Molex, LLC, a leading global manufacturer of electronic solutions, today announced Mark Litecky will present at the SGIA Printed Electronics Symposium on November 4 from 11:15 a.m. to noon, focusing on the growing importance of printed electronics sensor systems and ways to create value-added products. The Symposium is part of the SGIA Expo, to be held November 4 – 6 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The Expo covers a range of applications for specialty printing and imaging technology.
“There have been major advances in a diverse set of technologies—including wireless communication, energy harvesting and ultra-low-power microcontrollers—that are helping to create new sensor systems,” said Mark Litecky, printed electronics marketing manager, Molex. “Applications for those new sensor systems range from wearable electronics for health and fitness monitoring to industrial sensor networks aimed at improving plant efficiency to ‘smart labels’ for consumer goods.”
In his presentation, Litecky will discuss the importance of developing cost-effective means of manufacturing sensor systems while simultaneously improving performance, especially as it relates to form factor. The presentation will address design considerations for sensor systems, sensor system integration and how printed electronics and flexible hybrid electronics manufacturing can be used to optimize product design.
