with our COO!

This month our Chief Operating Officer Mick Mc Carthy has been visiting some of our secure programming centers across the globe from Mexico to Romania. Timisoara was one of our first programming centers, set up 20 years ago and remains one of our busiest locations. A new carrier tape embossing machine is busy at work in our Thermoforming factory in Queretaro, creating custom tape for clients to package their devices on reels. A bowl feeding machine configures high volume components at our Programming & Materials Handling Center in Pinar, Guadalajara. We're constantly adding to and improving our equipment to meet demand.

The Building Blocks for IOT Security - Part 1

Expert Perspectives on Balancing Consumer and Corporate Risk... The exponential growth of the Internet of Things has presented opportunities to malign actors to exploit potential weaknesses for criminal gains. The consequences of not securing connected devices are getting ever more significant as mandated by recent legislation.

To navigate the complex IOT Security ecosystem, we have assembled a panel of the industry's foremost experts to discuss the legislation, threats, technology, distribution, and solutions.

The Building Blocks for IOT Security - Part 2

In Part 2, our panel of experts emphasizes the importance of making IoT security more accessible and consumable for engineers and designers, as well as the need for collaboration among industry players to tackle security challenges for connected devices. This episode covers the increasing number of cybersecurity regulations worldwide, the need for a proactive approach, and the key role organizations like EPS Global, NXP, IAR, and Future Electronics are playing in providing practical and accessible security solutions for volume production of connected devices.

Adapting to Market Forces in Manufacturing

How Outsourced Device Programming is Solving Financial, Supply Chain & Staffing Challenges... Now more than ever, there is a trend towards subcontracting IC programming propelled by market forces ranging from a volatile chip supply, a constrained labor market, the rising cost of capital investment and difficulty in raising debt.

With these prevailing mega trends at play why is outsourcing your IC Programming a competitive and sustainable option to ensure your projects are rolled out on time and on budget?

Make It! Race It! Recycle It!

Boat Race

Last week our team from EPS Romania competed in the annual Ecostuff Make It! Race It! Recycle It! boat race on the river Bega in Timisoara alongside customers and neighbours Forvia and ZF.
Their boat, made out of recovered and recyclable materials, was themed Los Queretanos in honor of our awesome team in EPS Mexico!
Well done to our team - the race tested their creativity, environmental prowess and endurance, and received a special prize for their performance.

Solar Panels at EPS Romania Giving Back to the Grid

In Timisoara, our recently installed solar panels are already producing more than double our electricity requirements. In the first week of June, we fed 2.15 MW back into the electricity grid. Since their installation at the end of April we are delighted to say that we have reduced our carbon dioxide production by 10.15t, and 8.55t of standard coal has been saved which is the equivalent of planting 14 trees. We are hoping to build upon this successful initiative at our other locations... and so continues our progress towards a more sustainable future.
