Highly Conductive Conformal Circuitry for Wearable and Implantable Medical Devices with Printed Electronics
Printed conformal circuitry on three-dimensional objects is enabling for many applications, but with regards to wearable and implantable medical devices especially so. As medical device packing density requirements for electronics packaging continues to constrict designers, a search for new and innovative means to transmit power and signals as well as sense or even transmit data will be needed. Aerosol Jet, with its unique ability to directly write onto complex non-planar substrates with a wide array of material sets, is enabling medical device companies to push the envelope with regards to packaging density and even enabling new designs not previously possible with a flexible printed circuit board or FPC's. A comprehensive summary of the materials and tools available within the Aerosol Jet products to enable these applications will be covered as well as some general market applications.
