Research Professor

Medical device industry is a rapidly growing opportunity area for photonics technologies, with applications ranging from diagnostics to surgical tools and therapeutics. Real-time monitoring of vital parameters with unobtrusive wearable devices can minimize the time of patients in hospital and ultimately the technologies can enable a paradigm change from treatment-based healthcare towards preventive and participatory medicine. For example, optical monitoring of hearth rate, blood pressure, physical activity and other parameters can minimize risk for post-treatment complications and subsequent treatment costs and enhance the quality of life. Besides healthcare, in wellness applications wearable devices help citizens to better track, for example, the stress levels and thus optimize the amount and level of exercises. A key issue in the production of wearable devices with the maximized user comfortability, is the manufacturing process capable for assembling and integrating devices in flexible and stretchable form factors. At high volumes this can be made using multiple roll-to-roll fabrication processes covering printing of electrical wiring and stop&go component assembly. As an outcome the wearable photonic monitoring devices can be highly sophisticated acquiring multimodal data or low-cost plaster-type devices intended for a short term usage.

Steliyan Vasilev

Co-Founder & Development Engineer

Embroidery technology, once rooted in historic hand-stitched garment design, has experienced a remarkable resurgence with the advent of computerization. Due to its unparalleled capacity for material optimization, embroidery offers textile engineers the ability to precisely place single fibers,yarns, fiber bundles, or even wires in a pre-designed geometry. This precision makes embroidery an ideal candidate for integrating functionality into textiles through sensors, actuators, or electrodes. By enabling the automatic integration of conductive fibers and electronic components into textiles,embroidery technology facilitates the creation of e-textiles. This capability opens the door to a myriad of applications, ranging from ECG and EMS electrodes to capacitive, strain and pressure sensors, and even illumination systems and heating elements.Despite the longstanding development of e-textiles, the realization of market-ready products has been limited by high production costs and poor reproducibility resulting from manual production processes. The high degree of automations of embroidery technology, combined with the scalability enabled by multi-head machines, has revolutionized e-textile production. This automation not only reduces costs but also ensures consistent quality, paving the way for the widespread adoption of e-textiles in various industries.

Introduction
CondAlign is an innovative technology company that has patented and developed a new range of adhesive anisotropic conductive films (ACFs), to enable efficient components bonding for the flexible and hybrid electronics (FHE) industry. This new ACF named E-Align, provides excellent electrical and mechanical bonding performances, in particular to bond electronic components to flexible and rigid substrates.This ACF comes in the form of a double-sided tape, and it doesn’t require any post curing process. Its application process is also very simple, considering that doesn’t require any high pressure (typical bonding pressure is ca 0,1 – 0,3 MPa) or heat (it can be bonded at room temperature).Through these unique characteristics, the E-Align ACF has the ambition of simplifying the entire electronic production and assembly process, increasing efficiency and reducing costs.Presentation content In this presentation, CondAlign will start with an introduction of the technology principles behind the products development, will then provide an overview of the characteristics of the different ACF products already available in the market and the others under qualification, and will finally conclude with different examples of successful end user applications, where the E-Align ACF products enable sustainable and cost-efficient electronic bonding of different products for distinct industries. Examples of applications are the following: bonding printed batteries to printed IOT platforms for logistic and inventory tracking solutions, bonding flexible displays to flex-tails, bonding skin patches to wearable electronic medical devices, etc.
