Electronic industry transferred to Vietnam from China.

The electronic industry transferred to Vietnam from China. Now Vietnam emerged as a major exporter of electronic. Vietnamese population has reached 90 million. Some global companies such as Samsung, Intel, LG have invested hundreds of millions on building factories at Vietnam that making Vietnam become the world’s 12th largest exporter of electrnic products.

Ten years ago, the Vietnamese actor insignificant role in the global electronics supply chain, but as of last year, exports of electronic products in Vietnam jumped to $ 38 billion.

Of course, this figure can not be $ 560 billion with China’s exports par, but it makes Vietnam ranks among the world’s 12th largest exporter of electronic products. Due to rising Chinese labor costs, an aging population, many electrical manufacturing companies will invest transferred to Vietnam.

Samsung is one of the top investors in which, over the years invested billions of dollars to build smart phones factories in Vietnam, Intel and LG have invested $ 1 billion construction of the plant, in addition to other electronic products have to follow suit.

Handle FPC Cable With Care In The Disassembly of iPhone 5s

Here’s a recommended approach to disassemble iPhone5s.

To disassemble iPhone5s, we must start from the screws on the bottom. First of all, screw out the two screws down there with a cross-shape screw-driver.

Next, you are going to use a sort of sucker to suck the screen to open the cellphone. Do not suck it too hard to safeguard the cables. The newly-developed FPC cables are soft, thin and bendable for cellphone application. When you disassemble the phone, handle it cautiously.

Then, you meet with HOME button. And what you need to do is to disconnect the two panels, namely separate the tiny and long cable attaching to HOME button.

After that, cut off the power, put screws and modules aside, disconnect all cables needed before the battery disassembly.

When screen panel connection is done cut, your next mission is simly to take the postposition camera down from the mainboard with a crowbar, and next the preposition one.

After all this parts done, finally you are to get the speaker modules.

Now all iPhone 5s parts are clearly on the desk. When you follow the above-mentioned procedures, matters needing attention are that great care is demanded when you handle with cables like FPC in your disassembly.

And below is another simple way:

Now I am showing people a useful and practical amateur approach to disassemble an Apple phone briefly.

In the very first place, as an amateur, we must adhere to a basic principle–we must be extremely careful and cautious in the disassembly process.

As we go from the screws of the phone, mark down the positions of the screws well in order not to mix a screw to a wrong position. Wrong screwing will endanger the screen.

There will be more than 30 screws. The next step is to disassemble the battery, the antenna, then the mainboard.

Both the disassembly and assembly for mainboard are complicated. As usual, we must try the screw bolt one by one.

What if the phone loses signal when done reassembly? All that we can follow up is to redisassemble the phone. Usually, we can find a reason why the signal is gone. For example, it could be a tiny cable, namely, you might have neglected a tiny round cable for signal function. Handlbe all cables, like FPC cables as well, we need to adjust the cables well in position. If we still find some cables left undone, we must fix them carefully.

Finally, we will implement a test to examine all functions. So this is the amateur approach and Apple phone fans might see to it for reference.

The invention of car airbag

Along with the development of the automotive industry and the improvement of people’s living standard, the car becomes the people in the life most major traffic tools. And the car’s performance improvement that the car has greatly increased, but the safety awareness of people is very weak. The traffic a ety systems are used in succession, is after the accident to ride up protection personnel.ccident is rising year
by year. Because in the process of vehicle driving speed, in the collision accident happens because of inertia, extremely easily to the front row in a personnel cause life threatening. To solve this problem, the safety belt, the airbags are invented.

There are two kinds of the airbags according to the installation location, front airbags and side airbags. Some of the cars also insatalled airbags at the inside of the door to improve the safty of passengers.

The airbag is made of nylon. The inner layer is coated with a polychloroprene to seal the gas. It’s folded into the package placed between the gas generator and decorative cover when the airbag is stationary. All the airbags need flexible flat cables to transport Signal.

The development of flexible printed circuit

FPC is referred to flexible Printed Circuit , as known as flexible circuit boards, flexible printed circuit boards, flexible circuit boards, referred to as soft board or FPC, high density, light weight and is very thin. Mainly used in mobile phone, notebook computers, PDA, digital camera, LCM, and many other products. FPC flexible printed circuit is polyimide or polyester film to the substrate is made of a highly reliable, excellent flexible printed circuit .


1 can be freely bent, folded, winding, free to move and stretch in three-dimensional space.

2 good heat dissipation, F-PC can be used to reduce the size.

3 to achieve lightweight, small, thin, and the elements of the device to achieve integration of wires.

FPC Applications

MP3, MP4 players, portable CD players, home VCD, DVD, digital cameras, cell phones and cell phone batteries, medical, automotive and aerospace epoxy laminates FPC become important species with flexible features to epoxy substrate FCCL (FPC), has a special function due to more widespread use, is becoming an important species epoxy-based CCL. But our late start to be catching up.

Since the epoxy flexible printed circuit boards being used in industrial production, this industry has experienced 30 years of development. From the 1970s, large-scale production began to enter the real industrialization until the late 1980s, due to a new class of polyimide film material advent and application of FPC flexible printed circuit board so that there has been no adhesive formulations the FPC (generally referred to as “two-story type FPC”). In the 1990s the development of the world with high-density circuit corresponding photosensitive coating film, making the FPC has made significant changes in terms of design. Due to open up new application areas, the concept of its products took place in the form of no small change, which it expanded to include a wider range of TAB, COB with the substrate. In the latter half of the 1990s, the rise of high-density FPC began to enter the large-scale industrial production. It’s fine circuit pattern to a more dramatic level of development, high-density FPC market demand is growing rapidly.
