DUBLIN, Ireland, 14 Oct. 2005. Research and Markets in Dublin, Ireland, is offering a market study called Electrical & Optical Backplanes -- A Worldwide Market and Technology Review 2005-2010.

This report reviews current and forecasted demand for backplanes, emerging applications, and interconnect technologies in the global backplane industry. The report also highlights system technology roadmaps, the market structure and business opportunities for backplane manufacturers and the supply industry.

One part forecasts demand for embedded optical waveguide-based backplanes versus enhanced electrical copper based solutions.

The report offers conclusions on how the Asian market will respond to the opportunities in the backplane market.

Over the last two years the backplane industry has gone through some of the most dramatic structural and technological changes it has ever experienced, and the supply industry's structure has changed to reveal new technological opportunities, the report states.

This study will provide a clear understanding of the backplane market structure, emerging technologies, specific market and product opportunities, and strategic recommendations.

Key issues in the study include:

-- the current size and projected growth rate of the backplane market worldwide in five years;
-- regions that will drive the majority of growth;
-- system applications that will demand backplanes;
-- emerging applications that will require advanced backplane technologies;
-- how the mix of standard and proprietary backplane designs will change over the next five years;
-- new backplane technologies that will emerge as mainstream approaches;
-- copper interconnect that will extend beyond 10 gigabits per second;
-- requirements for optical backplanes; and
-- emerging opportunities for suppliers of materials, process equipment and assembly/test services.
