FLEX Conference 2023 to Spotlight Flexible Hybrid Electronics, PE, Advanced Packaging

Reading time ( words)

The FLEX Conference will gather industry experts July 11-13, 2023, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco for keynotes, panel discussions, technical sessions and product-based demonstrations highlighting the latest innovations in flexible hybrid electronics (FHE), printed electronics and advanced packaging including heterogeneous integration. Hosted by SEMI, FLEX is now part of SEMICON West, North America’s premier microelectronics exhibition and conference that unites players across the entire electronics manufacturing and design supply chain. Registration for both events is open.

Themed Intelligently Flexible, FLEX Conference 2023 will attract global industry professionals from more than 150 companies, R&D labs, and government agencies as the event focuses on equipment, processes, materials and applications driving the latest FHE technology breakthroughs. FLEX will also showcase innovations emerging from public-private partnerships formed by SEMI Technology Communities SEMI-FlexTech, SEMI-NBMC (Nano-Bio Materials Consortium) and SEMI-NextFlex.

“FLEX showcases advancements in next-generation electronics packaging accelerating industry growth,” said Melissa Grupen-Shemansky, CTO and Vice President of Technology Communities at SEMI. “Companies pushing the boundaries of heterogeneous integration will join FlexTech, NBMC and NextFlex innovators as they present cutting-edge research and development to advance industry technical knowledge through papers, posters and product information.”

“FLEX is a leading forum for networking with colleagues passionate about flexible hybrid electronics,” said Robert Praino, Chief Innovation Officer and Co-Founder of Chasm Advanced Materials Inc. and chairman of the FLEX Executive Planning Committee. “We’ve combined compelling industry topics with abundant deep dives into areas of common interest for learning across the ecosystem. The FLEX executive committee has worked to ensure rich technical content, consistent with the event’s tradition over the past 20-plus years, that promises to shed new light on business and innovation opportunities ahead.”

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

The captive shop used to be the rule, not the exception. Until outsourcing caught on, that is. North American captive shops went the way of the dodo bird, and the PCB market hasn’t been the same since. Even R&D went out the window, or offshore, if you want to be technical about it. But Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL) is something of a wild card. The company recently opened a new captive facility in Idaho, and the industry is paying close attention.

The Printed Electronics Roundtable, Part 3

10/30/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
We recently conducted a roundtable with a team of printed electronic circuit experts from companies that run the gamut: John Lee and Kevin Miller of Insulectro, Mike Wagner of Butler Technologies, Tom Bianchi of Eastprint, and John Voultos of Sheldahl Flexible Technologies. In this third and final installment of the roundtable, these experts discuss some of the differences and similarities between PEC and traditional PCB processes, the future of printed electronic circuits, and why the best way to learn about this technology is through networking with veterans of this segment who are eager to share their expertise with the next generation.
