IMPLEMENT LARGE-AREA PROCESSING FOR APPLICATIONS IN PRINTED ELECTRONICS AND FUNCTIONAL FILMS* (42 HOURS)

Implement Large Area Processing
*This is a non-WSQ module.

Printed electronics is expected to facilitate widespread flexible and lower cost electronics with new opportunities. The value proposition for large-area processing in manufacturing printed electronics and functional films is creating rapid growing markets worldwide in many areas such as smart & interactive packaging, outdoor media & advertisement, biomedical, wearable electronics, automotive, building, architectural and construction industries. Flexible hybrid electronics is an innovative process that combines the flexibility, thinness, and lightweight nature of large-area printed electronics with the processing power of semiconductors for new application in wearables, healthcare and consumer electronics. Specific knowledge, skills and know-how are required to cope with the implementation of large-area processing to capture opportunities with these emerging applications.

about the programme

Flexible hybrid electronics is an emerging manufacturing process. It needs a specific set of knowledge and skills regarding the printed electronics fundamentals, printing process and application design that are not covered in any existing relevant training courses. This course aims to bridge these gaps.

Participants will learn the concepts and applications of printed electronics technology and understand the working principles of various flexible functional films. With the guidance of industry experts in large-area process and printed electronics, participants get the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in functional film fabrication and applications, in particular for printed lighting, printed heater, printed electrode and various printed sensors, and understand the specific requirements to the flexible functional printed electronic application.

SIMTech’s printed electronic experts aim to ”transfer” their latest knowledge about the design, prototyping and fabrication of large-area flexible printed electronics to the participants to lead the emerging manufacturing industry.

Who Should Attend

This module is designed for participants in industries that are related to printing, printed circuit board assembly or from precision engineering companies. The contents are also developed for engineers or PMETs who have basic background knowledge of printing and interested in the knowledge and skills of flexible printed electronics and functional films.

Course Outline

Implement Large Area Processing_outline

For developing typically printed electronics, sheet-based printing and large-area processing are two essential skill sets for flexible functional printing, plus device design and characterisation. Application of printed electronics such as printed lighting, printed heater, printed electrode and various printed sensors will be covered in the training sessions. Fabrication of functional films is covered at the start of the course to build up the participants’ fundamental printing knowledge. Large-area printing and roll-to-roll process will be demonstrated to produce functional films. As flexible hybrid electronics is an innovative process that combines elements of the electronics industry with that of the high-precision printing industry, participants get to learn about roll-to-roll processing of hybrid printed electronics. All participants have the opportunity to participate in fabricating a flexible printed electronic prototype based on the selected application. The participants are required to plan all the steps from material selection, printing equipment set-up, doing actual printing, characterisation of functional films, packing and testing with necessary guidance from their mentors. They will print and complete the selected prototype in a cleanroom. Through SIMTech’s Learn-Practise-Implement™ (LPI™) pedagogy, which is essentially different from conventional classroom teaching, participants will gain and master the knowledge and skills of large-area processing of flexible printed electronics in an integrated manner.
