The Flexible Electronics Committee under the SEMI-FlexTech was setup and held the kick-off meeting on October 27 at the Suzhou Institute of Nanotech and Nanobionics. Professor CUI Zheng, the PERC’s Director, was elected as the Committee’s first Chairman.
SEMI is the world largest semiconductor industry association. SEMICON events are held all over the world including the SEMICON China which takes place in Shanghai every March. FlexTech, which was formed 18 years ago as an academic and industry alliance to promote flexible technology in USA, has become a SEMI Strategic Association Partner since 2015. SEMI-FlexTech is devoted to fostering the growth, profitability and success of the flexible and printed electronics supply chain.
Flexible, hybrid and printed electronics (FHE) are penetrating into a wide range of products including components in today's cell phones, human and health performance tools, security tags, sensor componentry in cars and airplanes, agricultural and environmental sensors, strain gauges in bridges and equipment, just to name a few. Flexible electronic technology also intersects semiconductors, packaging, testing, materials, chemical, printed circuit boards, and display industries – for a total market size of one trillion yuan, and boosting the transformation of traditional industries in China.
The SEMI China Flexible Electronics Committee will serve as an important tie between China and the global flexible hybrid and printed electronics industry.
