In-home healthcare services based on the Internet-of-Things (IoT) have great business potential; however, a comprehensive platform is still missing. In this paper, an intelligent home-based platform, the iHome Health-IoT, is proposed and implemented. In particular, the platform involves an open-platform-based intelligent medicine box (iMedBox) with enhanced(More)
This paper presents the prototype implementation of a Bio-Patch using fully integrated low-power system-on-chip (SoC) sensor and paper-based inkjet printing technology. The SoC sensor is featured with programmable gain and bandwidth to accommodate a variety of biosignals. It is fabricated in a 0.18-μm standard CMOS technology, with a total power(More)
This study examines the sintering of inkjet printed nanoparticle copper ink in a room environment using a laser as a high speed sintering method. Printed patterns were sintered with increasing laser scanning speed up to 400 mm s(-1). The resistivities of the sintered structures were measured and plotted against the scanning speeds. Increased resistivity(More)
In this contribution we discuss the sintering of an inkjet-printed copper nanoparticle ink based on electrical performance and microstructure analysis. Laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) sintering are employed in order to compare the different techniques and their feasibility for electronics manufacturing. A conductivity of more than 20% of that of bulk(More)
We have tested a method of printing electrodes on the unmetalled polyvinylidenefluoride (PVDF) material to construct a matrix version of a sensor for normal and shear stress measurements on sole. A commercial PVDF material with silver ink metallization has previously been used to manufacture a single sensor prototype. With the metal-coated PVDF material, a(More)
Printed intelligence is a promising new technology to produce low-cost electronics. Non-conductive circuits can be printed using nanoscale metal particle inks. Due to the nanoscale size of the particles, the typical sintering temperatures of 100–300 °C are only a fraction of the macroscopic melting point of the corresponding materials, thus allowing the use(More)
Copper is an interesting material for printed electronics inks because, for example, of its good conductivity and lower raw material price compared to silver. However, post-processing Cu inks is challenging because of non-conductive copper oxide. In this work, inkjet-printed Cu nanoparticle structures were sintered on a polyimide substrate with a(More)
Additive manufacturing technology using inkjet offers several improvements to electronics manufacturing compared to current nonadditive masking technologies. Manufacturing processes can be made more efficient, straightforward and flexible compared to subtractive masking processes, several time-consuming and expensive steps can be omitted. Due to the(More)
This paper presents a hybrid wearable bio-sensing system, which combines traditional small-area low-power and high-performance System-on-Chip (SoC), flexible paper substrate and cost-effective Printed Electronics. Differential bio-signals are measured, digitized, stored and transmitted by the SoC. The total area of the chip is 1.5 × 3.0 mm(2). This enables(More)
