Embedded World 2017
Embedded World 2017 in Nuremberg is over again. The three days at the exhibition centre in the Franconian metropole flew by so fast. Time to recap our presence at the leading international trade fair for embedded systems. State-of-the-art technology in all facets of embedded technologies was presented by around 900 exhibitors from March 14-16. Future trends such as e-mobility, energy efficiency and the Internet of Things (IoT) were the hot topics discussed by the visitors from around the world. At our 200 square meter booth in hall 3A we hadRead More
Embedded World 2017 EBV booth
In the wink of an eye the second day of embedded world 2017 was over again. The embedded community gathered our booth, that there were literally not breaks to rest. Not surprisingly, because there is so much to see and time is limited. But it was again great fun to talk to the visitors. Yesterday, two of our manufacturing partners, Broadcom and Maxim Integrated, introduced there workstations in little video clip. Today we were able to record the two other platinum sponsors and suppliers, NXP and STMicroelectronics. A specialist ofRead More

The Time Sensitive Networking standards developed by the TSN working group of the IEEE 802.1 form the basis for the convergence of IT Ethernet with field level networks requiring deterministic features. The seamless communication between machines, objects and services is enabling new automation models and the Industrial IoT (“Industry 4.0”). In addition, Time-Sensitive-Networking enables the transmission of time-critical and “common” data over the same Ethernet network. Therefore the new IEEE standards can be used in order to realize systems in which safety applications are connected over the same Ethernet networkRead More

Developing IoT devices without security is like cooking fish&chips without a fryer – the result is hardly going to be perfect. With millions of connections and objects that speak to each other you really want to make sure that your products are immune to hacking, cloning and counterfeiting. Achieving this needs clever strategies that enable you to clearly identify electronic objects. In order to enable companies to gain easy access to personalized security hardware, EBV has joined forces with Infineon and Data I/O to create a new supply chain serviceRead More
The EBVchips Iris makes it so incredibly easy to develop for the IoT. Actually we think it’s so easy that you need nothing more than Iris, a good idea and creativity to build a great product. The ultra-simple design process and the extensive services from DeviceDrive that you can get along with the hardware are just stunningly versatile. What that means for you? Well, get some coffee and start engineering something great – the possibilities of Iris are endless and only limited by your mind! Learn how to get startedRead More

From 14 to 16 March 2017 the exhibition centre in Nuremberg/Germany will again be the place to be for the embedded community. Last year, more than 30.000 visitors came to the leading international trade fair for the embedded sector. Around 900 exhibitors presented state-of-the-art technology. No matter if construction elements, modules or complete systems the trade fair covers all aspects of embedded systems. Again, EBV Elektronik will be present with its own booth. This time we can be found right in the middle of exhibition hall 3A. The 200 squareRead 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

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
Do you love going outside? Is any of the following activities one of your hobbies: hiking, kayaking, cycling, paragliding, surfing, windsurfing, sailing, golf, skiing, snowboarding, kite surfing, drone flying or backpacking? Do you like to be prepared? If you answered these three questions with “Yes” then you will love this: The Skywatch BL – an ultra-compact weather station that fits into the palm of your hand and connects to your smartphone and tablet via Bluetooth. The stunning little device that looks a little like a tiny laser sword (another reasonRead More
If you’re an electronics developer designing IoT or other connected applications you will know two things: Firstly, fast-time-to-market is a key to success. Secondly, security is a complex feature to implement, however it’s of great importance. Another truth you probably are aware of is that a vast amount of devices currently on the market compromise security for more competitive retail price and quicker release. With the rising number of cyber-attacks system designers will need to rethink their security structures and implement advanced security features while meeting strict development deadlines. InRead More
