The top 10 technology trends to watch in electronics manufacturing, according to research conducted by IPC–Association Connecting Electronics Industries, include:
- High performance.
- High-density interconnect (HDI).
- Embedded technology.
- Flexible circuits.
- Lead free.
- Halogen free.
- Light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
- Printed electronics.
The white paper is the first in a series of studies by IPC to assess the current state of development and the likely future direction of the trends. IPC also hopes to pinpoint and quantify the market opportunities that these trends represent to the electronic interconnect supply chain.
