Screen-printed stretchable sensors
CSEM is a privately held, R&D center established in 1984 in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. From the beginning, CSEM has been committed to both applied and order-related R&D. This bridge function between economics and science is still a core aspect of the company, and CSEM has continuously adapted its research areas to the needs of industry.

Screen printed pressure sensors consists of two flexible/stretchable polymer foils; one with interdigitated electrodes and the other one with patterned resistive paste. After fine layer thickness tuning, though thickness/resistance adjusting, foils are assembled. The interface with the external electronics is provided through the connectors suitable for overmolding. This way, hybrid integration between printed and conventional electronics is established.
