Our main goal is to propose methodologies & tools for designing and printing electronic devices using inkjet printing technology. Printed-electronics emerging technologies are far from being mature enough; thus, lots of efforts have to be done to reach stable working technologies. In these sense current developments requires in depth knowledge about related inkjet printing machinery, functional inks, substrates and their interactions.
In this work we discuss the benefit of developing fabrication technology and a design methodology together with a set of tools for building reliable and precise inkjet printed flexible and organic systems. Different printed devices and test structures has been studied and analyzed. Printed passive and active components are crucial for the development of low cost, flexible and printed systems.
Regarding the design methodology and related flows and tools we have also studied and defined how to move the well-known Technology & Design Kit (TDK) concept from silicon based to printed based microelectronics. Once the design flow has been identified we are selecting CAD tools and developing the TDK concept. Specific backend tools to transfer the design resulting drawings or layouts into the specific technology set (printer+inks+substrates) have been developed to make specific technology compensations and adjustments.
