Advanced Electronics encompasses a wide range of diverse applications, such as PCB via drilling, solar and display processing, and electronic component manufacturing. We view the Advanced Electronics market to be similar to the Semiconductor market, in that each market benefits from the same defining trends of miniaturization and complexity. We believe packaging technologies will become increasingly critical to enabling better performance, design and cost of electronic devices – from high-end smartphones, to electric vehicles, to high performance microprocessors for data centers and artificial intelligence. And Advanced PCBs and Package Substrates are the next key drivers of these trends. Learn More
