Reading time ( words)

Heilind Electronics, a leading distributor of electronic components, announced today the signing of a global distribution agreement with Laird Performance Materials, a portfolio company of privately held Advent International.

Laird serves leading names in electronics with innovative thermal interface materials; electromagnetic interference shielding materials and magnetic ceramic solutions; RF and microwave absorbers; precision and structural metals; and industry-leading multifunctional products.

The global agreement is designed to better serve a wide range of end usersspecifically, through leveraging Heilind’s formidable sales capabilities and broad engineering expertise with Laird’s global footprint of manufacturing sites and engineering teams.

“We are excited to expand and strengthen our relationship with Laird,” said Alan Clapp, Vice President, Heilind Electronics. “Utilizing our global distribution and sales network, this partnership is a natural fit that not only helps position Heilind closer to its customers, but also allows us to more effectively meet their requirements.”

Kirigami Inspires New Method for Wearable Sensors

10/22/2019 | University of Illinois
As wearable sensors become more prevalent, the need for a material resistant to damage from the stress and strains of the human body’s natural movement becomes ever more crucial. To that end, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed a method of adopting kirigami architectures to help materials become more strain tolerant and more adaptable to movement.

Brittle Pals Bond for Flexible Electronics

05/13/2019 | Rice University
Mixing two brittle materials to make something flexible defies common sense, but Rice University scientists have done just that to make a novel dielectric. Dielectrics are the polarized insulators in batteries and other devices that separate positive and negative electrodes. Without them, there are no electronic devices.

Beyond Scaling: An Electronics Resurgence Initiative

06/05/2017 | DARPA
The Department of Defense’s proposed FY 2018 budget includes a $75 million allocation for DARPA in support of a new, public-private “electronics resurgence” initiative. The initiative seeks to undergird a new era of electronics in which advances in performance will be catalyzed not just by continued component miniaturization but also by radically new microsystem materials, designs, and architectures.
