Unitech Printed Circuit Board and Dynamic Electronics have seen their PCB orders for automotive electronics and consumer device applications pick up so far in second-half 2020, with their sales gradually returning to normal levels after experiencing a lackluster first-half 2020, according to industry sources.

Unitech has regained a significant portion of rigid-flex board orders for AirPods 2 devices in second-half 2020 to bolster its revenues after losing the majority of its orders to Korean peers in the first half, but order volumes and unit prices are all lower than a year earlier, the sources said.

But the company is maintaining full capacity utilization for HDI boards thanks to strong demand for iPad and MacBook series, which have seen robust sales, necessitating HDI capacity support from many makers in Taiwan, noted the sources.

Fast take: U.S. consumer inflation muted, just don’t buy a used car

(Reuters) – U.S. consumers on balance paid only a little bit more for goods and services last month as supply chain disruptions that contributed to a bump up in inflation over the summer began to ease, a welcome respite for the millions who remain unemployed.

While that easing pressure on pinched consumers might offer a benefit to Republican President Donald Trump’s reelection prospects against Democratic challenger Joe Biden, it does come with a big “on the other hand” caveat: It is the latest sign of fading momentum in the rebound from this spring’s record-setting economic slump.

A bit of inflation typically is an indication of strengthening demand, an encouraging signal that consumers have reliable sources of income allowing them to contribute to growing
