Printed Systems for IoT Low Power Electronics
20 octubre 2022 | 09:15h a 14:30h

 Eurecat | C/Bilbao, 72 | 08005 Barcelona
Jornada híbrida: presencial amb retransmissió online en directe 

El gran creixement de la Iot i els dispositius portàtils en diferents entorns, com ara monitoratge ambiental o proves puntuals per a aplicacions sanitàries, entre d’altres, ha augmentat la demanda de dispositius i sensors autoalimentats, així com de mètodes de fabricació més barats i ràpids. La recerca actual en electrònica impresa obre el camí per al disseny de dispositius flexibles i de baix cost per a aplicacions de recol·lecció. La forma principal d’obtenir dispositius autoalimentats és centrar-se en la recollida d’energia mitjançant fonts d’energia sostenibles, com ara termoelèctrica, solar, piezoelèctrica, RF, etc. En aplicacions de potència prou baixa, aquestes fonts d’energia poden fins i tot eliminar la necessitat de bateries, reduint fins i tot més, els costos de fabricació i contaminació.


> Explorar l’aplicació més recent de l’electrònica impresa en el desenvolupament d’electrònica de baixa potència.

> Presentar els últims avenços sobre materials, enginyeria electrònica i dispositius impresos per a electrònica de baixa potència.

> Donar una visió general dels dispositius termoelèctrics, piezoelèctrics i auto alimentats, juntament amb l’enfocament de la seva implementació en circuits impresos híbrids, per a aplicacions Iot flexibles i lleugeres.

> Generar un think tank del futur dels generadors i dispositius impresos eficients energèticament en el marc de l’electrònica sostenible i les ciutats intel·ligents.
