PragmatIC (Cambridge, UK), a leader in ultra-low cost flexible electronics, has secured agreements for installation of its first FlexLogIC system capable of producing billions of flexible integrated circuits. FlexLogIC is a self-contained, fully automated, modular “fab-in-a-box” for high throughput manufacturing of flexible plastic semiconductor devices. With the concept announced a year ago,
PragmatIC has now completed design and engineering work, and the final specification delivers both higher capacity and lower production cost than the original concept.
The signs are still set for growth in the organic and printed electronics industry. This is the clear message to result from the latest business climate survey conducted by the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association). 80% of survey participants expect the industry to continue its positive development in the coming year. The results of the survey, carried out for the seventh time, were presented by OE-A Chair Dr Jeremy Burroughes to the international press at LOPEC 2017 – the leading international trade fair and conference for organic and printed electronics – in Munich, Germany.
From March 28 to 30, 2017, LOPEC proved in Munich, Germany, that the interest in printed electronics continues to grow. The ninth edition of the international exhibition for printed electronics set new records across the board, while also showcasing numerous world-firsts. Concurrently, the LOPEC Conference impressed with a top-class, highly international line-up, featuring speakers from Samsung and the European Commission.
