Flex Europe - Forum be-flexible

GET STARTED WITH FLEXIBLE HYBRID ELECTRONICS
15 OCT 2019 MUNICH, GERMANY

The combination of state-of-the-art semiconductor devices and upcoming manufacturing technologies for cost effective processing of flexible film substrates has paved the way to a large variety of new applications in the emerging Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE).

Integration of sensors, Integrated Circuits (IC), displays, antennas and communication devices on film substrates enable extremely thin and bendable form factors where existing board level technologies fall short. Key enabling technologies are fabrication of high-performance wiring patterns, integration of ultra-thin bare dies/components and ongoing advancements in roll-to-roll processing of film substrates.

Fraunhofer EMFT and SEMI Europe invite you to a special partnering event on current technologies and market opportunities in the field of Flexible Hybrid Electronics. Presentations and discussions will target the following topics:

  • Application scenarios for ultra-thin and flexible hybrid electronics
  • Potential market drivers and predictable obstacles
  • Existing and upcoming manufacturing sites in Europe
  • Technological requirements and missing blocks until today
  • Benefits of setting-up a shared pilot line for FHE product ideas in Europe
