Microcontrollers, DSP, & IP Core Chip Market Report

Microcontrollers, Digital signal processor, and IP core chips are the backbone of all the systems and products that modern day consumers use to communicate, travel, entertain, work, produce energy, and increase comfort. Over the last few decades, Moore’s Law which connects the increasing power and decreasing price of semiconductors, led to a tremendous growth of the electronics industry. This, in turn, has led to the continuous production of devices and solutions which are cheaper, more powerful, and smaller in size. Also, the government interests in building semiconductor industries in the developing countries, such as China and India, is a push for the Microcontrollers, DSPs, and IP core chips market and all the related semiconductor markets. Details of the new report, table of contents and ordering information can be found on Electronics.ca Publications’ web site.

Distributed Fiber Optic Sensor Market

The distributed fiber optic sensor market stood at $585 million in 2013. The market is projected to be $1.458 billion in 2018 with 70% associated with the oil and gas segments, according to a recent market survey report conducted by the Photonic Sensor Consortium.

The Photonics Sensor Consortium in conjunction with Light Wave Venture was started in 2003 as an independent organization to assist in the market development and commercialization of photonic sensor technology. The primary focus has been on distributed fiber optic sensors. Over the last 11years, the Consortium has tracked the market and provided overall projections and market analysis for active participants. This report is the first to be available to the general photonics industry.

Photonic Sensor Consortium Market Report

Why is there such a strong interest in this technology? Fiber optic sensors represent a technology base that can be applied to a multitude of sensing applications. There are several characteristic advantages of fiber optics that make their use especially attractive for sensors:

  • Nonelectrical
  • Explosion-proof
  • Small size and weight
  • Allow access into normally inaccessible areas and harsh environments
  • Immune to radio frequency interference (RFI) and electro-magnetic interference (EMI)
  • Solid-state reliability
  • High accuracy
  • Can facilitate distributed sensing

Most physical properties can be sensed optically with fibers. Light intensity, displacement (position), temperature, pressure, rotation, sound, strain, magnetic field, electric field, radiation, flow, liquid level, chemical analysis, and vibration are just some of the phenomena that can be sensed.

Fiber optic sensors have been used successfully for many years in military gyroscopes and hydrophones. However, their use in smart oil wells has been the key to enabling North America to be on a path to energy independence.

Download IPC Standards – Everything You Need From Start To Finish

To achieve a high quality end product and maintain a competitive position in the marketplace, you need to infuse quality throughout the manufacturing process.

Did you know there is an IPC standard associated with nearly every step of printed circuit board production and assembly?  From design and purchasing to assembly and acceptance, Electronics.ca Publications offers IPC Standards to help you assure superior quality, reliability and consistency in the electronic assemblies that go into your product. Download IPC Standards Spec Tree – PDF file.

As with the manufacturing process — which uses a step-by-step approach – IPC standards also build upon one another. To achieve your desired results, it’s important to implement the appropriate IPC standards associated with each step of production.

Why Use IPC Standards in Your Manufacturing Process?

  • Gain Control Over End Product Quality and Reliability — Quality and reliability are the cornerstones of competing in the marketplace and critical to your company’s reputation and profitability. By implementing IPC standards throughout the manufacturing process, you help ensure better performance, longer life and compliance with lead-free regulations.
  • Improve Communication with Suppliers and Employees — IPC standards are the standards that your competitors, suppliers and EMS providers use. Working from an established IPC standard helps all of you to “speak the same language” — the language of the global electronic industry. In addition, using IPC standards eliminates confusion for employees, because they know they need to perform to an established industry standard.
  • Help Contain Costs — Ensuring that your design and the bare boards you purchase comply with IPC standards allows you to produce electronic assemblies that meet stringent quality tests down the line, minimizing costly delays, rework and scrap.

The Most Popular IPC Documents are available from Electronics.ca Publications in PDF Format
