How does Compo-SiL® help in making FHE applications easier?
FHE is an emerging innovative technology combining both conventional silicone electronics and printed electronics where it requires flexible and printed electronics for large scale production and silicon ICs for communication purposes. This combination is going to generate vast application areas in wearable electronics, health care monitoring, medical sensing, roll able displays, and internet of things (IoT). To realize this integration of printed electronics together with silicone ICs, there is a need of flexible, sustainable, biocompatible material and substrate for printing to make the device flexible, stretchable and conformable with unprecedented design of freedom.
As silicone substrates have received great attention for both the industrial and academic communities and constant innovations are in progress for the integration with electronic devices. However, these substrates have their own limitations related to roll-to-roll process, manufacturing capability, surface and interfacial properties.
Following an extensive research and innovative patented technology, General Silicones has developed successfully Compo-SiL® substrate: a modified layer on silicone that provides a dual solution for printability and laminability at once. Diverse application areas make Compo-SiL® a great material of choice for FHE.
