Connectors are still regarded as one kind of passive components in application, and the interface appearances vary according to the applications to different products and environments, so they are less independent in the interface appearance design of product, and they are frequently restricted by the target products and environments.
The research was carried out based on the methods of secondary data collection, analysis and induction, and in-depth interview, in which five experts having many years of practical experience in connector design and manufacture were interviewed, and, finally, the interview data were compiled and induced for the industry and individuals to ponder over the developing directions and responding methods of product design and manufacture in the future. To summarize the interviews, the five experts were all of the opinion that all the current developing trends of mobile phone, including the product characteristics of being light, thin, short, and compact, high-speed download packet access (HSDPA), high frequency, life cycle, low-priced mobile phones in the emerging markets, and environmental consciousness, closely influenced the design and manufacture of mobile phone connector. Therefore, the industry of mobile phone connector in Taiwan should possess thinking models and practice different from the traditional ones in order to be competent in the industry or internationally.
