IME (In-Mold Electronics) is a technology for integral molding to form three-dimensional molded film which electronic circuit was drawn on and resin. By integrating parts that had been divided into the housing and electronic board, the following effects can be expected.
- Gross weight reduction
- Improve the performance of touch sensors, antennas, etc.
- Improve the quality of design, reduce assembling proress
- Protect circuits
- Reduce cost
In use case of straight wiring, it will be cut if it makes three dimensions, but meander wiring will prevent this disconnection.
Cracks do not appear
vertex value R20mm was used for prototype
Integrally mold with resin by fitting the circuit to the three-dimensional curved surface
Expandable circuit board that makes use of a kirigami structure
How the non-stretchable flexible PCB can stretch
Although the materials of the flex PCB do not stretch, it is possible to stretch a circuit board by giving it a Tomoe-type structure.
Tomoe type kirigami structure that allows for 180˚ bends
Antennas, touch sensors, single-sided circuit mounted
