At IMB-CNM we have been working to become a new prop in the printed electronic field, building a new laboratory to adapt the coming interest in the realization of low-cost, flexible and large area electronic systems based on additive printed technologies.

In our lab we can find several equipment that let us achieve all steps processes needed, like screen-printing tech., substrate treatments, curing tools among others, but for sure the core equipment of our new “Printed-µE Lab” is the CERADROP X-Series printer, in order to fabricate all-inkjet “Organic Thin Film Transistor” devices and circuits; one of the main research lines at ICAS group.

We will be able to cope with a large range of different application domains in a versatile way and we expect to develop a complete printed-micro-electronics technology either full-inkjet or combined with photolithographic clean-room processes, but on flexible substrates to allow circuits’ development and its hybridization with other technologies.

The Printed-µE Lab has been contributed by several research groups (SPEED, GAB and ICAS) from IMB-CNM and also the CEPHIS group from UAB. The lab is mainly used by the above mentioned R&D groups, but it is open at cost for self-services on selected equipment or for services on demand over complex equipment.
