Printed Electronics with Integrated Functionality Printed by jlhd32

VIEWS: 195 PAGES: 15

If you can quickly print out the number of conductor layers, insulation layers or semiconductor layers to form electronic circuits, then compared to the traditional manufacturing process, using this technology will lower the cost of production of integrated circuits. Typically, the printing performance semiconductor means different organic materials with silicon, or even than in the silicon material used should be greater in the geometric limit. In addition, many applications will benefit from the excellent performance of low-cost flexible substrates, such as RFID tags, for display of active matrix backplane (active-matrixbackplane). Printed silicon electronics pioneer in the field of Kovio Since its inception in 2001, has been in continuous improvement of printing technology, and in July 2009 announced the successful financing of 20 million U.S. dollars. The company said it plans to invest this money into the company's RF bar code mass production.
