The leading RFID technology provider SMARTRAC Technology Group (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) has launched InTrace Cannula, an animal ID product solution. The enhanced transponder implanting system can be used for easy and efficient RFID tagging of most animal species including pets, cattle, sheep, horses, fish, birds or reptiles.
SmartKem, a developer of semiconductors for the manufacture of flexible displays and electronics with headquarters in Manchester, UK, has reported a new world record in digital circuit performance with its solution-processed organic semiconductor tru-FLEX. Integrated circuits based on organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) have been in development for over 15 years with development scientists working on both the speed and complexity of integrated circuits for a range of electronics applications.
The Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore has successfully printed complex electronic circuits using a common t-shirt printer. The electronic circuits are printed using unique materials in layers on top of everyday flexible materials such as plastic, aluminium foil and even paper. Resistors, transistors and capacitors, the key components of a complex electronic circuit, are printed using non-toxic organic materials like silver nanoparticles, carbon and plastics.
