Optical Transceivers Markets to Reach $9.9 Billion by 2020

ELECTRONICS.CA PUBLICATIONS announces the availability of a new report entitled “Optical Transceivers: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2014 to 2020″. The global optical transceivers markets at $3.2 billion in 2013 is anticipated to grow to $9.9 billion by 2020 driven by the availability and cost effectiveness of 40 Gbps, 100 Gbps, and 400 Gbps devices. Next generation devices use less power, are less expensive, and are smaller. The adoption of widespread use of the 100 Gbps devices, and the vast increases in Internet traffic are core to change in the communications infrastructure markets. The vendors in the optical transceivers…

IPC/WHMA-A-620B PDF Download – Requirements and Acceptance for Cable and Wire Harness Assemblies

IPC/WHMA-A-620 is a collection of visual Quality Acceptability Requirements for Cable, Wire and Harness Assemblies.  IPC/WHMA-A-620 can be used as a stand-alone document for purchasing products, however it does not specify frequency of in-process inspection or frequency of end product inspection. No limit is placed on the number of process indicators or the number of allowable repair/rework of defects. Such information should be developed with a statistical process control plan (see IPC-9191).
