Presentation Summary

From Wearables to IoT, emerging high-growth applications are challenging the typically-rigid form factors of traditional electronics. As more designers explore adding enhanced functionality to their products, there is a need for electronics to be designed for new shapes and with improved flexibility. This in turn requires utilizing new substrates, conductive materials, and fabrication technologies. This discussion will highlight examples of current state-of-the-art conductive inks along with the use of photonic curing to create high-performance electronics which are printed on flexible and low-cost materials.
