 2nd EIPC Workshop on PCB Bio MEMs, May 31st 2017

Evening workshop May 31st, on PCB based BioMEMs prototypes , Lab-on-Chip technology, Lab-on-PCB technology and PCB BioMEMs fabrication.

What is microfluidics? Doing chemistry on a tiny scale to speed up reactions, save time and energy. Passive devices made until now from silicon, glass, plastic or paper which have a human or machine readable output.

What is it good for?

- Carrying out diagnostic tests on a tiny consumable device
- De-coding the human (and other) genome
- High Throughput screening of samples for medical
effectiveness, toxicology etc.
- Making novel materials in small quantities at point of use
- Environmental, Homeland security into the home or
connected to mobile phone
- Enabling personalized medicine, testing if the drug will work
on you before you take it
- Enabling cell/tissue/organ on a chip, simulating bodily functions
in a laboratory scale
- then into testing water, air, food/crops and much more
- all ready for the emerging connected world

Why should you take an interest?

- Manufacturing synergies: flexible substrates, pick and place,
lamination, electrodes, electronic connectors
- Device level synergies adding microfluidics functionality to
electronics products or adding electronics functionality to
microfluidics products

Principles of EMC and High-Speed Signal behaviour on PCB

    Simulation and controlling the creation and propagation of EM fields

Prof. Rainer Thüringer, FED & TH-Mittelhessen

The Proportional Land Dimensioning Concept

As electronic components are becoming ever smaller, optimized footprints

    are required for reliable electronic assemblies – the New Proportional

    Land Dimensioning Concept is a solution for this challenge.

Rainer Taube, Taube Electronic GmbH


    3 Dimensional & embedded electronics – by example of real designs

Due to the need of miniaturisation in the medical sector implantable pcb

    assemblies have to be shrinked more and more. A clever combination of

    different techniques helps to find a adequate solution.

    Michael Matthes, WITTENSTEIN cyber motor GmbH
