Abstract: The Effelsberg-Bonn HI Survey EBHIS covers the whole sky north of Dec2000= -5 deg. on a fully sampled angular grid. Using state-of-the-artFPGA-spectrometers we perform a Milky Way and an extragalactic HI survey inparallel. Moreover, the high dynamic range and short dump time of the HIspectra allow to overcome the vast majority of all radio-frequency-interferenceRFI events. The Milky Way data will be corrected for the stray-radiation biaswhich warrants a main-beam efficiency of 99%. Towards the whole survey area weexceed the sensitivity limit of HIPASS, while towards theSloan-Digital-Sky-Survey SDSS area EBHIS offers an order of magnitude highermass sensitivity. The Milky Way data will be a cornerstone for multi-frequencyastrophysics, while the extragalactic part will disclose detailed informationon the structure formation of the local universe.
