Emerging Technologies in Electronics

[TSMC - Digitimes]


- Overview 

Emerging technologies, as the name implies, are technologies whose development and practical application have not yet been widely realized. They represent progressive developments in fields ranging from robotics and artificial intelligence to cognitive science and nanotechnology.

The branch of electronics, in particular, plays a vital role in the fields of signal processing, information processing, and telecommunications. It involves circuits involving components such as sensors, diodes, transistors, and integrated circuits. In simple language, it covers complex electronic instruments and systems such as modern laptops and smartphones.


- Emerging Trends in Electronics

With growing global consumption fueled by a huge hunger for electronic technology and information transmission, we find ourselves in a critical situation where the world's supply of electronic components is drying up. As the Covid-19 outbreak forced the world to work in isolation, demand for electronic devices skyrocketed, driving unprecedented demand for integrated circuits (ICs). While development has kept pace during this crisis, we expect more from our devices.

At the same time, the concurrent launch of 5G offers enhanced connectivity, enabling a new generation of users to access the Internet of Things (IoT) with enhanced capabilities. Cameras and optics have been advanced to unprecedented levels, and higher quality video - 4K and even 8K is now commonplace.

Against the backdrop of an ever-evolving electronic world as the tension between supply and demand intensifies, the implications of its developments need to be closely monitored.

Let's focus on the nature of these changes - what are the current and future trends to watch? Three emerging trends are emerging in the electronics industry:

  • Miniaturization
  • New Data Transmission Connection Standards
  • The democratization of ubiquitous IoT and 5G
