3D printing increases memory of flexible Silicon chips 7000 times

The U. S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and American Semiconductor have combined traditional manufacturing techniques with 3D printed circuitry to produce a flexible Silicon-on-polymer chip. Besides its material qualities, the new chip has a memory more than 7,000 times larger than any comparable commercially available devices, making it suitable as a micro-controller to be integrated into other objects. The need for a flexible chip Silicon chips, found in almost every electronic device today, are often rigid and brittle. While this usually not a problem for computers and smartphones, which house the chips within a protective shell, the advent […]
