  • Materials and Process Database
  • Innovation Day
  • Project Updates
  • Upcoming technical events

Attendance is limited to government personnel and NextFlex members from Tiers 1, 2, and 3 only (multiple delegates welcome).

(The FlexTech-NBMC (FT-NBMC) Joint Tech Council meeting will end with lunch around noon. Those who are members of both FlexTech and NextFlex, or NBMC and NextFlex, should depart the FT-NBMC meeting at that time and join the working lunch served at the NextFlex Tech Council meeting.)

FRI, FEB 16 at Spyglass Room

8:00-11:00 AM: Special Session: High Performance Flexible Systems Roadmapping and Strategy

This Special Session is currently FILLED. However, if you are a TWG co-lead, please contact NextFlex immediately to discuss accommodations to attend by email or please call 1-408-797-2244.

Significant progress has been made in making simple circuits flexible with FHE. However, work remains to increase the flexibility of highly complex circuits. This special session will draw interdisciplinary input to help chart the course for high performance applications.

These will include thin silicon for more advanced devices than 8-bit microcontrollers (such as FPGAs and advanced node devices), interconnects for the high layer count and high routing density structures, and integration techniques for these devices, and, time permitting, flexible batteries.

Objective: Generate a needs and recommendations document to support designs that can benefit from FHE form factors, but require impedance matching, SI, PI, or thermal management.

Attendance is limited to government personnel and NextFlex members from Tiers 1, 2, and 3 only.

11 AM: End
