Thin-film flexible electronics

Introduction

We develop innovative thin-film flexible electronics that are inexpensive to produce in large quantities. These can be seamlessly attached to a variety of objects such as bottles, patches, clothes, food, packages, machines and cars. Flexible electronics open up a range of new applications in the Internet-of-Things domain. We help you select the technology best-suited to your specific product. 

Here at imec, we combine our unique, advanced manufacturing facilities with a history of excellence in a broad range of thin-film electronics technologies to offer you custom development, design, prototyping and sheet-to-sheet production.
