We are back! Season 2 of The Critical Lowdown kicked off again last week, and we have an exciting episode to get us started again!
Last season we predicted that 2023 would be the year of IoT Security, and the first few months indeed show that to be the case. In episode 1, we talk to EPS Global Field Applications Engineer Malcolm Kitchen, fresh from his trip to Embedded World 2023, and take a look at the year ahead for the semiconductor and security industry.
EPS Global has launched a Secure Programming service to address international cybersecurity legislation for internet-connected devices.
EPS Global offers secure provisioning and encryption solutions through its 22 programming facilities, working with IAR Systems to provide an end-to-end solution for implementing security as a foundational capability and establishing a Supply Chain of Trust.
At the APEX Expo in San Diego in January, our CMO Ciara McCarthy was interviewed by Iain Hazlewood from WNIE (What's New in Electronics).
Covering a potted history of EPS Global, from our humble beginnings in Dublin in 1999 to a network of 22 programming centres servicing Tier 1 customers worldwide, dipping into topics like tightening IOT security legislation, how EPS Global can help electronics manufacturers reduce lead times and costs and the global chip shortage along the way.
Our CEO and senior team of FAEs were at Embedded World in Nuremberg this month meeting some of our partners: NXP Semiconductors, STMicroelectronics, Renesas Electronics, IAR, and PixArt Imaging and some customers doing innovative things in driverless cars and facial recognition. Check out the highlights of the show here!
We are delighted to share our latest step towards developing a sustainable future for our business and the planet. As part of our current Environmental and Sustainability Program phase we are focusing on energy management systems and waste management across our 28 global locations. We have installed 142 solar panels at our programming center in Timisoara, generating up to 80MW of energy annually - a significant milestone and covering all our energy needs on site.
