Using Piezo Strips in Flexible Electronics

As the technological landscape continues to evolve, the demand for innovative and advanced components has never been more prevalent. One area of technological advancement that has particularly gained traction in recent years is flexible electronics. These bendable and often foldable gadgets, ranging from wearable health monitors to flexible displays, have opened a new era in electronics design. At the forefront of this revolution lies a seemingly simple yet incredibly powerful component – the piezo strip.

At Piezo Direct, we understand the immense potential that piezo strips hold in the field of flexible electronics. Our cutting-edge technology and customer-oriented approach have allowed us to play an instrumental role in this evolving landscape.

The Power of Piezo Strips in Flexible Electronics

Piezo strips, slender pieces of piezoelectric material, bring the impressive capabilities of piezoelectricity into the flexible electronics space. Their inherent features such as the ability to bend without breaking, the capacity to generate power through mechanical deformation, and the adaptability to various form factors make them ideally suited for flexible electronic devices.

Energy Harvesting

One of the most promising applications of piezo strips in flexible electronics is energy harvesting. The ability of piezo strips to convert mechanical stress into electrical energy has potential in wearable devices. For instance, a flexible electronic device fitted with a piezo strip can harness the energy generated by body movements or ambient vibrations. This self-sustaining power generation can significantly extend the battery life of wearable devices or, in some cases, even eliminate the need for batteries altogether.

Sensing Applications

The converse piezoelectric effect, where an applied electric field results in a mechanical deformation, enables piezo strips to serve as high-precision sensors. In flexible electronics, these strips can function as pressure sensors, bend sensors, or vibration detectors, lending themselves to applications such as flexible keyboards, health monitoring devices, or smart clothing.


In devices that require precise and responsive actuation, such as flexible speakers or Braille displays, piezo strips offer a compelling solution. Their rapid and accurate response to applied electric fields allows them to produce intricate movements or vibrations, all while maintaining their flexibility.
