Flexous Turns Human Motion into Electricity

Posted by Charbax – October 5, 2015

Flexous demonstrating energy harvesting from random vibrations and low frequencies at "Energy Harvesting & Storage Europe". Flexous is a high-tech start-up developing high-performance energy harvesters. Converting ambient motion into mW-range electricity, these energy harvesters open a new era in power sources. The unique technology enables harvesting efficiently at random vibrations and low frequencies. Wireless sensors used in logistics and assets tracking, automotive, sport, fitness, medical wearables and industrial condition monitoring can benefit from Flexous energy harvesters in multiple ways.

Printed Temperature Sensor Demo at IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe

Posted by Charbax – October 5, 2015

Prof. David Britton from PST Sensors demonstrating their temperature sensing systems (printed silicon nanoparticle negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistor) to Raghu Das (IDTechEx) at Printed Electronics Europe. PST sells the ability to put temperature sensing into everything, anywhere. Working with its customers, PST Sensors has developed a suite of temperature sensing systems which cannot be manufactured using other technologies. These include not only fully flexible and large area temperature sensing systems, but also sensor arrays. At the heart of PST Sensors' product range is a silicon nanoparticle negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistor which can be printed on almost any material including paper, fabric and polymer film, with an almost infinite choice of form factors.

NovaCentrix Hybrid Products and Applications with Printed Electronics at Printed Electronics Europe

Posted by Charbax – October 2, 2015

Interview with Stan Farnsworth from NovaCentrix. NovaCentrix is focused on technologies and materials to enable manufacturing in Printed Electronics. The PulseForge® photonic curing tools process high-temperature materials on low-temperature substrates. Applications include drying, sintering, annealing, or reacting metallic, non-metallic, and semiconductor inks, without damaging temperature sensitive substrates such as foils and plastics. With processing times of only milliseconds, surface depositions can be heated to melting or crystallization temperatures without damaging low temperature substrates. The very short processing times of the PulseForge® tools allow for high-speed processing rates in a roll-to-roll production format at speeds approaching 100 meters per minute.
