Design workflow is the core to your design team's competitive advantage; it’s the conduit by which you turn your team's expertise and ideas into manufacturable products. And yet, all engineering teams face the challenge of maximizing their productivity within limited financial resources. How can the less-capitalized teams develop a design workflow that competes with the highly-capitalized teams? Simple: open tools.

Flexible hybrid electronics (FHE), designed in wearable and implantable configurations, have enormous applications in advanced healthcare, rapid disease diagnostics, and persistent human-machine interfaces. Soft, contoured geometries and time-dynamic deformation of the targeted tissues require high flexibility and stretchability of the integrated bioelectronics. Recent progress in developing and engineering soft materials has provided a unique opportunity to design various types of mechanically compliant and deformable systems. Here, we summarize the required properties of soft materials and their characteristics for configuring sensing and substrate components in wearable and implantable devices and systems. Details of functionality and sensitivity of the recently developed FHE are discussed with the application areas in medicine, healthcare, and machine interactions. This review concludes with a discussion on limitations of current materials, key requirements for next generation materials, and new application areas.

This technology transfer was prepared by the Research Triangle Institute (RTI) as part of SEMATECH's Facility Fluids Project (S100). It is a compilation of information on existing facility fluids metric and test methods. Information on standard methods was gathered from SEMATECH and SEMI. Other information was obtained from a literature search of journals and conference proceedings. The published information primarily is concerned with the test equipment used and what levels of detection and purity were found. Many of the articles discussed the use of new equipment, either commercial or experimental. Extensive annotated bibliographies are append to the report.
