Printed Hybrid Logic Circuits


Veres, J. Printed Hybrid Logic Circuits. Printed Electronics Europe 2015.


Printing electronics circuits is possible not only with functional materials but also with inks containing microchips. New levels of complexity become accessible and printing also creates new openings for the progress of electronics itself. Over the last 50 years silicon microelectronics advanced through shrinking device dimensions and packing more and more functionality into tiny volumes. Printing opens up new ways of scaling electronics that are “More than Moore”. New form factors, complex shapes, conformal devices and distributed systems become possible. Printed, hybrid electronics systems are of significant interest for sensor systems, structural electronics and wearable devices. The additive nature of printing is an important enabler not only for rapid, on-demand fabrication but also to make use of materials efficiently.
