IDTechEx discusses making sustainable electronics tangible
Enhancing ‘sustainability’ is a widely held aspiration within the electronics industry – realising this transition is considerably more difficult, IDTechEx explores.
Energy storage: a global enabler for world energy transition
The energy crisis and decarbonisation requirements speed up the process of finding alternative solutions, and energy storage plays an important role in applications such as electric vehicle applications and renewable energy.
Printed electronics enables R2R, additive and digital electronics manufacturing
Can electronics manufacturing be reconfigured for our digital, environmentally conscious age? IDTechEx’s new report, ‘Manufacturing Printed Electronics 2023-2033’, explores a wide range of manufacturing innovations that will enable additive, digital, and higher throughput electronics production across many length scales.
The future of sustainable electronics manufacturing
A new wave of electronics manufacturing is on the horizon, aiming to satisfy the increasing demand for sustainability and mitigate the impact of volatile energy prices.
Material informatics for conductive ink development
How can advanced functional materials such as conductive inks be developed more quickly?
Decarbonising the electronics industry with sustainable manufacturing
A new wave of electronics manufacturing is on the horizon, driven forward by volatile energy prices and increasing demand for sustainability.
What does 2023 hold for printed/flexible electronics?
With applications ranging from energy harvesting to sensing, and applicability to sectors being as varied as healthcare and automotive, printed/flexible electronics are set to change our expectations of what electronics can provide and where they can be utilised.
IDTechEx investigates building the house of the future
Smart homes have started with add-on appliances like Google home, smart fridges, or ring doorbells. These plug-in features are helpful to personalise a house to the needs of the inhabitants but can be clunky, with outlets used up and unsightly wiring across walls and floors. Coming next is built-in technology, ubiquitous throughout the building and, eventually, the neighbourhood.
Innovation within sustainable electronics manufacturing
In the aftermath of COP27, sustainability is once again at the forefront of global discussion. Debates surrounding emissions reductions, water security, and renewable energy are at centre-stage with many politicians, businesses, investors, and think tanks enthusiastic to bring about meaningful change.
IDTechEx reports on US Sanctions on Chinese semiconductors
According to IDTechEx, on 7th of October 2022, the US announced a series of targeted updates to its export regulations concerning semiconductors and associated technologies in China.
Advanced semiconductor packaging paves way to data-centric future
If the future were to be categorised in one word, it would be "data-centric". For decades, IC vendors have designed chips that have all functions integrated on the same die; however, scaling monolithic IC becomes more difficult and costly as the industry sees the slowdown of Moore's law.
IDTechEx reports: the biggest opportunities for haptics
IDTechEx announces its report into the market growth of haptic feedback technology and its many areas of research and development.
Evaluating the sustainability of 3D electronics
As electronics are becoming increasingly ubiquitous, there is a clear trend toward greater integration. Rather than simply making space for a rigid 2D circuit board (PCB) within the product, electronic functionality will be either mounted conformally onto surfaces or incorporated within the structural materials.
3D electronics enables greater integration
3D electronics is an emerging manufacturing approach that enables electronics to be integrated within or onto the surface of objects.
IDTechEx discusses how semiconductor shortage affects RFID industry
COVID-19 is a double sword. COVID pushes businesses to adopt technologies quicker to improve production as well as management efficiency, in order to survive.
IDTechEx covers the momentum in wearables in 2021
The last 10 years, wearables have progressed from a niche curiosity on the fringes of the consumer electronics sector, to being a key strategic element for many of the largest technology companies in the world.
Making the metaverse: hardware hurdles
The metaverse promises a step-change in how society communicates but, without the hardware technology, will ultimately remain a pipe dream.
Potatoes on Mars - space technology rocketing upwards
Space. The final frontier, the first step in a journey (a new beginning), or a horrifying void matched only by your deep fear of the ocean? Whatever your feelings on space, technology has been steadily pushing forwards to take exploration further, faster, and foodier than ever before.
IDTechEx releases report on its 5G market outlook
IDTechEx has released its most recent version of the 5G market research report: ‘5G Technology, Market and Forecasts 2022-2032’, which explores the key technical, industrial, and regional aspects of the 5G market.
The future of the agricultural robotics industry
IDTechEx has released 'Agricultural Robotics Market 2022-2032', a market research report exploring the technical and market factors that are shaping the emerging industry around agricultural robotics. The agricultural robotics industry has grown quickly in recent years, spurred on by advances in robotics technology and AI, and may be set to help alleviate some of the labour issues that are currently threatening global agriculture.
