In partnership with many of the leading pharmaceutical companies, we design, manufacture and commercialize key innovative drug delivery solutions. From pens and autoinjectors to pumps and inhalers, we innovate with our partners to provide end-to-end solutions to the most difficult drug delivery challenges. Visit us at booth C50 in Hall 7.2 to learn more about our pharma packaging and drug delivery solutions. Learn more

Integrating sophisticated functionalities into the miniaturized system of a drug delivery device poses a unique challenge – to which flexible hybrid systems present the only viable, cost-effective solution. Hybrid systems combine traditional silicon integrated circuits with functional smart substrates, such as flexible batteries, sensors, interconnects, antennae and displays.  

While still in their early days, these systems ultimately target deployment across industries, including logistics, medical devices, consumer electronics and industrial sensing. Deployment is predicted in mass volumes at an estimated hundreds of millions to billions per year, and usually at ultra-low target prices in the tens of cents. 

The design and development of these tiny yet complex devices pose tight constraints in system design, process development, materials selection and assembly equipment design. 

Dr. Tommaso Borghi, PhD, Design Program Manager at Flex, will speak about these challenges and the critical role of flexible hybrid systems in unlocking new applications for disposable injectors.
