Printed Electronics is generally defined as the patterning of electronic materials, in solution form, onto flexible substrates, omitting any use of the photolithography, etching, and plating steps commonly found within the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) industry. The origins of printed electronics go back to the 1960s, and close variants of several original applications and market segments remain active today. Through the 1980s and 1990s Printed Electronic applications based on Membrane Touch Switch and Electroluminescent lighting technologies became common, and the screen printed electronic materials used then have formed the building blocks for many of the current and emerging technologies and applications...

In 1998, the International 300 mm Initiative (I300I) demonstration and characterization programs will focus on 180 nm technology capability. To support these activities, I300I and equipment supplier demonstration partners must use starting silicon wafers with key parameters specified at a level appropriate level for 180 nm processing, including contamination and lithographic patterning. This document describes I300I's silicon wafer specifications, as developed with the I300I Silicon Working Group (member company technical advisors) and SEMI Standards.
