The printed electronics engineering is a new academic field at the emerging stage.
Using a R2R (Roll-to-Roll) printing method on flexible paper, textile, and plastic film, it can manufacture various electronic devices at low cost.
This fused technology will open the gate way to completely change the semiconductor and display industries environment.
Possessing the leading technology in NT-PT printign fields, Sunchon National University (SCNU) has selected and been supporting printed electronics as a univeristy specialization field. As a fruit of this effot, printed electonics stated the WCU porgram in 2008 and extended the program to 2020 via BK21PLUS program.
※ Active collaborations of SCNU with industries realized World’s first demonstration of RFID Tag operated at 13.56Mz through 100% printing technology.
