94 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I NOVEMBER 2020 device manufacturing and packaging innova- tion in support of its premium microbattery products based on solid-state lithium battery ("SSLB") technology. EPTE Newsletter: Hitachi Chemical Now Showa Denko E Hitachi Chemical, a consolidated subsidiary of Showa Denko, recently changed its name to Showa Denko (they will now be part of this company). Dominique Numakura details how company officials released a statement com- menting on the new name and adding that this collaboration will generate new business trends. Trackwise Implements Further Upgrading of FPC Manufacturing Operations E Trackwise, a recognised innovator of flex- ible printed circuit (FPC) technology, contin- ues to strengthen its production capability and capacity by investing in new equipment. The company has installed a highly advanced roll-to-roll direct imaging system and has also invested in a roll-to-roll flexible circuit laser drilling system. PV Nano Cell, Profactor Publish Results of Printed Embedded Passive Components E PV Nano Cell Ltd., an innovative provider of inkjet-based conductive digital printing solu- tions and producer of conductive digital inks, and PROFACTOR GmbH (Steyr, Austria), an applied production research company in the field of industrial assistive systems and addi- tive micro/nanomanufacturing, published the first results of printed embedded passive com- ponents including silver and carbon-based resistors and capacitors. Flexible Thinking: Thermal Management—Electronic Technology's Rodney Dangerfield E Thermal engineering has, unfortunately, often been treated with less respect than it deserved. Dealing with the heat generated by electron- ics was often not given full consideration until after the design was completed and proto- typed, and the problem manifests as a failure. Joe Fjelstad emphasizes why keeping devices cool is a vital objective. Flexible Circuit Technology Workshop #6: Designs, Principles, and Practices E In less than 30 minutes, learn from flex expert Joe Fjelstad about considerations when design- ing flexible circuits. Segments include topics such as flexible circuit designs, principles, and practices; design guidelines for bending, fold- ing, and dynamic movement of flexible circuits; flexible circuit singulation methods; assembly aids, and more. Flex on the Brain: The Future of Neural Interfaces E The SMTA Additive Electronics TechXchange took place virtually on October 14, with pre- sentations from a wide variety of technolo- gists involved in additive processes. One of the highlights was a presentation titled "Flexible Electronics for Neural Interfaces" by Dr. Jona- than Viventi, assistant professor of biomedical engineering at Duke University. Thinfilm Announces First Multi-Cell Solid-State Battery E Thin Film Electronics ASA—a developer of ultrathin, flexible, and safe energy storage solutions for wearable devices and connected sensors—announced significant progress in
