Consumer electronics industry has always been on the avenue of accelerated growth and expansion with its categories including but not limited to Internet of Things (IoT), smartwatches, laptops, tablets, projectors, TVs, radio, fitness devices, and television displays. There has been a stiff competition in the retail territory leading to retail swings in consumer electronics which is highly prone to constant drifts due to brisk changes in consumer tastes and preferences. Though a general slowdown was witnessed in the smartphone and IoT sector with equally promising wins in the virtual reality, car segments, augmented reality sectors and AI which stimulated the businesses to tread watchfully.
The industry offers ample opportunities for personal electronic suppliers and manufacturers to harness consumer behavior and trends to emerge successfully. Smartphone market is dominated by 3 major platforms - Android, iOS and Windows and thus represent 60% of the total revenue by 2021. Furthermore, advancements in the IoT devices such as smartwatches, smart speakers, home security systems, biometric cybersecurity scanners, wireless inventory trackers, and wireless healthcare monitoring systems compatible with wireless technologies (such as 3G, 4G, 5G, and/or Wi-Fi) paves the way for rising consumer disposable income and are expected to push the demand and boost growth.
Copperpod provides Patent Monetization, Patent Litigation and Reverse Engineering services to help attorneys, individual inventors, and companies delve deeper into consumer electronics products and technology. Our electronics engineers use state-of-the-art RE techniques such as Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), Dynamic Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS), Time-of-flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (TOF SIMS), X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Atomic Force Microscope (AFM), Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD), Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES), Dual Beam Focused Ion Beam (FIB), and Ion Beam Milling to reveal the technology and materials used in fabricating a given chip - as well as the general blueprint and major component blocks inside the chip. Copperpod’s dedicated go-to technical team also performs product testing and network packet capture through packet sniffing, penetration testing and information gathering tools such as Wireshark, Fiddler, BlueRanger and PacketRanger in order to uncover hard-to-find infringement evidence.
