11/26/2013 University of Illinois researchers have developed a way to heal gaps in wires too small for even the world’s tiniest soldering iron.
11/07/2013 The display industry has developed towards in realizing large-screen and high quality image so far. But in the future, the development directions would go toward the reasonably priced flexible displays.
09/26/2013 Fujifilm and imec have developed a new photoresist technology for organic semiconductors that enables the realization of submicron patterns.
09/24/2013 A better understanding of the conductive properties of flexible semiconductors will aid in the development of bendable electronics.
09/11/2013 Following Samsung’s introduction of the first flexible organic light-emitting diode (OLED) products this year, demand for these elastic displays is expected to grow by more than a factor of four next year, with sales reaching nearly $100 million in 2014.
09/10/2013 Electronic devices with touchscreens are ubiquitous, and one key piece of technology makes them possible: transparent conductors. However, the cost and the physical limitations of the material these conductors are usually made of are hampering progress toward flexible touchscreen devices.
After experiencing runaway growth in recent years, the OLED display market is gearing up to make another big leap.
This paper provides an introduction to UV LED curing and the many benefits UV LED curing provides for bonding and coating applications in the electronics industry. Product manufacturers, machine builders, and chemistry formulators will gain an understanding of the benefits and how to apply UV LED curing in manufacturing processes. Included are specific examples of how manufacturers are using UV LED to make touch screens, mobile phones, micro speakers, and hard disk drives.April 03, 2014Sponsored by Phoseon Technology
Electronic systems have revolutionized our lives. We use
them in nearly all of our daily activities, for communication,
computing, navigation, entertainment, payment processing,
and more. They are the workhorses in many medical,
transportation, aerospace, and military systems, performing
functions such as automated control, data analysis, and
pattern recognition.February 10, 2014Sponsored by Master Bond, Inc.,

April 30 at 2:00 p.m. ET. Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), such as actuators, sensors and resonators, rely on the interactions between multiple physical effects. In this webinar, we will show how a multiphysics simulation approach allows you to combine electrical, thermal and structural effects accurately in order to design reliable and high-performance MEMS devices.
May 2014 (date and time TBD) MEMS have quite different process and material requirements compared to mainstream microprocessor and memory types of devices. This webcast will explore the latest trends in MEMS devices – including sensor fusion, biosensors, energy harvesting – new manufacturing challenges and potential equipment and materials solutions to those challenges.
May 2014 (date and time TBD) Advanced packages rely on high-performance materials – die-attach film, solder bumps, conductive adhesive, underfill, TIM – to ensure reliability, fine-pitch interconnect, thermal management, and chip performance are optimized. Learn about the latest assembly materials and how they can improve the package, speed packaging throughput, and even lower packaging costs in the webcast.
