded electronics, destined to the implementation in equipment goods. Our designs are carried out through the integration of microcontrollers and latest generation electronic components, maximizing the functionality to be implemented and the processing capacity.
