EBV announces comms devices in full production

Dr Eckhart Voskamp, director of EBV Product Innovations

EBV has announced that its Iris certified Wi-Fi module is now in full production. The device, which enables automatic connection to the cloud and mobile apps without network programming, supports over the air upgrades of module and client firmware and is said by the supplier to be suitable for use as internet enabler for sensors.

Also in full production is Janus, a 6LowPAN based mesh networking device. Targeted at home automation, building automation, smart lighting and general IoT applications, the 15 x 14mm part features an STM32F0 MCU and the SPIRIT1 low power sub GHz transceiver. With IPv6 compliancy, it supports star and mesh topologies and network auto configuration by neighbour discovery.

According to the company, it is now working on Heracles; an M2M cellular module with a one time prepaid data package. Dr Eckhart Voskamp, pictured, director of Product Innovations, said the data package approach – developed in conjunction with Orange – will allow users to send data across most European countries for up to five years without further payment. This part is planned to enter production early in 2017.

EBV has also merged its EBVchips and EBV solutions divisions into a new organisation called EBV Product Innovations. However, the established brand names will be retained.

According to Dr Voskamp: “By combining these forces, and especially the know how, we will be able to enhance and improve both programmes. Using the synergy of both will enable us to help our customers to find the right solution and bring products to market more quickly.”
