NOVEMBER 2020 I DESIGN007 MAGAZINE 89 provider early in the design process, often- times, they can help your engineering team bring new ideas to the table—pushing beyond existing performance standards to find a better way. The greatest performance improvements, space reductions, cost savings, and new capa- bilities are a direct result of integration ideas introduced and tested early on. To help iden- tify the right rigid-flex specifications for your application needs, flex circuit experts lean on decades of proven experience helping engi- neering teams uncover more efficient designs across a wide variety of industries, including healthcare, aerospace, defense/military, and more. In the coming years, TCO-driven strategies will continue to gain steam—joining perfor- mance and efficiency objectives atop the list of key considerations procurement teams will identify in their decision-making process. Mov-ing forward, designing innovative systems that can deliver on all three of these goals will be a central part of a winning strategy. FLEX007 Notion Systems GmbH, a leading manufacturer of indus- trial inkjet systems for functional materials and PV Nano Cell Ltd., an innovative provider of inkjet-based conductive digital printing solutions and producer of conductive digi- tal inks, announced that a non-exclusive agreement was signed between the companies. The two companies are world-leaders in their respected domains and plan to jointly go-to-market strategy to offer complete solutions including inks, printers and the print- ing process to be implemented in digital additive manu- facturing of printed electronics. This approach is aimed at simplifying and accelerating the adoption of digital printed electronics by mass-producers. One of the primary challenges of any printing solution is the development of its printing process that integrates the chemistry of the ink, printer parameters and the custom- ers' design requirements. In order to overcome this chal- lenge, the companies will work together and exchange information to optimize both the overall performance of printing and its time-to-market. The companies have been working together for years and are partners in the most prestigious European Funded projects such as the eurostars inkjetPCB that focuses on inkjet-based fabri- cation of multilayer printed circuit boards with embedded printed passive elements. Another new funded project the two companies are working on with other partners is Project Tinker that focuses on providing a new cost and resource-efficient pathway for RADAR and LIDAR sensor package fabrication with high throughput up to 250 units/min. "The new partnership will bundle forces and provide a one stop solution for customers," said Notion Systems CEO Dr. Michael Doran. "The n.jet electronics platform is already fine-tuned to work very well with PV Nano Cell's materials and provides the highest yields and outputs."
