Misusing your equipment

By | Blog, Uncategorized | No Comments

I was talking to a company in the Agricultural machinery sector when I discovered something that shocked me. They spend six figure sums fixing warranty claims for one of their product lines. When the claim first comes in, they generally just sent out a replacement part. And when the second or third from the same customer comes in, they’ll have…

In case you haven’t been keeping an eye on the news this week, a USB Drive was found in the street containing sensitive Heathrow security data, including the Queen’s route to the airport. And it’s not the first time something like this has happened. Back in April, I wrote about malware that was designed to look like Siemens software found…

We’re exhibiting at the Engineering Design Show (also featuring the Electronics Design Show AND the Embedded Design Show) and I’m really excited.

By | Blog | No Comments

I was contacted the other day by a company that makes an amazing 360 degree HDR camera. What was clear right from the off was that their product was exceptional – I’d never seen anything like it before. What was less clear was exactly how we could help them. The guy I was speaking to explained… The camera’s really lightweight…

Narrower focus?

By | Blog | No Comments

I was just reading a really interesting article that rang true for me, and I thought it might for others too. It’s a piece written by Neil Poxon for theengineer.co.uk, and Neil expresses the view that “innovation success” is often achieved by a small organisation working hand-in-hand with a large one. His point is that because larger organisations have a…

How much thought do you give to the data you store and transfer and how you store or transfer it? The reason I ask is that I came across an article the other day about the “USB Killer”.

As you probably know by now, Nexus is 30 this year! With that in mind, I thought you might be interested to know why my dad John started Nexus all those years ago. Back in 1987, Dad had been working with Datakey for a couple of years already, and had an understanding of how good the product was. It was…
