Large Area Electronics

Printing electronics on thin substrates such as foil will create a revolution in the electronics industry. This will enable ultra-light and ultra-thin, flexible, easy-to-wear electronic products, lighting and signage devices, reusable and disposable sensor devices, and foldable solar panels and displays.

Roll-to-roll production processes, comparable to what's now being used in the paper printing industry, will enable these devices to be manufactured in large sizes, high quantities and at low cost. The TNO activities on Large Area Electronics are being coordinated by Holst Centre, an open innovation initiative in collaboration with Belgian research centre imec and located on High Tech Campus Eindhoven.
