Integrating Conventional Silicon in Flexible Electronics

Thursday, July 11
South Hall, Moscone Center



            Session Partner:  



Printed electronics have made great progress in materials and processing technologies for flexible, conformable and robust applications such as wearable biomedical sensors and imagers, displays, consumer packaging, and toxic and structural sensors. Some of the flexible electronics systems incorporate both printed electronics and silicon technology.  Various techniques are available for creating very thin silicon chips that can be incorporated in flexible systems. Finding ways to cost effectively and reliably integrate more conventional processors or MEMS sensors or high speed RF communications with printed/flexible electronics systems may open the way to wider applications. Where do printed/flexible electronics systems offer the best solutions? Where could integrating traditional silicon make most sense for cost or performance? What are the remaining challenges and promising solutions for process integration, handling, packaging, integrating and testing hybrid silicon/flexible approaches?
