A technology that makes its mark on our everyday lives: Whether in smartphones, so-called wearables or driver-assistance systems, displays are now used in a large number of applications. The demands they must meet are correspondingly diverse. For example, displays must be particularly sturdy in the industrial sector, but what counts in medicine is high resolution. And flexible displays are gaining ground in portable products.

Electromechanics and system periphery

Whether it comes to switches, plug-in connectors or relays—the sector Electromechanics at electronica unites all the areas dealing with connections that conduct electricity. The topic of EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) also plays an important role here. This area also has great deal of space devoted to casing technology. After all, a variety of housings are needed to effectively protect electronic components and PCBs from external influences.

Electronic manufacturing services (EMS)

Until recently, providing electronic manufacturing services primarily meant specializing as a manufacturing service provider in the high-volume production of electronic assemblies. Now, providers have expanded their capabilities along the supply chain. The focus is now on securing supply capability by integrating customers and suppliers. In addition, EMS specialists are increasingly involved in obsolescence management.
