PCBECI Equipment Networking Pilot Team Formed in Taiwan


Reading time ( words)

A PCBECI (PCB equipment communication interface) equipment networking pilot team, organized by Taiwan Printed Circuit Association (TPCA), has kicked off operation seeking to boost network connectivity of Taiwan-made PCB equipment and help domestic PCB makers pursue smart production, according to a Digitimes report.

TPCA said Taiwan's PCB industry, though the largest in the world, lags far behind the panel industry or other semiconductor sectors in terms of digitalization or smart production, as up to 85% of automated machines adopted by PCB makers lack networking capability.
