Two Ultra-thin Flexible Chips Released in China

Jul 16, 2019     Email"> PrintText Size

Thinner than hair, two ultra-thin flexible chips have been developed by Chinese researchers.

The bendable chips' bodies are both less than 25 micrometers thick, about one third to half the thickness of a human hair.

The two chips can amplify the analog signals and integrate the processor with Bluetooth wireless communication function, respectively, said Feng Xue, leader of the research and development team, as well as professor of Tsinghua University.

Flexible electronics technology can embed organic and inorganic materials on flexible and ductile substrates. The flexible chips are expected to be used in the fields of communication, digital medical service, intelligent manufacturing and the Internet of Things, according to Feng.

The two flexible chips were introduced during the second International Conference on Flexible Electronics which was held on July 13 in Hangzhou, capital of east China's Zhejiang Province. The conference attracted over 600 experts and scholars from home and abroad. (Xinhua)
