NextFlex’s Technology Hub Complies With FDA and ITAR Standards for Manufacturing of Medical Devices
Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE) combine the flexibility and low cost of printed plastic film substrates with the performance of semiconductor devices to create a new category of electronics that can bend, stretch, and conform to any shape.
With this approach, there are no rigid printed circuit boards or chip packages, no high-temperature solder processes, and yet, no compromises in system performance.
Not only can FHE systems replace rigid systems in current applications, they can also enable applications that do not currently exist, such as smart bandages for wound monitoring and treatment, electronics that conform to curved surfaces on aircraft or vehicles, and flexible electronics for robotic applications.
In addition to its ongoing collaborative programs with members, NextFlex is developing the flexible hybrid electronics manufacturing ecosystem with system and component manufacturers and designers, product developers, and materials and equipment providers.
