In the field of communications, PCBs are widely used in wireless networks, transmission networks, data communications, and fixed-line broadband. Related products include backplanes, high-speed multilayer boards, high-frequency microwave boards, and multi-functional metal substrates.
High-frequency amplifiers and filtering equipment often also use PCBs, boost stations, receivers, frequency boards, mixing decks, and microphones.
The arrival of 5G has a huge impact on the communications PCB industry.
In 5G wireless base stations, bearer networks, transmission networks, and core network hardware facilities, the application of PCB hardware will increase significantly. At the same time, 5G terminal equipment, such as mobile phones and smartwatches, also need to be updated and synchronized with the communication technology. This part of the PCB demand is much greater than the infrastructure part. To sum up, on the one hand, there is an increase in "quantity", and on the other hand, the increase in technical difficulty leads to an increase in "price".
