Bright Outlook for Rigid-Flex PCB Demand

Reading time ( words)

The overall demand for handset PCBs is being affected negatively by the global deceleration in smartphone sales. However, rising adoption of multi-lens cameras by smartphones is set to stimulate demand for rigid-flex PCBs in 2019 and onward, according to a Digitimes report.

The penetration rate of multi-lens camera models to the overall Android smartphone shipments is expected to reach 10% in 2019. Major China-based smartphone vendors have already had their flagship models adopt triple-lens camera systems this year. PCB firms including Compeq Manufacturing and Unimicron Technology, with their rigid-flex boards, have reportedly entered the supply chain of China-based smartphone companies who were among the first companies adopting triple-lens cameras in their devices.

Book Recommendation: The Age of Agile—How Smart Companies are Transforming the Way Work Gets Done

07/26/2018 | Dan Beaulieu
This new book by Stephen Denning addresses the issue of change and adaptability like no other book I have read thus far…and I read a lot of business books! Centering on meeting the challenges of new and often changing business environments and how to meet them, the author’s focus on agility runs from the power of smaller teams that are focused on solving problems quickly while eschewing the normal bureaucratic road blocks that have been in place for decades.
