Embedded World 2016 – Day 1 Recap

The first day of the embedded world 2016 in Nuremberg/Germany is over for a couple of hours already but we are still full of adrenaline. It was so busy on the EBV booth in Hall 5/278 that time flew by just like nothing. There were so many lively discussions and meetings with the visitors, our manufacturing partners, colleagues and friend that we are already looking forward to hitting the ground of the Nuremberg Exhibition and Conference Center tomorrow. And of course we want to share some of our impressions withRead More
Let’s summarise the Automotive Segment year in one word: impossible! You simply need more than one word to describe everything that has happened. Let’s take a little journey through this year’s milestones and highlights chronologically. The year kicked off early with a big announcement from Altera stating that their SoC field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have been selected for use in Audi’s advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) targeted for mass production. Audi together with TTTech developed the central driver assistance control unit zFAS using the Altera® Cyclone® V SoC FPGA enablingRead More
The European Utility Week 2015 (EUW 2015) in Vienna, Austria delivered big time. While at last year’s event in Amsterdam, Netherlands it seemed like many companies still needed to catch up with the new possibilities created by IoT and smart metering/grid technology this year the participants were striving to innovate together based on the new opportunities. The last couple years we came a long way from the very first wireless smart meters over creating standards for connected renewable energy applications to taking a look at the bigger picture including powerRead More
A crypto system should be secure even if everything about the system, except the key, is public knowledge – Kerckhoff’s law (from the 19th century). There are two basic ways of security systems: symmetric and asymmetric.  Both rely on Kerhoff’s law using secret keys to ensure security. Symmetric systems use the same key on host and client side and offer fast and high throughput as well as efficient security implementation. At the same time symmetric security comes with the trade-off that once a key becomes public the system is not safeRead More
This article by Majeed Ahmad originally appeared on Atmel | Bits & Pieces Large SoCs without an Ethernet interface typically have slow start-up times and high-power requirements — until now.  Atmel, a lead partner for the ARM Cortex-M7 processor launch in October 2014, has unveiledthree new M7-based microcontrollers with a unique memory architecture and advanced connectivity features for the connected car market. According to a company spokesman, E70, V71 and V70 chips are the industry’s highest performing Cortex-M microcontrollers with six-stage dual-issue pipeline delivering 1500 CoreMarks at 300MHz. Moreover, V70 and V71 microcontrollers areRead More
Having a non technical background but tinkered with arduino lilypads, gemmas and floras for my wearables projects, I emailed the generic “” expressing my concerns. My email went a little bit like this… “Hello. I am a non techie. Will this be taught at beginner level and while I am interested in learning about Atmel’s technology, will I be able to understand all the technical jargon?” To my surprise, my email was responded very quickly by Aloke Barua, Sales Manager Distribution Ireland and UK who understood my “tech anxiety”. AlokeRead More
Industry 4.0 applications, Internet of Things devices and other connected innovations – whatever I have way cooler ideas! If this is what you are thinking and you are an engineer or maker from Germany, Austria, Switzerland or the Netherlands then this one is for you. We teamed up with the German electronics magazine “Elektronik” and Atmel for the “Industry 4.0/ IoT” Design Contest. The winners will be awarded with one of three iPad Airs! The IoT offers unlimited opportunities and enables the fourth industrial revolution (“Industry 4.0”), new applications in medicalRead More
The number of devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT) is exploding but there is still no agreement on shared standards for the IoT. IoTivity, an open source software framework, is an attempt to establish an IoT standard in order to enable devices, products and services for the Internet of Things. Last July several tech heavyweights, including Cisco, Intel, Samsung and Atmel teamed up and founded the Open Interconnected Consortium (OIC) with the goal to improve interoperability and streamlining connectivity. The group, which has over 50 members, has launched the Preview Release version ofRead More
The Internet of Things (IoT) – interconnecting objects, data, processes and people – long ago ceased to be merely a future vision, and is now reality. It’s estimated that 1 trillion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2025. With billions of smart connected devices waiting to share their data, the engineering community is facing the critical challenge of increasing performance while reducing the energy consumption of their electronic products. An additional challenge is how to secure, store and share the tremendous amount of data collected by all the interconnected things and systems.  CEO VoicesRead More
Before an exciting year 2014 comes to an end let us throw it back to the Electronica a couple weeks ago. EBV Elektronik added its flavour to the show by presenting various Internet of Things (IoT) solutions at the booth together with customers, participating in a number of  key notes and making some noise for the EBVchips program in the press conference on the topic. Our suppliers showed so many great innovations, new products and demos as well, that we were not even able to film and photograph all of the cool stuff they presented. ButRead More
