GOEPEL electronics LLC is a subsidiary of GÖPEL electronic GmbH, headquartered in Jena, Germany. GÖPEL electronic GmbH was founded in 1991 as a spin-off of Carl Zeiss Jena and has several sales support offices in Germany, China, Hong Kong, India, UK, and USA. 

GÖPEL was one of the world’s first suppliers of JTAG/Boundary Scan Test Equipment. From the beginning, we have been setting pioneering trends to widely spread the use of JTAG/Boundary Scan standard IEEE 1149.1. Today we are in a market leading position with thousands of installed systems in active use, offering mature software tools in an integrated development environment, high-performance Boundary Scan controllers and accessories, as well as comprehensive product support and value added services for IEEE 1149.x compliant test and in-system programming applications.

Since the mid 1990s GOEPEL has offered automated optical inspection (AOI) systems. These systems have evolved to offer some of the industry's highest throughput at lowest false-call rate. In addition to automated optical inspection and solder paste inspection (SPI) systems, our inspection system portfolio includes specialized through-hole technology (THT) inspection machines as well as high-speed, in-line 3-D automated x-ray inspection (AXI) machines.

Other business units at GOEPEL provide functional test modules and systems, with focus on the aero-space and automotive industry, and industrial vision solutions.

GOEPEL electronic has continuously been ISO9001 certified since 1996 and has been honoured with TOP-JOB and TOP-100 awards for being one of the best medium-sized companies in Germany.
