3D electronics integration in lighting products: opportunities and challenges – Presented by Rob van Asselt, Philips Lighting Research

3D electronics integration in lighting products: opportunities and challenges – Presented by Rob van Asselt, Philips Lighting Research at the 3D Printing Electronics Conference, which takes place on Jan 24, 2017 at High Tech Campus Eindhoven in The Netherlands.

The current way of mass producing consumer electronics products poses challenges to industries like Philips Lighting, in a rapidly changing market demanding more product customization. At Philips Lighting we are exploring how flexible manufacturing offered by 3D integration of electronics can enable low volume production, faster product realization and new product designs with improved performance. Furthermore, the integration of functions will result in less parts and easier assembly, which enables local and on-demand product manufacturing. We are involved in several open innovation and EU collaboration projects to develop in parallel 3D electronics processes and products.
