Flexible electronics provide completely new possibilities in terms of form factors, which set the course for highly innovative and flexible product design. The Fraunhofer EMFT pilot line with reel-to-reel lithography, laser structuring, printing, vacuum-based techniques and system integration enables cost-effective processing for the development of electronic systems that are simultaneously thin, flexible and large-area.
Neuromorphic computing refers to the complex nerve network of the brain. Integrated memory technologies and innovative concepts for analog and digital circuits aim at drastically reducing the energy hunger of the high-performance chips required for this purpose.
The LEO project combines competencies such as fine line metallization, reel-to-reel processing and thin-chip integration in foils - and aims for making classic processes in printed circuit board manufacturing more cost-effective as well as environmentally friendly and resource-saving in the long term.
