Printed Electronics Laboratory

The Printed Electronics Laboratory at the IMB-CNM meets the needs of the center regarding emerging flexible, additive, low-cost and environmentally friendly technologies. For this reason, the laboratory facilities have the necessary equipment and services to allow the development of printed devices and systems using technologies such as inkjet, screen printed, digital dispensing...

We can deal with a wide range of different application domains in a versatile way and we develop a complete printed microelectronics technology, or combined with clean room photolithographic processes, on flexible or rigid substrates to create circuits and their 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 institute groups, but it is open at cost for self-services on selected equipment or for services on demand over complex equipment.
