Printed electronics — a low-cost additive manufacturing process — is one of the most productive emerging enabling technologies that allows integration of complex functionality. From inside a pet’s ear to a yogurt cup, from bandages to light bulbs — electronic circuitry is simply everywhere. Thanks to advances in material technologies and manufacturing processes, designers can add interactivity, connectivity, sensing, trackability, and power to virtually any item, regardless of whether it’s made of plastic, paper, glass, textiles, polymers, or metal. Printed Electronics produces thinner, lighter and more flexible circuit assemblies for production of highly integrated products.
