Printed & Flexible Circuits (Oct. 17 - 23)

13 October 2021

Flexible circuits are not an innovative concept, but certain technological and market factors have combined to make the printed and flexible electronics market one that has exploded in recent years, with no signs of slowing down.

Decades of research created a deep understanding of organic and inorganic thin-film technologies, and how to implement them to replace rigid PCBs and interconnects. Driven by the popularity of personal electronics, and increasingly wearable electronics, consumers are demanding that their devices be more resilient yet adaptable to the harsh environment of daily life.

Flexible circuits are challenging the traditional form and function of electronics, and promises to make lasting improvements to consumer, medical, automotive, aerospace and industrial electronics sectors.

This revolution will not be televised.
