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
Recent weeks were characterized by hours and hours of preparation, countless phone calls and emails, numerous brainstorming and voting sessions in order to set up everything for the biggest trade fair EBV is attending this year. Embedded World 2017 opened its doors today in Nuremberg, Germany, and the EBV booth presents itself in its full splendour. During the first day, exhibition visitors usually try to get an overall overview of the trade fair. A bit disoriented the crowd is streaming through the halls. Though, there is no time to lose,Read 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
ebv @ embedded world Blog Cover
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

EBV and Maxim Integrated Join Forces

At the beginning of 2017, our distribution agreement with Maxim Integrated became effective. During the electronica 2016 trade fair in Munich, the partnership was announced. As of January 1st, the US-based company is officially part of the EBV line card. Time to introduce Maxim Integrated in more detail. Founded in 1983, Maxim’s world headquarters is located in San José, California, United States. Globally the company has about 7100 employees and has offices in the Americas, Asia and Europe. Listed on the NASDAQ 100 (MXIM), Maxim gained a revenue of approximatelyRead More
Industry 4.0 OPC UA over TSN
As the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as Industry 4.0 are probably the most stressed topics of the last couple years we will skip the “there will be billions of connected devices…” part for this article. Smart factories and sophisticated automation require a complex combination of strategy, technology and flexibility addressing needs from the fieldbus level up to the enterprise level. The complexity and concerns regarding costs, future support, flexibility and maintenance prevent many companies from starting to implement new standards and technologies. However, with the marriage of theRead More
Industry40-tsn
If you analyse keywords like “Internet of Things” or “Industry 4.0” in Google Trends, you get quite a good impression on how the importance for these subjects changed over the last couple of years. Experts agree unanimously that connected devices will increasingly impact people’s lives in the future. It’s not without reason that one is speaking of the fourth industrial revolution. Technology companies, politicians or visionaries spent a lot of time to discuss these topics and to drive the development forward. Certain prerequisites are required to be fulfilled, such asRead More

Industry 4.0 Without Cloud Computing

Worldwide economy is at the threshold to the fourth industrial revolution. Driven by the Internet, real and virtual world are merging to create the Internet of Things (IoT). Topics like Industry 4.0 are omnipresent when you talk to experts in that area. Focus of attention then are networking opportunities of sensors and actuators by means of field bus systems or the networking of machines via standard protocols. Cloud services almost appear to be taken for granted in this context for data exchange or storage. But is this the only wayRead More
digitisation
The IoT’s impact on the European industry was the topic in three earlier articles. In the first one we have discussed how new demands will alter economic structures. Based on that, we have taken a look at the Industry 4.0 in classic and new production models. Concluding we have tried to answer the question whether and, if so, how well European manufacturers are prepared for the future in terms of the IoT. This article however is meant to take a look at the current state of the digitisation, paying specialRead More
