  • Flexible Hybrid Electronics

    Organic thermal sensors and stacked interconnects are printed on a plastic film using the screen printer, and small Si-LSI are mounted on the same film. This hybrid sensor integrates the flexibility of organic electronics with the high functionality of Si-LSIs. Sensing the temperature of body skin and commercial goods and transmitting the measured data have been succeeded.
