Applied printed electronics research
At Holst Centre we develop, innovate and connect. We are an independent research and innovation centre, jointly operated by imec and TNO. We develop technology that responds to the global societal challenges of tomorrow and contributes to a healthier and more sustainable world. Our innovations are aimed at improving the vitality and wellbeing of people, and ensuring sustainable environments. We strengthen the economic power of our industry partners by developing world class, breakthrough technology solutions that they can bring to their markets. To help solve global challenges, we connect the Dutch Brainport region with a global ecosystem of industry partners and academia, enabling them to take advantage of each other's profound expertise.
TNO at Holst Centre's core expertise is flexible electronics: We develop applications using printed electronics and invent new printing technologies. At Semicon we showcase our ability to print 3-dimensional micro-electronics by combining stereolithography of the structural material with high resolution conductive tracks and pick&place of (bare) silicon components. A potential application is pressure-less sensor encapsulation.
