Dear Readers,

The EMVA announced that Dr. Bernd Liepert, President of euRobotics and former Chief Innovation Officer at KUKA, will open the 17th edition of EMVA’s annual Business Conference. His opening keynote titled Robotics needs Vision – Vision needs Robotics will give insights to the world of robotics and especially to the ongoing projects to uptake robotics in Europe supported by the European Commission. Find out more here.

Also in the News: Xilinx has entered into a takeover agreement for Solarflare Communications. The acquisition will enable Xilinx to combine its FPGA, MPSoC and ACAP solutions with Ultra-Low-Latency Network Interface Card (NIC) technology and Onflat Solarflare application-accelerating software to create converged SmartNIC solutions. More about this here.

This month the spotlight is on the products of IDS and Edmund Optics. They are definitely worth a look.

Best Regards,

Florian Niethammer
