#6 Online-Session »Advanced flexible circuits for novel applications«

»Reliability aspects of stretchable electronic applications«

This lecture presents results of an adapted approach to assess material properties by modified mechanical test methods. They are part of research activities to develop new simulation techniques and testing methods that use approaches to model hyper-elastic material properties for different applications.

Speaker: D.-Ing. Hans Walter

Stretchable electronics getting more and more in focus for both consumer and medical applications (e.g. skin wearable body-monitoring systems or sensitive implants). Typically, electronic components and metal conductor paths are embedded in elastomeric substrates. These material combinations of highly elastic behavior of the substrate (strains up to ~ 150 %) and the relatively stiff metal components with a typical elastic stretchability (Cu < 1 %) cause a problem regarding the mechanical reliability. The important factor for reliability assessment by FEM is not only the material properties of individual components, but also the behavior of metal-polymer interfaces. Accurate prediction of component behavior requires both, suitable material models and accurate material properties data.

Register for our last lecture session on Mai 17, 2022: Within 45 minutes we would like to show you one presentation and afterwards you have th chance to ask our expert. Participation is free of charge, but registration is required.

Fraunhofer IZM stands for application-oriented, industry-oriented research.
With its technology clusters in the field of wafer and substrate process technology as well as its high competence in simulation and metrology, Fraunhofer IZM covers the entire range required for the realization of reliable electronics and their integration into applications. With our expert session series "Advanced flexible Circuits for novel Applications"we want to introduce you to the world of flexibles!

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
