Hybrid printed electronics on 3D objects – Presented by Mohammad Mashayekhi, Fundació Eurecat

Hybrid printed electronics on 3D objects – Presented by Mohammad Mashayekhi, Fundació Eurecat at the 3D Printing Electronics Conference, which takes place on Jan 23, 2018 at High Tech Campus Eindhoven in The Netherlands.

Hybrid printed electronics technology has shown the potential to combine compact high-performance circuits over all type of materials, from rigid metals to lightweight materials, composites polymers, and textile or elastic substrates. Has been attracting major attention with the dawn of Internet of Things, as an enabler to embed autonomous active circuits on portable objects with privacy labels, luminesce elements, biocompatible energy storage with printed batteries on papers, photovoltaic devices, optoelectronic, sensing devices, and NFC communication tags. Our recent work focus two main approaches for preparing 3D printed electronics: printing via ultrasonic microspraycoating and thermoforming printed circuits on foils.
