Bachelors / Project Thesis: Analysis of the suitability of different printing and ink systems for contacting highly miniaturised components (literature research)

Initial situation

The progressive miniaturisation of electronic products and their components poses ever new challenges for electronics production. This includes the contacting of components. Conventional stencil printing of solder paste is unsuitable for future generation of highly miniaturised components. Therefore, new processes have to be investigated as potential alternatives.


Within the scope of this work, the processes of inkjet, piezojet and e-inkjet printing as well as corresponding printing media containing silver nanoparticles and microparticles are to be investigated for their suitability for contacting electrical components of the size 125 x 250 µm.

For this purpose, an investigation of the joining partners is first to be carried out on the basis of an example assembly and a systematic literature research is to be carried out with the framework conditions determined in the process. Finally, the results of this research are to be evaluated with regard to their suitability for solving the problem.

  • Familiarisation with printed electronics
  • Analysis of the joining partners using laser scanning and scanning electron microscopy
  • Statistical evaluation of the results
  • Carrying out a systematic literature search
  • Systematic evaluation of the results

Requirements and previous knowledge

  • Conscientious and independent way of working
  • Very good knowledge of English
  • Clean and complete documentation of all results
