Reports on the creation of a paradigm shift not only in manufacturing technology but in the strategic approach required for the production of highly integrated, cost-effective and reliable multi-functional three-dimensional miniaturized devices. Manufacturing philosophies used in the design and manufacture of the devices such as lamination, folding construction and lego-type building block construction.
