Company Profile (Terepac)

Terepac logo
Terepac Corporation is a microelectronics design and manufacturing company which offers a unique, revolutionary and proprietary set of technologies which enable products to be small, thin, flexible and inexpensive; realizing the vision of pervasive electronics inherent in the Internet of Things. The process takes bare silicon wafers from state of the art foundries, divides them into chips which are barely visible, places and connects them on paper-thin substrates in micromodules with the physical format of a label, which can conform to curved surfaces and be almost unnoticeable while retaining unsurpass¬ed electrical characteristics, including low power and high reliability
