Standardization in printed and flexible electronics: why it is important and how to contribute to it

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 Round Table 2023 gives an overview of the ongoing standardisation activities and helps to find out what this means for manufacturers and users. The Round Table will also give visitors the opportunity to ask questions and talk to representatives from leading organisations.

The panelists are:

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