Panasonic Electronic Materials Presents Technical Paper at APEX 2023

Apex 2023 is the largest event in North America for the electronics manufacturing industry. This year's theme, Advance in a New Era of Electronics Manufacturing, aligns with Panasonic's technical paper presentation on an exciting new pliable, conformable circuit board material.

The paper, presented by Tomohiro Fukao, Research Manager of the Electronic Materials Division of Panasonic Corporation of North America, contrasts the history of printed circuit boards being hard and rectangular and the possibilities of soft, flexible substrates.

Panasonic has developed an extremely soft, pliable, bendable, conformable and stretchable material that can be used for wearable technologies and more. This developmental material uses a novel, high-temperature-resistant, non-silicone polymer system with a copper-clad laminate configuration suitable for use in traditional SMT processes.
