Taiwan PCB Production to Post Marginal Growth in 2015

Reading time ( words)

Taiwan's PCB production value is expected to register a slight 1.46% year-on-year growth in 2015, according to data compiled by the Taiwan Printed Circuit Association (TPCA), as reported by Digitimes. Affected by a slowdown in demand for PCs, smartphones and notebooks in the end-market, the total production value is expected to reach just NT$571.3 billion ($17.59 billion).

In the second quarter of 2015, the production value of PCB products rolled out by Taiwan-based firms in Taiwan and China totaled NT$137.7 billion, up 1.8% sequentially and 1.1% on year.

Buoyed by seasonal effects, the production value in the third quarter is expected to grow 5.9% on quarter but still represent a decline of 4.3% on year.

A Guide to High-reliability PCBs from Design to Specification

07/24/2019 | Jeff Beauchamp, NCAB Group
Creating reliable PCBs is an outcome of considering all aspects that can affect reliability as early as possible in the design process. The further down the design process, the more expensive and risky it can be to fix. As they say, everything starts with the design. Because a good board design improves the reliability of the end product and lessens the risk of failure.
