High-Tech is our passion, engineering is how we express ourselves and this blog is our drawing board!

maxim embedded security
Guest blog by Christine Young From Yahoo to LinkedIn, smart speakers to security cameras, DVRs, and even baby monitors—all of these things have been hacked at some point (or points, in some incidents). As smart, connected products become more pervasive in our everyday lives, they also provide more avenues for cybercriminals. In some cases, it’s a matter of end users needing to be more diligent about, say, changing default logins and passwords. In other cases, the device itself simply wasn’t designed with very strong security. The first case is aRead More
Developers of Internet of Things (IoT) and embedded devices today are able to draw on more opportunities than ever before to realize their projects. Technology companies dedicated to the IoT make investments not only in hardware components but also in software development. The British semiconductor and software design company ARM, mainly known for its computer processor designs, makes business with software development tools too. Their ARM mbed IoT Device Platform is made to simplify development of IoT devices and applications. In 2015 ARM released the first (beta) version of theRead More
NXP 4Mbit EEPROM
EEPROM stands for Electrically Easable Programmable Read-Only Memory. Compared to other non-volatile memories, like Flash and MRAM, EEPROMs require much lower erase and program currents, which make them ideal for all those applications where current consumption matters. Features And Benefits The NXH5104 from NXP is the first 4 Mbit (or 500 kByte) EEPROM in the market. It is offered in the compact WLCSP-13 package with a minimal footprint of 2.80 mm x 2.74 mm, and only 1 external capacitor is required in the most flexible power mode. Power-down current consumptionRead More
tsn opc ua
Guest blog from Sebastian Sachse When talking to industrial automation experts, it becomes obvious pretty fast that they have high hopes for OPC UA TSN. The hopes are based on concepts and technologies still under development. But this is about to change. The ability of OPC UA TSN to meet communication requirements from the field level up to the ERP level under real-world conditions has been proven by TSN network specialists. The way is paved for OPC UA TSN to become the enabler for Industrial IoT applications. Intensive field testingRead More
maxim integrated automotive led
Guest blog from Tamer Kira High-brightness (HB) light emitting diodes (LED) are making driving safer, reducing energy consumption and, as a side benefit, giving automotive designers more creative license in headlamp designs. LEDs can save 50-70% of the energy use that traditional lighting technologies consume, reducing carbon emissions in the process. They also last longer, boasting lifetimes of 50,000 hours or more. And, because they turn on and off faster than incandescent lamps, they’re ideal for applications like brake lights. From a design standpoint, though, working with HB LED technologiesRead More
Industry 4.0
Guest blog from René Hummen Since the early days of manual production, manufacturing successfully transitioned through three industrial revolutions, each leading to a significant increase in automation, productivity, and efficiency. Notably, all of these revolutions were coupled with the introduction of new technologies. Mass manufacturing, for example, would not have been possible without the introduction of water and steam power in the 18th century. Electric power and the invention of the assembly line further boosted volume production at the beginning of the 20th century. And approximately 45 years ago, electronicsRead More
automotive iot
Guest blog from Axel Schiller Some suggest that autonomous driving is the ultimate example of the implementation of the Internet of Things. An integral integration of internal and external sensors working together to create an evolutionary change in the way people use transportation. There are two additional layers of complication to designing for vehicles, one the impact of application failure can be significant and two vehicles have an extensive need for sensors, signal processing elements, and image recognition engines. As manufacturers continue to add more advanced sensors, high-resolution displays, on-vehicleRead More
Security is essential for the growing Internet of Things. As you probably know, more and more devices are connecting to the Internet every day. It has even been predicted that by 2021 over 28 billion devices will be connected, with 16  billion of them being directly related to the IoT. The infographic below highlights the growing IoT and why security is so important for the billions of new devices. EBV Elektronik is offering support when it comes to security strategies and efficient implementation of safety features into your designs. Please don’t hesitate to getRead More
Already for the third time in a row it was the time of the year again, when we met in the beautiful Chiemgau to celebrate the “EBV Oscars” award show yesterday. Located south of the “Bavarian See”, the Chiemsee, many of our supplier partners and EBV employees came to Grassau for this extraordinary event. Everybody was curious who would win the EBV Wolpertinger Marketing Award, which was given to honour the best and most successful marketing and communication activities in cooperation with our suppliers. Last year’s event was still echoingRead More
Career at EBV Elektronik
We all know that there’s something magical about every new beginning. No matter if starting a new relationship, moving to a new place, traveling to a new country, the first day in school or when starting a new job – there’s always those special moments that stick in our minds for quite a long period of time. Moments that our new apprentices and students certainly experienced too, when they started their studies at EBV Elektronik yesterday. Three young women and five young men entered the EBV headquarters in Poing nearRead More
