SIDACT GmbH

Simulation Data Analysis and Compression Technologies


About Us

SIDACT is a spin-off of Fraunhofer based in Germany founded in August 2012. SIDACT markets, supports and further develops FEMZIP and DIFFCRASH since January 1st, 2013. FEMZIP and DIFFCRASH were developed by members of the Numerical Software department of the Fraunhofer Institute SCAI since 2002. This work was partly funded by the German Ministry for Research and Technology (BMBF) and the European Commission as part of the SIMDAT, AUTOBENCH and AUTO-OPT projects. The copyright for the software versions until 2012 is still owned by Fraunhofer. Six patents are exclusively licensed by SIDACT from Fraunhofer for engineering applications protecting the kernel technologies of its products. Six scientists from Fraunhofer joined SIDACT and work for support and further developments of the SIDACT products.

We like to use advanced math in software products or tailored applications to improve the usability of numerical simulations and gaining further insights from vast amount of numerical simulation results.   

Today’s customers of SIDACT are car manufactures from Europe, US, India, China, South Korea and Japan. SIDACT products are supported by local distributors in all of these regions. In its first year 3 additional car manufactures and one manufactures of electronic devices decided to license SIDACT products.

In 2016 Sidact GmbH was awarded with the seal of approval „Innovative through research” by the Stifterverband für Deutsche Wissenschaft.
