In electronics manufacturing, an electric interconnection or a system integration step is always required before releasing products. All expected PE products introduced in Chap. 1 require certain kinds of system integration. For instance, displays fabricated using PE technology always require several logic circuits, an energy supply, wireless/wired connection circuits, and other features. Photovoltaic cells require series interconnections and connectors to cables to a battery or a power conditioner. Thus, an interconnection method is one of the essential technologies for PE products. Several important requirements for PE interconnection technology are listed as follows:


Contact Resistance Epoxy Matrix Screen Printing Conductive Adhesive Eutectic Solder
