China to enforce Electric Vehicle safety by 2021

Thermal runaway in Electric Vehicles (EVs) is a major concern for potential consumers, manufacturers and regulators, as thermal runaway of lithium ion batteries is the main cause of fires in EVs. Several high profile vehicle fires, stationary energy storage fires in South Korea and bus fires in China have made headlines in recent years.

Electronics to become user-dedicated smart material

An important new trend is buying electrics and electronics you customise to function not just shape. See the new IDTechEx report, 'Complete Electronics as Smart Material, User-Customised 2020-2040'. Builders, textile manufacturers, those doing home improvement and others are starting to buy electrically-smart materials direct from materials companies, bypassing the electronics industry.

The future of flexible printed circuit boards

Flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) is a novel approach to electronic flexible printed circuit boards manufacturing that aims to combine the best of printed and conventional electronics. Conductive interconnects, and as many additional components as possible, are printed onto a flexible substrate, whereas the IC (integrated circuit) is produced separately using photolithography and then mounted (usually as a bare die, without packaging).

Self-charging everything: battle for the high ground

When some full-function, always-on smartwatches are able to self-charge, the others will look like the horse-drawn cart. When Internet of Things nodes are self-charging at the right size and price, the market for them will increase one thousand times.
