  11. 11. Strategic Emerging Industries:Opportunities for the End-User Markets New-generation Information Technology • China is particularly interested in developing the next- generation information networks, mobile communication, and the Internet. • The purpose of next generation Internet project is to gain a significant position in the future development of the Internet through the early adoption of IPv6. • The government plans to invest in R&D of the "Internet of things" and cloud computing, and develop digital and virtual technologies. Communications • China intends to build 500,000 3G stations. By the end of the 12th FYP period, this number is expected to reach 1.2 million. • Large-scale TD-LTE field trial has been conducted in several cities. Network operators are ready to implement TD-LTE and deploy it over 3G networks. Commercial trials of TD-LTE network will start in 2012. 4G network will be built from 2014 when TD-LTE is mature for commercial use. • It becomes necessary for the vendors to develop products with increased functionality to match these new digital standards and technologies.

  14. 14. Emerging Strategic Industries:Opportunities for the End-User Markets (Continued) New Energy • The renewable energy industry in 12th FYP will focus on wind power, solar photovoltaic power, and hydroelectric projects. • Meanwhile, the development of smart grid will be accelerated to adapt to the new energy projects. Fixed asset investment of smart grid is expected to be $376.7 billion in 2015. • Wind power capacity only contributed 4.6% to the total installed power capacity in China in 2010 and will grow steadily. The solar PV power is also likely to witness rapid growth in the next five years. • By the end of 2020, the renewable resource will contribute 15 percent of total energy. Wireless Communication • Wireless communication is expected to be a significant complement to the optic fiber telecommunication that is currently used in the grid power systems. • Based on the wireless technology, remote monitoring system for wind power could understand the real-time system status, rapidly inspect system fault, and improve the reliability. • The testers can be used to validate the reliability and performance of complex algorithms used in wind power technologies. Solar power manufacturers also need simpler, faster ways to perform photovoltaic device output performance tests.

  15. 15. Other Key Growing Markets Electronics Manufacturing • The applications of electronic devices is overwhelming in people’s ordinary life. Electronic products and the inner components need to undergo testing. • Market growth was also led by improvement in the semiconductor industry. Strength in the computers and semiconductor business reflected the growing demand for cell phones and smart devices. Wireless Connectivity in High-speed Railway/Automobile • 3G network is currently available in the high-speed railway system. Since the train moves through a number of provinces, it means different 3G operators will impact network coverage and therefore signal performance. • Automobile manufacturers are developing wireless technology within vehicles, as well as between vehicles. Others • Numerous multinational corporations are establishing R&D facilities in China. • The educational sector such as universities and engineering schools also continues to expand in China. This sector is price conscious and requires lower price for durable testers. 15

  23. 23. Modular Instruments in China National Instruments’ Perspective on PXI •NI is offering platforms and design tools to engineers and scientists who need to build test-and-measurement or industrial control systems in China as well as worldwide. Such tools serve broad applications, but NI does see intensive adoption in consumer electronics, automotive, and avionics industries. •NI says its software-defined modular platform can accelerate innovation in emerging industries such as green energy and next-generation telecommunications. For example, on this years PXI Technology and Application Conference (PXI TAC), Professor Xiaohui Duan from Peking University gave a keynote speech introducing a "triple play” research project based on NI PXI platform. •NI sees PXI modular instruments gaining more awareness and adoption and becoming a mainstream automated test and control platform in China. Professor Shenghe Sun, and expert in automated test and control in China, gave a keynote speech on this years PXI TAC conference and indicated PXI fits the trend of instrumentation development. 23

  25. 25. Modular Instruments in China Other Instrument and Instrument-Interconnect standards: •LXI. Many instruments now come with an LXI (LAN Extensions for Instrumentation) to replace or augment old interfaces like RS-232 and IEEE-488 GPIB. With Ethernet connectivity, LXI instruments support coordinated measurements among separate instruments dispersed over wide geographical areas. •USB. This ubiquitous interface for PCs is appearing on many instruments, and USB modules are available that convert PCs into oscilloscopes or other instruments. •AXIe (AdvancedTCA with extensions for instrumentation and test). AXIe is a relatively new standard based on the Telecom Computing Architecture carrier-grade backplane and interconnect specification. AXIe instrument image courtesy of Agilent Technologies 25
