The term printed electronics consists of several different electronic devices or applications with different characteristics, such as thickness and resolution. Therefore, it is not possible that just one single print technology could replace all printed electronic devices and applications.
Since screen printing is the most popular technique for manufacturing printed electronics, specifying and analyzing screen printed characteristics in more detail could reduce the number of alternatives to this method. After assigning special characteristics to a typical screen printing application manufactured in large quantities, the number of alternative print techniques gets even smaller.
This question, however, can only be answered after thoroughly analyzing the content of the printed electronics collection. To start, we must examine the nature and function of printed electronics.
