FlexEnable (Cambridge, UK), a leader in the development and industrialisation of organic electronics for flexible displays and liquid crystal optics has won the prestigious Disruptive Innovation Award for 2021 at the TechWorks Awards.
TNO at Holst Centre (Eindhoven, The Netherlands), Solliance and TU/e worked together in the development of a thin and flexible scanner for fingerprints. Low-resolution image-sensor arrays have been demonstrated in the past, but the step toward high-resolution, high pixel-count image sensors suitable for commercial applications has been lacking to date. Gerwin Gelinck and Albert van Breemen took the flexible fingerprint scanner to the next level, and now have an article published on this subject in the current edition of Nature Electronics.
TechBlick, a leading platform for emerging technologies, has announced that it will hold its first physical event in Eindhoven on 12 and 13 October 2022. TechBlick LIVE, The Future of Electronics RESHAPED will be a two-day conference and table-top exhibition on re-shaping the future of electronics focusing on the key topics of printed, flexible, additive, hybrid, wearable, textile, 3D, structural and in-mould electronics.
