Clemson University

HQ Country
United States
The Sonoco Institute at Clemson University has a major emphasis on applied research in Printed Electronics. A primary part of our mission is the development of Intelligent Packaging, which depends heavily on printed electronics. Utilizing a cross disciplinary approach, the focus is on the commercial optimization and deposition of advanced materials on flexible substrates. With approximately 10,000 square feet devoted to Printed Electronics, the institute features a state of the art modular platform press (flexo, gravure & rotary screen), and a host of other equipment. Members of the faculty and staff have been involved in printed electronics for a decade. Printed electronics in packaging is a natural fit for Clemson because of the world-class expertise in roll-to-roll processes, advances in materials research, high quality engineering and science programs, and thorough knowledge of the packaging requirements and test procedures.

90% of heavy industrial EVs using regenerative braking by 2024

Energy harvesting is increasingly used in the tiniest electronic components right up to multiple KW lift and swingarm braking on huge construction vehicles where 1.5 KW thermoelectric harvesting is planned next. However, electrodynamics and photovoltaics are most popular so far, increasingly in combination, and application in vehicles is of increasing importance.
