Press release from the issuing company

Craig Armiento discusses opportunities in the government defense industry

Fairfax, Virginia - The 2015 SGIA Printed Electronics Symposium (Atlanta, November 3–4) is just two months away, where industry leaders will share new perspectives about the niche market of printed electronics — and this year’s Symposium Keynote is sure to impress. 

Craig Armiento from the University of Massachusetts Lowell is the Director of the Printed Electronics Research Collaborative, as well as the Co-Director of the Raytheon-UMass Lowell Research Institute. On November 3, he will explore the rapidly growing interest in exploiting additive concepts for the production of electronics, as well as how the university is working with industry partners and the government to build out the supply chain for the printed electronics community. 

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to talk to the printing community at the SGIA Printed Electronics Symposium,” said Armiento. “The additive manufacturing revolution has arrived, and it will change the form factor from today’s rigid circuit boards to electronics that are flexible, conformal, wearable and integrated into 3D objects. Printing electronically functional inks on non-conventional materials will expand the reach of electronics, as well as impact the paper, plastics and textile industries.”

Additionally, Armiento will outline the technical challenges faced when transforming rigid electronic materials, components and systems into flexible form factors. Further, it will touch on the opportunities to reduce design cycle time, shifting processes from time-consuming, mask-driven approaches to CAD-driven production methods. 

Register now* for the 2015 SGIA Printed Electronics Symposium to discover how to incorporate this new market opportunity into your business.
