Printed polymer electronics
Abstract:Printed electronics can enable very large numbers of new microelectronic products in a cost-efficient way, such as RFID tags and smart objects. Soluble semi-conducting materials are necessary to enable a mass production process on an extremely thin, flexible film.
Results of multi-bit circuits and RFID transponder with poly-(3-hexylthiophene) as p-type semiconductor fabricated completely from roll-to-roll in mass production processes are shown. Process inspection and optimization is a key to successful development. A testing machine capable of electrically measuring kilometers of printed electronics is presented. A yield of 98.5% working polymer field effect transistors within specifications was obtained.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
