Presentation Summary

TactoTek Injection Molded Structural Electronics (IMSE™) is a solution that combines in-mold labeling and surface decoration, printed electronics (circuitry, sensors, and antennas) and discrete electronic components (LEDs, ICs, etc.) inside of 3D plastic structures, thus changing the 100 years old picture of electronics as "components in a box" into thin, light and durable 3D smart plastic surfaces.
Together with multiple representative use-cases in different fields, we provide details on the mechanical, electrical, and optical design techniques and considerations for a specific use case: a seamless and elegant IMSE™ automotive overhead control panel (OHCP).
