102 The PCB Magazine • October 2015 1 Characterization of PCB Material & Manufacturing Technology for High-Frequency concepts like industry 4.0, internet of Things, m2m communication, smart homes and communication in, or to cars are maturing. all these applications are based on the same demanding requirement— a considerable amount of data and increased data transfer rate. These arguments present major chal- lenges to PcB design and manufacturing. 2 Flex Market Evolution Flex circuits are designed to solve electronic pack- aging and assembly problems, solve interconnec- tion issues, assist in miniaturization, and provide a dynamic electro-mechanical solution. They are configured with repeatable conductors that foolproof assembly errors. Flex is used in designs where standard PcBs, connectors and cable as- semblies just don't provide the right electrical or mechanical solution. 3 Automotive Technology: The Next Driving Force in Electronic Manufacturing The devices we have come to expect in luxury and high-end vehicles are now becoming available and even common in lower priced ones. While that significantly increases automotive electronic device manufacture volume, the next wave will dwarf what we have experienced to date. 4 Detroit vs. Silicon valley: What's Driving the Proliferation of Automotive Electronics? For the past several decades, modern cars have not changed much. They have four wheels, an engine, a radio (possibly even an 8-track) and seatbelts. over time, however, cars' electronics parts have evolved faster than any other part of a car with en- hancements like power windows, power mirrors, seat heaters and gPS navigation.
