Designed for industrial, medical, automotive, military and consumer electronics applications
Printed electronics refers to electronic components, modules and applications that are completely or partially made using a printing process. Electronic function materials, in liquid or paste form, are printed. Using this process, Hoffmann + Krippner has successfully produced membrane potentiometers, defined resistors and surface keypads for more than 13 years.
Our new P-DMS Polymer Strain Gage is a compact and cost-effective solution for detecting and measuring pressure. This technology is based on our industry leading and patented sensor paste technology printed directly onto a PCB board.
Extremely sensitive to slight pressures, a small deformation to the paste generates a change of its electrical resistance which provides an analog signal to enable measurement, input and control to a wide range of applications. Requiring no moving parts, this simple device can be very accurate and long lasting. As the strain gage can be directly printed on the application’s control board, it does not need to be connected by wires. This enables compact and affordable designs, as well as eliminating the failure points of wire failure and corrosion.
