TactoTek, a leading manufacturer of 3D injection molded structural electronics (IMSE) solutions has announced that it will join Linear Technology Corporation, a global designer and manufacturer of high performance analog integrated circuits and systems, to exhibit at the upcoming electronica conference, 8-11 November in Munich, Germany, stand A4.524.
“We work with partners to optimise each element encapsulated within our smart structures and how they work together as an integrated solution. There are several dimensions along which silicon components can be optimised for IMSE technology, and Linear is very proactive in pursuing those opportunities; we are relying on their components in several of our designs,” stated Antti Keränen, CTO and co-founder at TactoTek.
TactoTek’s solutions can integrate printed electronics, such as circuitry, touch sensors and antennas, and electronic components, such as LEDs, passive electronics and ICs, into light, 3D injection molded plastics as thin as 2mm. By incorporating circuitry and electronics directly into plastic structures, TactoTek enables brands to design innovative form factors and consolidate electronics into a single 3D structure.
According to David Quarles, vice president, international sales at Linear Technology, “TactoTek has proven their ability to quickly transform their customers’ traditional electronics designs into mass producible IMSE parts. This market opportunity is growing very fast, and Linear Technology is investing to secure a leadership position.”
