Day 2 Slide Show: International Electronics Circuit Exhibition in Shenzhen

Reading time ( words)

Day 2 of the newly named International Electronics Circuit Exhibition, formerly known as the HKPCA Show, wrapped up in Shenzhen, China. 

Though there have been reports of a slowdown over the last several months, the general feeling here is that things are picking up again and the future is looking better. Driving this feeling is the ongoing conversation around 5G. Perhaps still a bit of a buzzword for the general public, the industry is clearly focused on 5G as the next big thing here. 

Other topics of conversation on the show floor include automation, smart factories, and the on-going move toward green processes. Companies are investing in green manufacturing as regulations continue to tighten.

What has evolved are faster and cheaper computers, and more complex and integrated networking.
