NextFlex Calls for 3D Imaging Technology Proposals

Nolan Johnson talks with Scott Miller about a special "Open Project" call for proposals which NextFlex currently is exploring for methods to dewarp 3D scans of physical boards to enable multi-image scans to be stitched together. There is the possibility of funding for viable proposals. Deadline is May 15, 2023.

About NextFlex Project Calls
Along with developing the workforce of the future and promoting a sustainable advanced manufacturing ecosystem, NextFlex is also focused on accelerating flexible electronics technology innovation and commercialization through pre-competitive partnerships.

Via a series of Project Calls that provide cash awards to proposal teams for development projects that are critical to Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE) manufacturing, NextFlex underwrites up to 50% of the development costs of selected projects. The Project Call process follows a structured selection process and rigorous oversight methodology to ensure diversity and breadth in the selection of projects funded.

About Open Project Calls
Opportunities exist to move the Flexible Hybrid Electronics (FHE) industry forward that are either outside the scope of traditional Project Call topics or are revolutionary ideas of which the NextFlex Technical Working Groups and community may not be aware. The Open Project Call has been established to respond to these advanced manufacturing and flexible electronics opportunities through an RFI (Request for Ideas), to which proposers may submit a white paper.

Multi-board Etching: Managing Rigid-Flex Designs and Conductivity

Good troubleshooting techniques involve considering a system as individual parts rather than as a whole. The same techniques apply to your work with multi-board PCB designs. Each board consists of a single unit that has its own lifecycle. Some product designs may use a single PCB design for multiple functions or for multiple devices. Others may interconnect multiple PCB designs to produce a complete, fully functional system.
