The objective of this book is to provide a comprehensive guide to the state of the art technologies and methods applied in the realization of flexible and wearable electronics. The targeted readers of this book include but not limited to college professors, Research and Development scientists, practicing electronics and material engineers, in addition to all the enthusiasts interested in modern technological advancements. Moreover, the book serves as an extensive resource for graduate students working on topics related to wearable and flexible electronics. This book, organized into eleven chapters, introduces the latest research findings and trends related to the design, fabrication processes and techniques used in the realization of wearable and flexible electronics. Chapter One shows how recent developments in wireless, flexible, fully-printable, and sensor technologies are paving the way for the emergence of ubiquitous sensing capabilities, in the form of "Smart Skins" and the Internet of Things (IoT). The chapter also presents a brief review of state-of-the-art implementations of flexible chemical sensing components technologies; and reviews the latest advances in wireless interrogation techniques for such devices. Chapter Two presents the incremental Latin Hypercube Sampling (LHS) technique which is aimed at speeding up the circuit simulations while considering process variation and aging effects. Two automated robust design optimization techniques are introduced for the analog circuits with flexible Thin Film Transistors. Chapter Three presents the advantages and suitability of semiconducting Nano Wires (NWs) for flexible and large area electronics. Various aspects of NWs such as physical and chemical properties, synthesis methods, processing, and applications are reviewed with examples. Chapter Four discusses how to fabricate flexible/stretchable piezoelectric devices by the use of electrohydrodynamical direct-writing technique. Furthermore, this chapter provides detailed engineering design rules and paves a cost-effective and high-efficiency manufacturing pathway for applications in wearable and bio-integrated electronics. Chapter Five explores chief approaches towards the development of flexible silicon electronics. The chapter reports some of the most promising methodologies for converting rigid silicon substrates into flexible electronics through the use of silicon-based nanomaterials, etch-release processes, and stress-based wafer spalling. Chapter Six focuses on the use of inkjet printing technique of conductive tracks and electrode patterns on textile substrates. The chapter also reports a two-step fabrication process using UV barrier channels and low viscosity functional inks. Chapter Seven provides an overview of existing wearable technologies for Intra-Body Communication (IBC); it also addresses their potential and challenges, and discusses future directions. Chapter Eight presents the design of a flexible antenna structure operating at multiple frequencies covering WLAN, WiMaX, GPS, and ISM applications. Chapter Nine discusses the design of Near Field Communication (NFC) wearable antennas. The chapter examines the design of such antennas especially for small gadgets like wristbands, watches, and rings. Chapter Ten reports recent advances in the fabrication, structure, mechanism and electrical output performances of various fiber-based and textile-based flexible generators, including piezoelectric, triboelectric and electret generators. Moreover, discussions are provided regarding newfangled applications, current challenges and future directions. Last but not least, the appropriate choice of the electronic elements of wearable sensor nodes including the power source, sensors, digital signal processing components, and transceivers to build up an energy-efficient wearable body area network is discussed in Chapter Eleven.

Design, DIY, and computer-controlled fabrication are a powerful combination for making high-quality customized things. Written by the founders of the architecture, design, and research firm Filson and Rohrbacher, this book takes you through the basics of CNC fabrication, the design process, production, and construction of your own furniture designs. Through their AtFAB series of projects, accompanied by an overview of digital techniques and design thinking, this book introduces the knowledge and skills that you'll find widely applicable across all kinds of CNC projects. Not only will you learn how to design, fabricate, and assemble a wide range of projects, you'll have some great furniture to show for it! While 3D printing has been grabbing headlines, high school, college, library, and other public makerspaces have been making things with CNC machines. With a CNC router, you can cut parts from strong, tactile, durable materials like wood. Once you have your design and material, you can set up your job and let it run. When it's done, you can put the project together for an heirloom of your own. While 3D printing can make exciting things with complex designs, CNCs are the digital workhorses that produce large-scale, long-lasting objects.

Architecture in the Digital Age addresses contemporary architectural practice in which digital technologies are radically changing how buildings are conceived, designed and produced. It discusses the digitally-driven changes, their origins, and their effects by grounding them in actual practices already taking place, while simultaneously speculating about their wider implications for the future. The book offers a diverse set of ideas as to what is relevant today and what will be relevant tomorrow for emerging architectural practices of the digital age.

In this second edition of Material Strategies in Digital Fabrication are new case studies, improved wayfinding, the inclusion of composites and plastics, and references to similar strategies between different projects. In 400 step-by-step diagrams dissecting 39 case studies in 10 countries on 3 continents, the book shows you how material performance drives the digital fabrication process and determines technique. The book identifies the important characteristics of each material, including connection types, relative costs, deformation, color, texture, finish, dimensional properties, durability, and weathering and waterproofing to link design outcomes to form. The book is divided into five main chapters by material; wood, metal, concrete/masonry, composites/plastics, and recycled/pre-cycled, to help you reference construction techniques for the fabrication machines you have on-hand.

Complete PCB Design Using OrCad Capture and Layout provides instruction on how to use the OrCAD design suite to design and manufacture printed circuit boards. The book is written for both students and practicing engineers who need a quick tutorial on how to use the software and who need in-depth knowledge of the capabilities and limitations of the software package. There are two goals the book aims to reach: The primary goal is to show the reader how to design a PCB using OrCAD Capture and OrCAD Layout. Capture is used to build the schematic diagram of the circuit, and Layout is used to design the circuit board so that it can be manufactured. The secondary goal is to show the reader how to add PSpice simulation capabilities to the design, and how to develop custom schematic parts, footprints and PSpice models. Often times separate designs are produced for documentation, simulation and board fabrication. This book shows how to perform all three functions from the same schematic design. This approach saves time and money and ensures continuity between the design and the manufactured product. Information is presented in the exact order a circuit and PCB are designed Straightforward, realistic examples present the how and why the designs work, providing a comprehensive toolset for understanding the OrCAD software Introduction to the IPC, JEDEC, and IEEE standards relating to PCB design Full-color interior and extensive illustrations allow readers to learn features of the product in the most realistic manner possible
