    Abstract

    In this case study, the possibilities of hybrid integration of printed and flexible electronics in combination with conventional electronic components to create new types of product concepts is demonstrated. The final result is a personal activity meter demonstrator, which is realized by utilizing various flexible and wearable electronics manufacturing and integration techniques including roll-to-roll printing, pick-andplace component assembly, laser processing, and injection molding. To validate the feasibility and scalability of the processes used, 100 pieces of the personal activity meter were fabricated.
