50 The PCB Magazine • September 2014 reverse direction. The printed circuits also drive LED fill level indicators which were mounted and electrically connected to the control cir- cuits using an aerosol jet printed conductive epoxy. The project was funded by the Bavarian Research Foundation. Summary Printed electronics is emerging as viable and advantageous approach to manufacture a wide range of electronics components. Initially spurred on by the mobile revolution of smart- phones and tablets, PE is now being eyed as a key enabler of a new breed of ubiquitous sens- ing and monitoring devices behind the Internet of Things. While conventional manufacturing methods work well when used to produce elec- tronics on rigid 2D substrates, PE is a promising approach to address high-volume production of tightly integrated 3D electromechanical devices to reduce size, weight, and increase functional capabilities.
