Automotive intelligence and electrification, PCB will obtain opportunity

The automotive industry has developed to the present and is inseparable from our lives. In recent years, the concepts of new energy vehicles and unmanned driving are hot, and the traditional automobile industry is developing in the direction of intelligence and electrification. As an indispensable part of the car, the PCB (print circuit board) will undoubtedly be affected and the development of technology and products will change accordingly. The two booms of new energy vehicles and unmanned driving will bring many positive effects to the PCB industry. In the public impression, PCB circuit boards are more related to consumer electronics products, but with the increasing number of electronic components used in new energy vehicles, more and higher requirements are placed on PCB products, thus high-reliability PCB can get more opportunities. Through past experience in the military and medical fields, it is foreseeable that the boom in new energy vehicles will increase the reliability requirements of products.

Automotive Electronics, 5G will drive the development of PCB industry

The growth rate of smart phones, PC (personal computer)s and tablets has generally slowed down, and the consumer electronics products in the PCB market has weakened, resulting in a decline in demand for PCBs. In the future growth of the PCB industry, in addition to automotive electronics, 5G applications are also potential. Compared with the 4G era, the 5G era will change in transmission speed and application, which will greatly affect the future development of the consumer electronics industry. In 2019, the circuit board industry will usher in revolutionary innovations, from the use of materials, production technology to applications.

Give attention to both battery life and thinness, product thermal design requirements are high

Nowadays, mobile phone users are everywhere, the battery life has become one of the important considerations for consumers when purchasing mobile phones and other products. The pursuit of high-power products for electronic products is getting higher and higher, but mobile phones are developing towards thinner and lighter. What challenges will this contradiction bring to the industry?
First, the internal space of the product is getting smaller and smaller, and more specialized, smarter, and thinner chips and devices will be needed. However, such chips and devices may generate more heat during use, so at the design level, need better thermal design to meet higher power requirements.
Secondly, from the battery side, improving the battery life requires a better battery. In addition to the volume, the control and management of the battery can not be ignored, therefore, the battery energy management also needs a superior design.
