iNEMI Publishes Product Sector Chapters from the 2019 Roadmap


Reading time ( words)

The International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI) today announced release of four of the seven Product Emulator Group (PEG) chapters of the 2019 Roadmap. The following PEG chapters are now available online:

  • Aerospace & Defense
  • High-End Systems
  • Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
  • Medical

The remaining PEG chapters — Automotive, Office & Consumer and Portable & Wireless — will be published in one of the later waves.

The PEG chapters define product requirements for specific market sectors, anticipating technology and business-related needs over a 10-year horizon. These needs include everything from cost targets to test requirements to specific technology attributes.

Discussion of these needs includes a key attributes spreadsheet for most sectors (the IIoT chapter is an exception as IIoT is a key enabler for all the other markets). These PEG chapters were developed by industry subject matter experts from the specific sector covered. Additional reviews and input were gathered for a broad-based view of that emulator’s scope.

New this year is the Industrial Internet of Things chapter. It discusses key aspects of the IIoT infrastructure, a network connected by communications technologies that results in systems that can monitor, collect, exchange, analyze, and deliver valuable new actionable insights. The chapter presents market predictions around IIOT, details the technological advancements needed and the challenges that must be overcome in the electronics manufacturing industry to fully realize the benefits, plus it offers recommendations for a successful conversion to Industry 4.0. 

Product Sector Trends 

The 2019 PEG chapters offer current market information for each of the product sectors, such as market trends, influencers, and an informed forecast of the product characteristics at the electronic component level as it pertains to each market sector through 2029. These chapters also include in-depth analysis of the challenges facing each market to sustain profitability and growth.

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

04/16/2021 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
I’m sure it’s just me being hyperaware, but I can’t shake it: Mars is where it’s at right now. Is it just me, or do you get the same feeling from the news? There are the Mars rovers—three generations of them still rolling, now—and a drone helicopter winding up for a maiden flight any day now. But that’s not all. There’s SpaceX’s StarShip, rapid-prototyping its way into a manned flight to Mars. And NASA’s whole “return to the Moon” project is simply a shakedown for the U.S. government contractors’ Mars flight hardware, too.

IPC Supporting Newcomers in the Industry: Notes from IPC APEX EXPO 2021

04/01/2021 | Marc Carter, Aeromarc
With the wrap-up of IPC APEX EXPO 2021, it was extremely gratifying to note the emphasis placed on getting young people involved to combat the “graying out” knowledge losses facing our industry. A part of that emphasis was reflected in the award ceremony on Tuesday, March 9, which featured some people you may have seen mentioned in my “Better to Light a Candle” columns.
