Innovative process to print flexible electronic circuits
Researchers at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore have successfully printed complex electronic circuits using a common t-shirt printer. The electronic circuits are printed using unique materials in layers on top of everyday flexible materials such as plastic, aluminium foil and even paper.
Associate Professor Joseph Chang, leader of the NTU research group said their unique printing technique has made mass production of cheap disposable electronic circuits possible. “This means we can have smarter products, such as a carton that tells you exactly when the milk expires or a bandage that prompts you when it is time for a redressing” (News Item NTU 17 November 2014).
