This Month in PCB007 Magazine: The Acceleration or Deceleration of Change

10/16/2020 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
Things have changed a lot in the last year, especially in the realm of technology. Just a year ago, 5G networks were on a smooth path to unquestioned rapid growth dominance. Today, while there has been much progress, and while there are some 5G capable devices available, it is far from universal. In some areas, such as near schools and residential areas, people were putting up roadblocks to 5G towers. Overall, there has been much progress, but the pace seems slower than was expected just a year ago. Some limitations are being identified, and there is already talk of 6G becoming available well before the end of the decade.
