The aim of the research project is the production and characterization of novel mechatronic systems by combining additive manufacturing with printed electronics. In particular, the potential for the production of integrated circuit carriers with internal conductor paths and components is to be exploited. The long-term stability of the generatively produced MID assemblies is to be evaluated by means of reliability tests. Finally, the results will be recorded in the form of a technology demonstrator and the establishment of design guidelines. This will serve the project partners in the development of new applications and the acquisition of new customers and will be the starting point for further research.
