Peter Willaert from Agfa Materials being interviewed by Raghu Das at Printed Electronics Europe. AGFA develops materials for Printed Electronics and PCB technology. Agfa introduced ORGACON as a printable alternative to ITO in flexible backlights for mobile phones; and it is now integrated in many more items, like touch-sensitive buttons in home appliances and cars. Agfa has also newly introduced ORGACON nanosilver screen printing ink “SI-P1000x”, that features low silver deposition and ultra-high resolution printing, which in turn expands the possibilities in Printed Electronics.

Canatu is a manufacturer of transparent conductive films for touch applications. Canatu's CNB™ films are based on a new type of carbon nanomaterial (Carbon NanoBud®), and a new Roll-to-Roll manufacturing process (Direct Dry Printing®), which combines the synthesis of the Carbon NanoBuds directly from carbon gases and direct deposition to the substrate in one single process. Canatu has customers in the consumer electronics and automotive industry. For more information see http://www.IDTechEx.com
Bainisha is a high-tech start-up dedicated to the development of a new paradigm in Body Motion Capturing. This interview, taken at the IDTechEx event on Wearable Technology, shows some of the product they are working on. Based on a thin hyper-stretchable film version of an Inverse Artificial Muscle, it delivers a set of new and hitherto unattained functionalities in terms of accuracy, speed & differentiation. The on-body concept guarantees an Absolute Body References Frame and hence sets a new standard for Medical Quality Data. Because the system has no "wake-up"-threshold and no filtering and/or damping combined with a +kHz capturing speed, it allows capturing such minute displacements as muscle tremor, pre-natal contractions, fatigue induced tremble etc... as well as explosive kinetics.

Enfucell is a customized battery supplier to the printed electronics industry. The company has developed SoftBattery®, a thin, flexible and eco-friendly printed power source and at the IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe event in Berlin it showcased a range of products based on this battery. It includes a powered wireless golf sensor patch which was developed in a joint project with Qualcomm. The patch is attached to a golf club head for measuring acceleration and angular velocity. The acquired data is transferred via low energy Bluetooth (BLE) to an application on a mobile device. Enfucell battery powers the BLE data transmission without additional capacitor demonstrating the highest peak power capability in the industry. Battery is also fully integrated to the system.
The disposable patch is helping golf players to improve their swing. This is the first time that a player can actually get feedback from the club head. A fully integrated printed battery enables thin and light construction which does not interfere with the normal stroke. Thanks to the BLE communication, data can be analyzed on site on the driving range during a training session. The data is collected to and processed on an Android tablet.
A similar patch can be tailored for other racquet sports, shooting, bowling, etc. Enfucell is looking for partners for commercializing the product. The new product platform completes Enfucell application range with previously introduced temperature logger (collaboration with NXP) and iontophoresis patch (collaboration with The Ionto Team, Spain). Also these products have fully integrated Enfucell battery technology. All of these are shown in the video. To learn more see http://www.PrintedElectronicsWorld.com
Jan Hederen of Ericsson presents the clickable world, how everything – including nature, can be part of our connected world and how a simple touch allows you to communicate with anything. Today, we are on the brink of an extraordinary revolution where everything that benefits from a connection will have one. This Networked Society is in real time will place many new requirements on us while opening up opportunities beyond our imagination. Those who have the ability to rethink, reinvent and innovate will be winners in this new value-creating ecosystem. In the presentation "The power of touch - Exploring the real world web" Jan Hederen at Ericsson presented at the IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe discussing and demonstrating their initial findings in creating a clickable world, exploring the opportunities with partners to use printed electronics to realize this new connected world.
