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

There’s only a couple of weeks left until the next Formula 1 season will be kicking off. The real fans can hardly wait any longer to hear the engines roar again. Last week we had the honour to use the holy rooms of the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, Italy for a special workshop. I was not about the latest developments of the new Ferrari race car. But the overall topic was automotive vehicles too – different kinds though. Together with our supplier partner Infineon Technologies, we organize the “TQ onRead 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

horticulture lighting
At the IPM 2017 fair in Essen we learned about research activities to avoid chemical inhibitors in horticulture through an adapted choice of the right spectral colors. In general, we observed on the fair that LED technology has in the market of horticulture a high growth rate of up to 50 % for the last year: This is because it is the most energy efficient lighting technology and leads to much less heating, which is beneficial for the plants and the greenhouse regulation. Plants use light first of all toRead More

Wow, that headline sounds dramatic. Will we really need to battle our own connected kitchen appliances, smartwatches and printers at some point?

Smart home adoption is rather crawling instead of running towards our homes. The main reason: user experience and security issues. However there is a third important factor – the old technology already installed in our homes and well proven but “un-connectable” to the internet. One of the best examples are the heating systems in most European homes. A huge number of houses and apartments use water radiators mounted to the wall and controlled with a simple nob that you turn in order to adjust the temperature. The good news aboutRead More
