IoT Security Coverimage
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

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

It’s a matter of fact that society is facing the trend of people moving into cities. Especially in Asia more and more so-called megacities emerge. In China on its own more than 500 million people moved to its cities during the last 35 years. The Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development (OECD) says that there are already 15 megacities in China. And this trend will continue, also in other areas of the world. In 2050 about two thirds of all people will live in urbanized metropolitan areas. Skyscrapers FullRead More

Smart Agriculture
It’s the time of the year again when days are getting shorter and the sun is not so powerful anymore. High time for a special occupational group. Farmers are in their final throes harvesting their acres before they will be starting all over again tilling their fields for the next year. For sure there is still a massive amount of manual work needed for them, but high-tech has found its way into agriculture for quite some time already. Harvesting machines are getting more powerful, safer and more efficient. But alsoRead More

Saving Battery Power Is The Key

Most people have certainly been in the situation already, when suddenly and absolutely unexpected the electric device stopped working, because the battery power was used up. It can be a pure disaster for kids when their remote-controlled helicopter or drone does not work anymore because the battery has to be charged yet again. So always in the most inappropriate moment the electric screwdriver, razor or digicam goes belly up. Semiconductor companies like Infineon Technologies tackle such problems and offer devices and solutions for power management, consumption and voltage regulation. ARead More
With the PCIM 2016, Europe’s leading exhibition and conference for power electronics and its applications in intelligent motion, renewable energy and energy management kicks off today in Nuremberg, Germany. Over the next three days developments in power semiconductors, passive components, thermal management products, energy storage, sensors and new materials as well as systems will be presented. Usually you would have to wait until the show is over to identify the trend of the year. In 2016 however, one topic will predictably be the most discussed one: Wide Band Gap (WBG)Read More
embedded security
In one of our recent blog articles some weeks ago, we issued IT security for embedded systems. An issue that semiconductor manufacturers are targeting for years already. Security hardware components are deployed in personal computers for many year to secure sensitive data such as security keys, certificates and passwords. The latest press release from Infineon Technologies perfectly fits in this picture. The EBV partner announced that the world’s leading PC manufacturer Lenevo will count on Infineon’s embedded security solutions and will equip the new Lenovo ThinkPad® notebooks with the OPTIGA™Read More

IT Security for Embedded Systems

Various markets discovered the Internet of Things (IoT) for themselves and develop more and more products and devices. There are areas like Smart Grid, Connected Car, Smart Home & Building, personal health & fitness, or Smart Factory and Industry 4.0. Each of the subjects offer plenty to talk about in separate blog articles. But there is one thing that all of them have in common. And that is supposed to be the topic of this article: Security for the Internet of Things. Facing Increasing Security Needs So when we talkRead More
