LONDON, Nov. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- What potential effect will new and innovative technologies have on electronic interconnects in the years to come? - What does the future hold for copper, fiber, and wireless interconnects? Will one outpace the other?- Which innovative technologies have the potential to drastically change the traditional process for new electronic interconnect development?- Can existing connector design and manufacturing technology produce connectors that will satisfy future application requirements via sustaining innovation?- Will the convergence of potentially disruptive technologies appearing on the horizon begin to obsolete many traditional interconnects as we know them?- What new technical requirements may spur the interconnect industry to take a more proactive role in the development of interconnect technology? The evolution of connector design has traditionally followed a well-developed path. A need is recognized, a product designed, and the growth cycle begins. Will new innovations, their rate of adoption, and the technologies they represent change this path? Examining 10 potentially disruptive technologies, and their effect on traditional copper, fiber and wireless interconnect, is Bishop & Associates newest research report, Impact of Disruptive Innovations on Electronic Interconnects. Don't let the past define your path to the future, order your copy of the Impact of Disruptive Innovations on Electronic Interconnects today. Investigating the effect new and innovative technology has, or will have, on the electronic interconnect industry is covered in Bishop and Associates newest research report, Impact of Disruptive Innovations on Electronic Interconnects. This nine-chapter, 198-page research report examines past and future growth of copper, fiber optic, and wireless interconnects, while discussing the effects new and innovative technologies will have on them over the next five years. To a large degree, manufacturers of electronic connectors have taken their cue from leading original equipment manufacturers as they have defined their specific interconnect requirements. As a need arises at a leading OEM, the assumption is made that demand for a new product with an advanced feature will become broad-based. Research and development resources are applied, a new product is production tooled, and the anticipated sales growth curve begins. Over the years, the connector industry has made a number of significant leaps in technology, but most new connectors are the result of evolutionary not revolutionary development.
