FLEX Conference 2022 to Highlight Latest Flexible Hybrid Electronics Innovations

Reading time ( words)

FLEX Conference will gather industry experts July 11-14, 2022, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco for keynotes, panel discussions, technical sessions and product-based demonstrations highlighting the latest innovations in flexible and printed electronics. The event will co-locate with SEMICON West Hybrid, 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 Electronics in Motion, FLEX Conference 2022 will focus on equipment, processes, materials and applications driving the latest flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) technology breakthroughs. The event 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 Conference has consistently helped turn great ideas into game-changing applications for smart transportation, buildings and infrastructure; equipment sensorization; wearable and conformable medical devices; and more,” said Dr. Melissa Grupen-Shemansky, SEMI CTO and vice president of SEMI Technology Communities. “We are excited to co-locate FLEX with SEMICON West Hybrid to advance the integration of traditional rigid electronics with flexible electronics to improve the way the world works and lives.”

Advances in sustainability across both industries will come into focus at the Global Sustainability Summit at SEMICON West Hybrid and FLEX as flexible electronics combine new levels of processing and sensing capability with improved power usage to make the devices more eco-friendly.

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

The youngsters are back in school, and we’re all back to work. The water is back on for most of us in Atlanta; when temps dropped down to 8 degrees Fahrenheit, our pipes started bursting left and right. After a Christmas dinner with no water, I have a new appreciation for H2O. It’s been a busy week, and we published a variety of articles, columns, and news items. In this week’s top five, we have news about the market in Southeast Asia, a look at what the CHIPS Act really entails, a deep dive into CMMC, and a peek at how printed electronics developers are using flexible circuit concepts to facilitate PEC. We also say goodbye to a Top Gun PCB designer who left us way too soon.

We’re still not officially into summer yet, but Atlanta is bringing the heat, baby! It’s hit 97 degrees a few times this week, and I now have a fan aimed right at my face. At least it’s nice and humid too. I’m glad I don’t wear make-up. And it’s been a hot week in the circuit board community. This week, Eltek reported a fire at a board shop in Israel, and Flex committed to building a 145,000-square-foor facility in Jalisco, Mexico to serve the electric and autonomous vehicle segment.

Additive Manufacturing Requires Additive Design Techniques
