Aerosol Jet Printing for 3D Printed Electronics to be Highlighted
Albuquerque, New Mexico. 5 May 2015: Optomec, a leading global supplier of production grade additive manufacturing systems for 3D printed metals and printed electronics, announced today that Mike O’Reilly, Director- Aerosol Jet Product Management, will present at the iMAPS 2015 Conference and Expo on May 5, 2015 in Boxborough, Massachusetts. This annual gathering is the largest New England Symposium dedicated to Microelectronics and Packaging.
Mr. O’Reilly’s presentation is titled “3D Printed Electronics -Functionalizing Smart Devices which are Empowering the Industrial Internet of Things”. In his presentation, Mr. O’Reilly will discuss how Optomec Aerosol Jet technology is utilized for high volume printing of conformal sensors and antennas directly onto preformed 3D structures. Currently there are over 50 Billion connected industrial and mobile Smart Devices installed worldwide with annual growth predicted at >13 Billon new units per year. Connecting these devices together requires the widespread use of sensors for data capture and antennas for data communication, both of which are fundamental building blocks for the Internet of Things. Sensors are finding their way into every aspect of the industrial sector be it low cost medical diagnostic devices or high value aerospace and power generation components. Similarly, the number of antenna finding their way into and onto mobile and land based devices are increasing at a rapid rate. Printing sensors and antennas is environmentally friendly and lowers manufacturing costs which are a key industry drivers.
IMAPS NE Chapter hosts a variety of technical events including The Annual New England Symposium & Exhibition, and Chapter Technical Meetings. The annual Symposium & Expo is widely regarded as the largest and most prestigious regional microelectronics symposium held anywhere. The Chapter Technical Meetings feature preeminent presentations of the ongoing work in the industry worldwide, and enable members to discuss emerging technologies, career issues and market developments.
