BANNOCKBURN, IL – A new report on silicon-on-chip and system-in-package integration identifies embedded components as a key emerging technology in component and product miniaturization. The research, by Prismark Partners, looks at the impact of miniaturization on the supply chain and how it drives certain technology and business shifts.  It also forecasts technology needs and market opportunities for all electronic interconnects segments.

The report focuses on three major end-product industries – PCs, handheld electronics, and datacom/telecom infrastructure equipment. It also addresses leading OEMs’ technology roadmap requirements, according to IPC, which commissioned the report.

The report, “Microelectronics: The Future of Miniaturization and its Impact on Electronics Manufacturing,” is available from IPC.


Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.

The Human Touch

For those who count on the electronics industry for big feats, it’s been a remarkable couple of years.
