EBV Elektronik to optimise vertical segment structure
As a part of its focus on its vertical strategy, semiconductor specialist EBV Elektronik has unveiled its new vertical segment structure. With the optimised structure, EBV will promote its market related Automotive, Consumer, Renewable Energies, Healthcare and HighRel segments. For the technology driven segments, EBV will concentrate on FPGA, RF and Wireless, LightSpeed and Identification. Based on EBV’s vertical experience over the past few years, the company has identified the key areas that will take its vertical segment approach to the next level. Maintaining the Automotive, Consumer and Renewable Energies segments, the company is adding healthcare and fitness applications to its former Medical segment, which will now be called Healthcare. Furthermore, with the HighRel segment, EBV is establishing a fifth market related area focusing on markets where high reliability is required, such as avionic, space and defence. The four technology driven segments enable EBV to provide tied cross-market technology and expertise to its customers. Within the next few years, EBV expects significant growth opportunities in the RF and Wireless as well as in the FPGA segments. In LightSpeed, EBV has built a strong market position supported by activities like the EBV LightLab. EBV will continue to strengthen and extend this position. As with the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0 etc., authentication and security will become more important, so EBV will expand the scope of the former RFID segment to include Identification.
