Passive Components for Printed Electronics

Reference number
Coordinator Linköpings universitet - Institutionen för teknik och naturvetenskap
Funding from Vinnova SEK 967 553
Project duration November 2014 - October 2015
Status Completed
Venture The strategic innovation programme Electronic Components and Systems:

Purpose and goal

The project aim has been research and development with the goal of identifying new or improved materials and production methods för efficient printed capacitive elements. The primary goal a printed capacitor with capacity to be incorporated into printed charge pump circuits has been met through a combination of printed electrodes and a printed dielectric material with a high relative dielectric constant.

Results and expected effects

- The project has resulted in strengthened collaboration between three of the most important players within printed electronics in the region (LiU, Acreo Swedish ICT and Thin Film Electronics). - The project has produced printable capacitors, characterized in terms of electronic properties, humidity dependence and long term stability - A strategy for integration of the capacitors into printed temperature sensor labels has been worked out.

Approach and implementation

Overall, the project plan was relatively straight forward with a handful of overlapping phases (specification, materials survey, test prints, characterization, evaluation). This order was easy to follow and also could be adapted to accommodate some improvisation when a new and interesting material became available for tests in a relatively late stage of the project. Follo-up and planning occurred at project meetings with regular intervals.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
