Flexible Hybrid Electronics: The Gateway To Manufacturing Smart Products

August 28, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Come learn about Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE), which combines the flexibility and low-cost of printed plastic film with high performance semiconductors to create a new category of electronics. With FHEs, electronics can be added to new materials – such as textiles, glass, composites, and other flexible membranes – and create conformable and stretchable smart products.

In this workshop, we will introduce you to Flexible Hybrid Electronics – a game changing technology which offers unique benefits such as flexibility, conformability, stretchability, easily customizable, with a quick turnaround and offering new opportunities. This workshop will show you how to take advantage of this great opportunity to differentiate your products and gain advantage in the marketplace.

FHEs address multiple market verticals such as Biomedical, Automotive, Fashion/Wearables, Health and Fitness, Soft Robotics and many others, creating opportunities that didn’t exist before.

The Workshop will highlight:

  • Intro to Flexible Hybrid Electronics and the NextFlex Institute
  • What are Flexible Hybrid Electronics
  • What are the applications of FHE, including wearables and Internet of Things
  • What this process flow for Flexible Hybrid Electronics is
  • How to engage with the NextFlex Institute

When: Tuesday, August 28th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.

Where: Prospect Silicon Valley, 1608 Las Plumas Ave, San Jose CA

Cost: $20

Presented by: Jens Paetau, CMTC-FHE Practice Lead at NextFlex
