50 PCB007 MAGAZINE I MARCH 2018 Nordson MARCH's New Plasma Systems Enable Very High Throughput Processing for 3D and Wafer-Level Package Assembly E Nordson MARCH, a Nordson company, in- troduces the MesoSPHERE™ Plasma System for very-high throughput processing of 3D and wafer-level packaging processes such as fan- in, fan-out, wafer-level, and panel-level -han- dling wafers up to 450 mm and panels up to 480 mm. Spending on Internet of Things in CEE to Exceed $11 Billion in 2018 E Spending on the Internet of Things (IoT) in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) is forecast to reach $11.2 billion in 2018, an increase of 15.5% over the $9.7 billion recorded in 2017. New Tech Standard Could Shape Future of Electronics Design E Researchers from Electronics and Comput- er Science at the University of Southampton have discovered a way of enhancing the ca- pabilities of an emerging nanotechnology that could open the door to a new generation of electronics. PC-Based Automation Market Worth $38.01 Billion by 2023 E The market is expected to grow from $29.92 billion in 2018 to $38.01 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 4.9% between 2018 and 2023. Some of the major factors driving the growth of the PC-based automation market are the evolu- tion of IIoT and rising demand for smart au- tomation solutions, increasing need for effi- cient monitoring in manufacturing plants, and growing emphasis on regulatory compliances. Letting Molecular Robots Swarm Like Birds E A team of researchers from Hokkaido Univer- sity and Kansai University has developed DNA- assisted molecular robots that autonomously swarm in response to chemical and physical signals, paving the way for developing future nano-machines. Breathable, Wearable Electronics on Skin for Long-term Health Monitoring E A hypoallergenic electronic sensor can be worn on the skin continuously for a week with- out discomfort, and is so light and thin that us- ers forget they even have it on, says a group of researchers at the University of Tokyo and their collaborators. Sensors and Big Data Provide Farmers with Decision-Making Support E Researchers in the field of e-agriculture like to repeat an anecdote according to which farm- ers used to tell their children they should study if they wanted to leave for the town but now tell them to study if they want to stay on the farm.
