electronica’s Significant Impact in the Electronics Industry

Posted by Advanced MP Technology

Nov 1, 2018 11:00:54 AM


The year 1964 marks when the world-renowned trade show, known as electronica, made its first debut as a venue for companies to showcase their various electronic technologies. Since its beginning, electronica has grown exponentially, as today it’s the world’s largest and highly recognized trade show for a wide range of electronic products and services, including components, systems and applications.


In 1964, electronica’s first show attracted participants and visitors from Europe, the United States, Japan and the Soviet Union. The second electronica in 1966 immensely caught German companies’ interests to grow business. During the same year, the amount of exhibition space nearly doubled, as well as the total number of booth and exhibiting companies. Since then, electronica has grown quickly and consistently to become the industry’s most respected platform for international businesses to showcase and discuss their technological advancements. Today, various technological forums are also hosted at electronica to provide a chance for scientists, engineers and developers to exchange their ideas in person.

As a media-focused event, electronica paved the way for consumers to accept new technologies. The show helped the electronics industry first introduce its innovations to consumers in the 1960’s and 1970’s with developments such as the floppy disk in 1969, the microprocessor in the early 1970’s, and teletext services in 1977. In recent years, 5G, Internet of Things, electric cars, artificial intelligence, and blockchains have all been key topics at electronica.

Each year, the electronica experience is redefined with more attendance and participation recorded at every show. The first electronica in 1964 started with only 140 exhibitors participating with 13,400 visitors in attendance. electronica 2016 had a historical turnout with 2,913 exhibitors and 73,451 visitors. In 2018, with additional halls, electronica is expected to be bigger than ever before!

As the electronics industry globally expands, electronica catches the wave as well. The year 2000 signifies the beginning of a new era for electronica with the birth of electronica India and electronica China following in 2002. Since then, both electronica India and electronica China have been continually running on an annual basis, attracting more visitors and exhibitors each year. The international expansion of electronica has helped connect different branches of the electronics industry as well as stimulate new technological developments.

After consecutive participation for over 20 years, Advanced MP Technology is looking forward to showcasing its technically advanced sourcing capabilities and supply chain solutions at electronica 2018 once again. Senior staff from our European offices will be present at the show as well as management teams from our America and Asia headquarters. Come visit us at Hall C4, Booth 241 at electronica 2018 in Messe München International to see how our truly advanced process can empower our customers’ component sourcing and supply chain management needs.

The Rising Demand of Power Management ICs within the Electronic Component Industry

Posted by Advanced MP Technology

Oct 3, 2018 9:15:17 AM



The power management integrated circuit market is rapidly expanding due to the continual advancement in technology and large interests in energy efficiency. This IC type is quickly developing and supporting devices that are following the trend of becoming smaller and smarter. These devices hold various types of power management ICs which include, but is not limited to, voltage regulators, integrated ASSP power management ICs, battery management ICs, switching controllers, power factor corrections and gate drivers. While voltage regulators are the most commonly used electronic component, all contribute to the power management systems found in most end-products.


When utilized, power management ICs function by managing the power requirements within handheld devices, thus giving end-product the ability to become smarter and operate more efficiently. As a result, the demand for more power management ICs within the electronic component industry is constantly increasing.

As both consumption and the cost of energy rises globally, maximizing energy efficiency has become a popular topic. Several government policies are now in place to reduce energy consumption, emissions and costs. Power management ICs used in battery operated devices serve as a solution to help reduce energy consumption as they regulate and monitor the flow of power from in and out of the device.

Most portable devices, such as smartphones and tablets, depend on power management ICs to deliver long life expectancies. The development of IoT, smart cities, energy efficiency as well as the advanced technology in smartphones all contribute to the overall demand. As power management ICs continue to develop, they enhance and support the overall operating performance of devices. Globally, the demand for more efficient and longer lasting smartphones is rising. By 2021, 50% of world’s total amount of electronic devices will be smartphones.

With demand expected to exponentially rise, multiple reports reveal that the power management IC market is expected to grow within the electronic component industry. According to a report from Transparency Market Research, the power management IC market is forecast to have a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.6% from 2018 to 2026, resulting in US $56.48 billion revenue by the end of 2026. Market Research NewsWire also reported the market having a different CAGR of 6.4% resulting in US $61.33 billion revenue by year 2023.

Additionally, reported lead time ranges for power management IC products in 3Q18 vary by manufacturer. While Diodes Inc.’s lead times for multi-source analog / power integrated circuits is 14-16 weeks, ON Semiconductor and STMicroelectronics reveals that their lead times are 30+ weeks. The complete report reveals that each electronic component market’s lead times trends and current pricing trends listed are either in stable or increasing states.

Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, STMicroelectronics, Maxim, ON Semi, Fujitsu, Analog Devices and Linear Technology Corp. are major manufacturers who are dominating the power management IC market with items such as Linear Technology’s LT1616ES6, LT1613CS5 and LT1933ES6, Maxim’s MAX1763 and MAXM17503, and STMicroelectronics’ L6727 and L6739 displaying high demand.
