72 The PCB Magazine • March 2016 IoT Chip Market Worth $10.78B by 2022 The IoT chip market is expected to grow from usD 4.58 billion in 2015 to usD 10.78 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 11.5% between 2016 and 2022. Quantum Dot Solids: This Generation's Silicon Wafer? Just as the single-crystal silicon wafer forever changed the nature of electronics 60 years ago, a group of Cornell researchers is hoping its work with quantum dot solids—crystals made out of crystals—can help usher in a new era in electronics. Researchers Engineer an Electronics First, Opening Door to Flexible Electronics An engineering research team at the university of Alberta has invented a new transistor that could revolutionize thin-film electronic devices. The team was exploring new uses for thin film tran- sistors (TFT), which are most commonly found in low-power, low-frequency devices like the display screen you're reading from now. Nanosheet Growth Technique Could Revolutionize Nanomaterial Production After six years of painstaking effort, a group of uni- versity of Wisconsin, Madison materials scientists believe the tiny sheets of the semiconductor zinc oxide they're growing could have huge implica- tions for the future of a host of electronic and bio- medical devices. Total Capital Expenditure of Top Three Semiconductor Manufacturers to Rise 5.4% YoY for 2016 The revenue of the global semiconductor foundry industry is projected to grow by just 2.1% year- on-year for 2016 on account of slowing end mar- ket demand and expanding supply, according to the global market research firm TrendForce. What New Wearable Sensors can Reveal from Perspiration When university of California, Berkeley engineers say they are going to make you sweat, it is all in the name of science. specifically, it is for a flex- ible sensor system that can measure metabolites and electrolytes in sweat, calibrate the data based upon skin temperature and sync the results in real time to a smartphone. India's Market Dynamics are Impacting Digital Business Implementation Widespread failures in realizing return on invest- ment (RoI) in digital technologies for customer experience could create a sense of distrust among buyers and decision makers in India about the po- tential for digital business, according to Gartner Inc. New Bimetallic Alloy Nanoparticles for Printed Electronic Circuits Printed electronics has the potential to enable low- cost fabrication of electronics on flexible or curved surfaces, which will lead to the use of electronics in more varied applications. We will be able to fabri- cate homemade mobile phones or smart watches using a printer in the future. Outlook of Small Business Owners by Sector 2016 Most retailers are likely to say growth is the top priority for their business (86%). however, they are least likely to plan to make capital investments (67%) or hire staff (58%) over the next six months, even though they are most confident they would be able to access the funding needed for growth (97%). Organic Crystals Allow Creating Flexible Electronic Devices A team of researchers from Moscow state univer- sity, in cooperation with Russian and foreign col- leagues, learnt to grow organic semiconductor crystals with extremely high light-emitting effi- ciency that promise a bright future for wet-pro- cessed organic optoelectronics.
