Welcome to the June 2022 edition of EE Times Europe magazine!
Embedded systems are essential to our lives and span applications ranging from transportation systems to wearable implantable devices, smart homes, smart meters and communications infrastructure. However, embedded systems remain vulnerable to remote attacks and in some cases security risks can lead to fatalities.
Cyberattacks have increased in recent years, and as 5G rolls out more widely, these attacks are likely to become more frequent, complex, and impactful. The European Union Agency for Cybersecurity reported more than double the number of cyberattacks against European entities in 2020 compared to the previous year. Protecting embedded systems is essential but difficult.
In this issue, and as part of the Embedded World 2022 conference in Nuremberg, Germany, we’ll explain why embedded system security matters and look at some innovative approaches to designing secure systems.
In an open letter to the EE Times Europe community, Carlos Lee, Managing Director of the European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC), reflects on photonics and microelectronics in Europe as two sides of the same coin of European sovereignty of deep technology. Must read!
