Presentation Summary

Printed, flexible, hybrid electronics are of significant interest for sensor systems, structural electronics and wearable devices. Printed flexible systems allow new form factors, complex shapes, and conformal devices. In particular, the inclusion of sensors in novel form factors or large areas has significant potential in areas such as environmental monitoring and chemical sensing. This talk will describe some pilot projects being pursued at PARC towards real-life deployment. Low-cost sensor systems will make it possible to broaden the scope of the products and devices that will be part of the future of the Internet of Things. The technologies required for these sensor systems are a mix of novel sensors, printing processes, conventional microchips, flexible substrates and energy harvesting power solutions.

Speaker Biography (Janos Veres)

Janos Veres leads PARC's Novel and Printed Electronics Program. His main interest is exploring 2D and 3D printing and large area processes as manufacturing techniques for electronic devices. By combining novel materials, device designs and unique deposition processes, it becomes possible to print flexible circuits, sensors, memory and hybrid electronic systems. PARC works with material makers, printing firms and consumer product companies to help them commercialize these technologies.
Janos has held R&D, manufacturing and management positions in material, printing and electronics companies including PolyPhotonix, Kodak, Merck, Avecia and Gestetner, where he developed printed circuits, specialty functional materials, OLEDs, displays, and medical devices as well as printing/coating technologies. Janos holds a Ph.D. in Solid State Electronics from Imperial College, London.
