Roll-To-Roll Printed Electronics
Abstract:The fabrication of roll-to-roll printed electronics allows the mass production of microelectronic products in a cost-efficient way. Soluble semiconducting materials, an adjustment of existing printing processes and an adapted chip design pave the way for new products, such as flexible and transparent conductive films and printed “radio frequency identification” (RFID) tags.
A high resolution roll-to-roll production process was developed to achieve very small structure sizes down to 10μm on large areas with production speeds exceeding 30m/min. Two applications of printed electronics are presented: Transparent conductive films were realized by producing finely structured thin metal tracks on flexible substrates. Printed Manchester-encoded circuits and 13.56MHz RFID transponders were fabricated, which are based on the p-type semiconductor poly-(3-hexylthiophene).

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.
