LOPEC Round Table

Standardization in printed and flexible electronics: why do they matter and how to get involved

Organisations such as the IEC, SEMI and IPC play a key role in standardisation in the electronics industry, for whose further development and success standards are fundamental.

Why are standards so important in flexible and printed electronics and what does it take to develop them?

What do companies gain from participating in standardisation and what risks do they run if they do not?

Where does standardisation in flexible and printed electronics stand globally and where is it heading?

The LOPEC 2023 Round Table provided an overview of the ongoing standardisation activities and what they mean for manufacturers and users. The Round Table also gave visitors the opportunity to ask questions and talk to representatives from leading organisations.

The panelists 2023 were:

  • Dr. Gity Samadi, Director of R&D programs, SEMI (US)
  • Dr. Andreas Willert, Deputy Head of Department Printed Functionalities, Fraunhofer Institut ENAS / Chair TC 119 (DE)
  • Francisco Fourcade, Electronics Technology Standards Manager – Europe, IPC International, Inc. (US)
  • The event was moderated by Giovanni Nisato, CEO & Founder, Innovation Horizons GmbH (CH).
