FLEX2018 Shows how 3D Printed Electronics Will Impact Our Lives

If you drive a late model car, you may be impressed by the many sensors that capture engine conditions, tire pressure, etc. and report to you. Many cars even call the factory if they need preventive maintenance. Wouldn’t it be great if we could one day show the same preventive tender loving care (TLC) to our own bodies, as our cars enjoy today – instead of experiencing emergency room visits ... »

The MEMS Supply Chain: Through the Looking Glass at IDTechEx 2015

The MEMS Supply Chain: Through the Looking Glass at IDTechEx 2015

What is the MEMS supply chain as we know it going to do, device makers and equipment suppliers both, if paper becomes the next MEMS/sensor substrate? And why are we interested? Dr. Alissa M. Fitzgerald, A.M. Fitzgerald & Associates, gave what was probably the single most talked-about presentation at the recent MEMS Executive Congress in Napa, CA. In “Emerging MEMS & Sensor Technologies t... »

The Skinny on 1st Lighten the Load Inc.

First of all – I LOVE the name of this company. For that reason alone, I was intrigued enough to find out more about it, and where it fits in the 3D space. Remember, 3D integration is not only about stacking chips and devices vertically to fit more functionality into less space, it’s about utilizing what ever space is available in the z-direction – which can mean embedding passives and activ... »
