This talk introduces the main elements in a sensor system, options for low-power wireless communication in flexible electronics, and the impact of component selection on system performance. It also covers how device architectures can exploit opportunities for flexible printed hybrid electronics, including tradeoffs between functionality, form factor, and power.
Dr. Cole is a Systems Engineer at Molex based in Savage, MN. His work involves collaborating with customers to develop printed electronic products from concept through prototype and up to pilot production. These efforts involve evaluating and applying new technologies towards flexible electronic applications. He holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Minnesota where he published six papers on additive manufacturing processes using inorganic micro and nanomaterials to bridge length scales from <100nm to >100um.
