Automotive Electronics' Large Demand for PCB Boards

Hits:-   Issuing time:2018-11-15

With the continuous advancement of the automotive industry, automobiles have evolved from complete mechanical devices into a combination of machinery and electronics. The increasing use of electronic technology in automobiles has further promoted the transformation of automobiles from a simple vehicle to a comprehensive platform with functions such as transportation, entertainment and office. As a result, the proportion of automotive electronics in the cost of manufacturing vehicles continues to increase, and the scale in the market is also expanding.

The intelligent driving function opens up a larger imagination for the automobile economy, and the penetration rate in the automotive market continues to increase. As a well-known representative, the ADAS system (advanced driver assistance system) has grown rapidly, gradually infiltrating the mid-range market from the original high-end market, and the improved new sensor technology is also creating new opportunities for system deployment. A variety of operational control, safety control, and peripheral control functions in ADAS require PCBs. It is expected that fully automated vehicles will be equipped with more PCBs to meet driving needs in the future.

At the same time, the volume of millimeter wave radar will also drive the demand for high-frequency PCBs for automobiles. At present, the automobile millimeter wave radar is in a high-speed development. In the next two years, it will be in the heavy-duty period of the automobile millimeter wave radar. Generally, vehicles supporting the ADAS function will use at least 4 millimeter-wave radars. For example, the new Audi A4 uses 5 millimeter-wave radars and the Mercedes-Benz S-class series uses seven millimeter-wave radars, and the average number of millimeter-wave radars in the future will continue to grow.

On the other hand, the demand for PCBs in new energy vehicles is equally promissing. With the support of industrial policies, the domestic new energy vehicle market has maintained rapid growth since 2014. The BMS in new energy vehicles is one of the core components, and as one of the basic components of BMS, PCB boards will also benefit from the development of new energy vehicles.
