|SOP for Miniauturized Multifunctional Wearable Electronics|
|Keywords: wireless, sensors, embedded|
|Miniaturization of wearable electronic components is a primary requirement for future defense and security technologies. For a soldier facing a chemical and biological warfare, the individual chemical sensors, embedded power sources, and wireless communication interfaces need to be integrated, monitored, and be intelligently controlled by an electronic circuit with the size of a name tag, using minimal power. The System-On-Package paradigm, pursued at Georgia Tech. PRC, enables this miniaturization by integrating all the individual functional components (batteries, sensors, passive and active components) in thin film form on a single robust substrate with reliable active device interconnection. This presentation will focus on key component technologies for SOP that are critical for the US army’s Future Force Warrier (FFW) vision. The first part will deal with embedded passive components for miniaturized mixed signal circuits and low profile antennas using high permittivity thin film capacitors and magnetic nanoantennas. The second part will focus on large scale integration of functionalized nanosensors for chemical and bio sensor arrays with semiconductor nanobelts (ex. ZnO). The third part of this talk will focus on embedded thin film batteries technology that is compatible with flexible organic build-up layers.|
