A huge revolution is emerging in the format and manufacturing process of electronic devices including displays brought on by the use of plastic substrates and printing technology. Flexible substrates enable large displays that can be freely bent, lightweight, and easily transported, as a result. In addition, the new technology has the potential of achieving various new devices such as e-paper, a new display medium, which epitomizes the advantage of hard copy paper; solar cells which are 1/10 the weight; sensors that can be completely embedded in floors and personal clothing.This report analyzes the latest trends in the technology and materials surrounding the manufacturing process of flexible electronic devices, with the above exciting breakthrough features.A coil wiring is first formed on this film, by either etching a metallic foil (to obtain Cu or Au wiring) or by printing using conductive ink, depending on the requirements. Figure 3-8-3 shows schematic diagrams of typical systems used for forminganbsp;...
