Biodegradable electronics

Under the direction of the Fraunhofer FEP, an in-house Fraunhofer project for development of biodegradable electronics was begun last year. The Fraunhofer Institutes ENAS, IBMT and ISC, as well as Fraunhofer Project Group IWKS are working together on the project. The first results of the Fraunhofer FEP will be presented during Semicon Europe 2017 as part of productronica 2017 in Munich at the Silicon-Saxony joint booth in Hall B, Booth Nr. B1-416, November 14-17, 2017.
