Safe driving and sustainable mobility are the main drivers for the global automotive industry and Aspocomp has been supporting the industry for a long period.
Automotive sector is a major investor R&D and it is responsible for 28% of total spending in EU. Thus we can expect new innovations within the industry. The number of PCB components increases as well as the functionality of the PCB.
Aspocomp has been certified for IATF 16949:2016 standard and with our partner network we can support all the phases of automotive development.
Multiple trends will increase the demand for PCBs
- fuel consumption will be reduced
- hybrid technologies will be used in increasing volumes
- energy and heat management systems will have increased importance for automotive sector.
Safety measures have been successful in new vehicles. In EU the road fatalities have been reduced by roughly 60% since the turn of the century even if the number of passenger cars on Europe’s roads have increased from 200 million to 260 million during the same period.
We are familiar with Advanced Driver Assistance systems and improved braking solutions to name a couple of applications. Lighting solutions as well as various information, entertainment and navigation systems within vehicles also drive the usage of many types of PCBs and electronic systems.
In addition to the high-end car market strong development is taking place in more affordable automotive segment. Many of the innovations have been started in F1 cars and will later find their place in low cost vehicles.
