The heart and soul of modern electronics is the semiconductor. It is hard to imagine almost any modern product without a semiconductor as its brain, from the smallest piece of consumer technology to the largest industrial machine. Indeed, the continued development has taken the consumer market by storm, with some of the most humble devices boasting computing power far in excess of the banks of computers that took man to the moon in the 1960s.
The connector industry is very mature. People have been making connectors long before semiconductors came onto the scene, and connectors have been part of every major development in the electronics industry. Unlike the younger technologies, it is rare that anything truly groundbreaking happens in the world of connectors.
