In the past, manufacturers did not need too high requirements for product precision, processing efficiency, etc., as they would choose directly some less stable automated design schemes that would have to be adjusted every half month or a month. Now, with greater automation, processors can no longer tolerate debugging or even stopping, so more customers are starting to pursue highend EOAT, which is the market.
