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
NXP recently released the LPC54100 Series MCUs which offer crucially improved ultra-low power performance for “always-on” processing devices often found in wearable technology.  Wearable technology is booming… at least it should considered the many devices available on the market.
