Rethinking electronic manufacturing - why do electronic components always have to be soldered onto a printed circuit board? Is it not possible to omit the printed circuit board at all and integrate the components directly into a single chip package instead? This was the question asked by Prof. Bock's team of four researchers at the Electronic packaging lab of the TU Dresden. The result is a manufacturing approach that saves around half of the process and design steps. Thereby, today’s and tomorrow’s challenges such as high-frequency transmission, cooling and miniaturization can be managed. The technology is called “connecting embedded components as a technological solution” – shortly KONEKT in German.The team around KONEKT raised the EXIST research transfer funding of the BMWi in the amount of 807,000€. This enables the production of adaptively manufactured 3D assemblies on large and competitive dimensions. The KONEKT-technology revolutionizes the electronic assembly by using 3D manufacturing and realizing high-frequency interconnects. It combines the possibility of producing individual packages of rapid prototyping and manufacturing at a large scale. Simplified processes facilitate fast and automated production of various assemblies. Therefore, energy, process and material costs will be reduced. Now, small and medium-sized companies have the opportunity to establish new business fields by ordering individual electronic packages without high set-up costs. During the EXIST-project the KONEKT team will establish a company, which will offer 'packaging-as-a-service'.Tobias Tiedje (KONEKT project manager): "With KONEKT a wide variety of products can be realized, starting from 3D-sensor systems as prototype up to RFIDs and high-frequency assemblies in series manufacturing for the Internet of Things (IoT). The clients will have much more possibilities in designing their product without limiting their creativity and innovation.”
