2016 Asian Consumer Electronics Show Highlights


Reading time ( words)

The second annual CES Asia in Shanghai, China concluded on May 13, surpassing last year’s event by all measures and reinforcing the show as the premier platform for launching technology in the Asian marketplace. More than 375 companies from 23 countries exhibited across a show floor that spanned 32,000 square meters—expanded from two exhibit halls last year to four this year.

I spent one day at the show and saw a lot of interesting stuff there: robots, automotive electronics, drones, 3D printers, wearable electronic devices, VR, 4K, etc.

Huawei was the only big name from the cellphone market who exhibited; their booth was packed. According to the latest news, Huwaei is becoming the biggest cellphone supplier in the world. This year will be a very important and tough one for most of these smartphone suppliers.

As you can see from my short video tour, there are some new electronics out there that will draw your attention. However, it's hard to predict which one will be the next booming market.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

12/02/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Normally, the holiday season is a slow(ish) news time, but this year just feels different. My opinion is that the technology industry banked up a whole bunch of innovations and new products during the pandemic disruptions, which are coming to market as quickly as possible. The November/December news is full of technology discussion, as my selections this week clearly demonstrate.

3D Electronic Devices With Additive Manufacturing

11/29/2022 | Shavi Spinzi, Nano Dimension
Imagine fabricating PCBs without the hassle of drilled vias and metal plating. Imagine PCBs with near-perfect registration. If we take it to the next stage, imagine drawing electronics in 3D space. There is a way to do all this with additively manufactured electronics (AME). We just need to start to think in 3D. This will allow us to abandon the 2D limitations that we have become so used to and expand our horizons so that we can climb to higher levels of performance. In this article, I will explore the two fundamental capabilities that are the cornerstones for drawing electronics in 3D space, which is where AME technology and 3D design capabilities converge.

Electronica 2022: Happy to Be Back in Munich

11/21/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
As we stepped out of the hotel into the drizzling rain, we were relieved that it wasn’t snow. Looking down the escalator into the U2 platform in Munich’s Hauptbahnhof central station early on the morning of Tuesday, Nov. 15 and observing the mass of humanity pushing and shoving to cram into trains to the exhibition centre, it appeared that a significant proportion of the international electronics industry had gathered to attend electronica 2022, co-located with SEMICON Europa and recognised as the world’s leading trade fair and conference for electronics.
