Fun, Lego-like blocks to show how 3D circuits work

Lego-type blocks are a great way to show how 3D circuits work. Thanks to new assembly (3D integration) technologies developed at Leti, circuits can be juxtaposed and stacked at will inside the same enclosure. The building-block-type strategy can be used to assemble different circuits, each with its own unique or generic function, and each made… Lire la suite » ... Read more »
