New IPC APEX EXPO™ Solar Assembly and Solar Living Pavilion Lights Up Growing Opportunities for EMS Industry

Feb 24, 2011 | The assembly of solar panels is very similar to the assembly of printed boards, making solar power a hot opportunity for electronics assemblers. A small but growing market, solar module production is projected to increase 273% from 2010 to 2014, according to iSuppli. Shedding some light on the rapidly advancing business of solar panel assembly, IPC will host the Solar Assembly and Solar Living Pavilion on the show floor at IPC APEX EXPO, April 12–14, 2011, in Las Vegas.
