EBV & Nexperia
Many changes could be observed in the semiconductor market in the recent times. Chip makers buy others in order to broaden their portfolio, to generate synergy effects and to be able to offer better services and more products to their customers.

Nexperia, NXP’s former standard product business, now strikes out in its own. It has been announced on June 14, 2016, that Nexperia would be divested fromRead More

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.

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.

Long gone are the days when commercial vehicles had a rather dusty image despite their good functionality. Rough edges and corners and bulky designs become more and more a thing of the past. And also the poor amenities are being replaced by more and more high-tech features. One can say, that they really arrived in the 21st century, which became obvious during the recent “IAA für Nutzfahrzeuge” in Hannover. About 2000 exhibitors from over 50 different countries this year showcased their developments to the visitors of the leading fair inRead More

Harvesting machines are getting more powerful, safer and more efficient. But alsoRead More
