Presentation Summary

This presentation will review the marketspace for wearables besides demonstrating the significance of Printed Electronics (PE) in wearables. We will discuss the various challenges that PE needs to address in order to become ubiquitous in the field of wearables. Highlights of the work at NovaCentrix to develop inks that are tailored towards wearables and processing conditions to achieve best performance of the inks will be discussed. The presentation will wrap up by providing several examples of commercial applications that are feasible with the use of printed electronics for wearable applications.
