Brewer Science expands printed electronics service capabilities for growing market
Brewer Science, Inc. (Rolla, Missouri) announced the expansion of its printed electronics programme to incorporate service capabilities. These new services are categorised into three major core competencies: printing, electronics and software The new offerings is expected to enable customers to take full advantage of BSI’s core competencies and expertise in printed electronics sensor systems for a variety of applications.
Printing services: BSI has a wide range of printing capabilities for flexible-hybrid electronics (FHE) and other printing needs. Its state-of-the-art equipment can accommodate both screen printing and spray coating. Additionally, the company can provide multilayer, front and back printing services with optical layer alignment for a variety of substrates and inks.
Electronics services: As the FHE market grows and enables unique applications, the ability to produce these electronic components can be challenging. BSI has partnered with customers to provide solutions for both FHE and traditional printed circuit boards (PCBs). These turn-key, integrated FHE solutions services include flexible circuit board design, layout, manufacturing, communications, firmware, and population; laser cutting and engraving; data transport and storage; device testing and consulting.
Software and other services: Since Brewer Science was founded in 1981, it has focused on developing and delivering services and materials in the semiconductor industry. Having excelled in this capacity for nearly four decades, BSI has developed a large number of ancillary capabilities that have previously been solely focused on internal use. As of today, these capabilities are now available to customers, and include computer-aided design (CAD) schematics capture, PCB layout, laser cutting and engraving, and data transport and analysis.
“As a company, we’ve built much of our strength and reputation on innovation,” said Dan Brewer, executive director of emerging technology at Brewer Science. “Printed electronics is the latest arena in which we are applying our innovation leadership to greatly impact where technology is going and how it can benefit people from all walks of life.”
