Seminar / Thesis WS 2021


Printed wearable electronics are required for fast prototyping complex systems with very fine tolerance and strict size requirements. The conductive traces built into or printed on top of the 3d-printed parts are essential for the device’s function. The electrical properties of specific conductive materials require further investigations, such as minimum trace width, frequency responses, and crosstalk isolation.


Gain insights into electrical characteristics and design requirements of conductive materials used in printed electronics.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the electrical characteristic of conductive material
  • Frequency response analysis
  • Selecting conductive material for printed electronics
