The 2015 Roadmap was developed by five Product Emulator Groups (PEGs) and 19 Technology Working Groups (TWGs). The TWGs responded to the inputs and requirements outlined by representatives of OEMs in the five Product Emulator Groups (PEGs). These groups included more than 500 direct participants from over 280 private corporations, consortia, government agencies, and universities in 20 countries.
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 roadmap identifies major trends in the evolution of electronic connector technology, with an emphasis on identifying potentially disruptive events (business and technology). It provides the information needed to identify critical technology and infrastructure gaps, prioritize R&D needs to meet those gaps, and initiate activities that address industry needs.
Through its roadmaps, iNEMI charts future opportunities and challenges for the electronics manufacturing industry. These widely utilized roadmaps:
• Help OEMs, EMS providers and suppliers prioritize investments in R&D
and technology deployment
• Influence the focus of university-based research
• Provide guidance for government investment in emerging technologies
Electronic connectors provide a disconnectable electrical connection between circuits in or among connected electronic systems. Connector technologies support all equipment and cable markets with a myriad of standard and custom designs, specifications, physical and ergonomic requirements. Connector technology has few technical barriers aside from minimum size, and with fiber optic connectors (FO) will remain an important electronic packaging, system IO, and intersystem component of future electronic products.
