Electronica 2014: The "Spark" Returns"
A spark returned to Munich's
Deutsches Museum during electronica 2014--perhaps
not quite the jolt visitors fortunate enough to witness the spectacular
high-voltage display in person experienced, but a spark nonetheless. The energy
at this year's show indicates the health of the industry--once described a few
years ago by EIPC's John Ling as an ailing patient--has taken a welcome turn
toward recovery. Conversations with both material suppliers and European PCB
fabricators hinted at improved sentiment all around.
I noticed a significant upturn in interest in the
high-speed arena from automotive and automotive-related companies. Increased
electronic content in vehicles across the board seems to be driving automotive
and infotainment manufacturers toward higher speed materials and the associated
tools required for their design and fabrication
