Structural Electronics – A Business of Tens of Billions of Dollars Within the Coming Decade

Structural Electronics Industry Report

Structural electronics  is one of the most important developments this century yet most people have never heard of it. Strange – there are over 37 million items on Google. Two years ago, IEEE published,”3D Printing for Rapid Prototyping of Structural Electronics”. Drayson revealed the “structural battery” in the aerofoil of its pure electric racing car. Tesla amazed us with an empty engine compartment and trunk in its pure electric car – the power train was entirely fitted into the sides and floor.

Identifying Emerging and Disruptive Technologies – 2015 Roadmap

The iNEMI Roadmap has become recognized as an important tool for defining the “state of the art” in the electronics industry as well as identifying emerging and disruptive technologies.  It also includes keys to developing future iNEMI projects and setting industry R&D priorities over the next 10 years. The 2015 Roadmap was developed by five Product Emulator Groups (PEGs) and 19 Technology Working Groups (TWGs). There is one additional chapter on Test, developed in 2013, also included.  The PEGs and TWGs are defined below. The TWGs responded to the inputs and requirements outlined by representatives of OEMs in the five…
