Printed Electronics for Flexible Applications
Abstract:The application of roll-to-roll printing processes for the fabrication of polymer electronics on flexible films enables the mass production of low-cost electronic circuits and components. Being produced by the successive application of thin layered functional structures on flexible polyester film, the products end up being thin and flexible themselves.
Example applications are discussed, all manufactured in roll-to-roll printing processes. A 13.56 MHz radio frequency rectifier was combined with an electrochromic display into a “smart object” that reveals the display information when brought into an electromagnetic field of an activator unit. Transparent conductive films on flexible substrates were realized by a high resolution roll-to-roll production process with structure sizes down to 10μm. They are suitable to replace indium tin oxide in applications such as touch screen displays.

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.
