Printed Electronics incorporate the deposition of a printable material that delivers an active or passive functionality beyond traditional graphics media. The resulting product will have unique fit, form and function with possible component layers to control conductivity, resistivity, insulating properties, fluid dynamics, or chemical processes. Functional printing enables the benefits of printed electronics. Printed Electronics deliver the scale & economics of printing, the function of electrical/electronics all within unique form factors: thin, laminar & flexible. GSI’s Printed Electronics division includes engineering support to work closely with our customers from the concept stage through design, engineering, material evaluation and testing. Our stage gate process then drives prototyping and final validation processes to assure that our products meet our customers’ unique requirements.
