As the entrance to the “metaverse”, the development of AR/VR is in the ascendant. According to the data from RUNTO Technology, the sales of VR/AR headsets on major online retail platforms in China were 67000 sets in the first quarter of 2023, a year-on-year annual decrease of 17%. Although the growth rate was not as expected, the top domestic brands showed better performance than in 2022. In the domestic AR market, Rayneo and Nreal, as leading brands, have a total share exceeding 70% of the total.
In the China VR market, the performance of PICO from ByteDance is also better than that of last year, ranking first in the VR market in the first quarter of 2023 with 78.9% online market share, with obvious head advantage. Although the year-on-year growth rate of VR/AR shipment volume slowed down in the first quarter of 2023, according to the prediction of the globally renowned data company IDC, the total shipment volume of AR/VR headsets will continue to grow in 2023, with a 5-year compound annual growth rate expected to reach 32.6%. With the increasing popularity of AR/VR development, the continuous upgrading and iteration of AR/VR hardware have brought new development opportunities to relevant core technology companies.
AR/VR manufacturers are in heated technical competition. Top-link has actively joint development with leading brand customers, providing customized high-speed transmission connector module for customers. As a one-stop interdisciplinary precision component and module solution provider, Top-link has accumulated rich solutions in the field of AR/VR. In particular, AR/VR products involve images or videos such as cameras, which require high-speed transmission connection technology. Top-link designs high-speed transmission connector module for AR/VR, which transmit USB3.1 Gen2 signals. The maximum transmission rate of USB3.1 Gen2 can reach 10Gb/s of theoretical bandwidth, twice the maximum transmission rate of USB3.1 Gen1. With the evolution of technology, USB3.1 Gen2 has gradually become a standard in the interface market.
When choosing electronic products, whether to support USB3.1 Gen2 has become a very important reference standard. The USB3.1 Gen2 technology is used in the high-speed transmission connector module of Top-link, which has faster data transmission and higher stability, greatly improving the experience of AR/VR users. At the same time, Top-link also has the ability to independently design and develop high-speed transmission connection product testing fixtures. We can provide customized testing molds according to customer needs, providing customers with one-stop products and services, and helping them seize the opportunity in the development of the AR/VR industry.
