>When they extracted and dried out the skin, they found it is flexible, a good insulator, can withstand temperatures of more than 200°C (390°F) and has a thickness similar to that of a sheet of paper – good properties for a circuit’s substrate.

Mushrooms are amazing

So… not a computer chip. A substrate is the base material of a PCBA (typically FR4 with copper layers), a computer chip is silicon.

Flipchip applications come to mind. Source: 30 years of IC layout.

You mean SOC or something with an interposer? Cuz wouldn’t flip chip be bare silicon down to PCBA?
