NovaCentrix talks about how their customers are using their tools for the emerging flexible display and flexible IoT and sensors industry.
HoIst Center for Innovation is working on a model of shared knowledge and R&D for various industrial partners, where they work on cutting edge technology like flexible OLED displays, In-mold electronics like capacitive touch sensors, OLED lighting, NFC and switch and gates. They are also showing the stretchable printed electronics PCB which can be use in the textile and sports industry. Filmed at the IDTechEx Show!
AGFA Group provides the technology solution to Health care and Printing industry. Here they are showcasing the Nano silver conductive Ink for printed electronics. They use this silver metal mesh for making the transparent conductive plastic surface. On the other side of the booth is the inkjet printable Solder mask for high accuracy and low pollution PCB manufacturing and digitally printed nano silver Ink on paper with the same conductivity as plastic.

C3Nano makes silver nanowire (AgNW) transparent conductors using their Nanoglue technology. These are used in flexible touch screens for phones, wearables etc. C3Nano is a spinoff from Stanford University. This interview was conducted by Sri Peruvemba at their Headquarters in the Silicon Valley, with Dr Ajay Virkar, Co-founder of C3Nano, they got into the details of what they are claiming as the best transparent in the market. Andrew Moon, Product Manager and Yadong Cao, Applications Engineer demonstrated the various products featuring C3Nano. Their newly released Onyx product is aiming to replace ITO in touch screens, in OLED displays, in solar panels as well as biotech applications. The company’s investors and customers include Nissha, Hitachi Chemicals, Nagase and many others.

ITRI is the Industrial Technology Research Institute in Taiwan which is one of the world’s leading technology R&D institutions aiming to innovate a better future for society. ITRI shows their solution for controlling Flexible OLED lighting. OLED Lighting offers more natural and more vibrant lighting than conventional lighting. ITRI also shows their sensors which are for example used in shoe pads which generate electricity. ITRI's Intelligent Vision Robot plays chess seeing all the chess pieces on the board and moving them around. I play a quick game of chess against the robot which sadly I had to concede to the Chess Playing Robot Turk because I didn't have enough battery in my camera (I think).
