Canatu Carbon NanoBud Flexible Touch with CNB In-Mold stretchable, formable, conductive capacitive touch

Posted by Charbax – April 8, 2015

Canatu shows their latest transparent conductive films and touch sensors for flexible and 3D touch devices. At Printed Electronics USA, Canatu announced CNB In-Mold Film, a stretchable, formable, conductive film optimized for 3D formed capacitive touch displays and touch surfaces in automobile center consoles and dashboards, home appliance control panels, remote controls, smartwatches and portable electronic devices. Canatu’s transparent films and touch sensors are based on a new type of carbon nanomaterial: Carbon NanoBud. Carbon NanoBud is not limited by the brittleness or metal fatigue associated with more traditional indium tin oxide (ITO) and metal mesh structures, and therefore stretchability and 3D forms are now possible.

ThinFilm Printed Electronics NFC Smart Labels for Internet of Things

Posted by Charbax – April 6, 2015

Thinfilm is a Norway-based company focused on expanding the traditional Internet of Things into a much broader Internet of Everything using the benefits of printed electronics. Thinfilm’s NFC Barcode and Smart Label product platforms use 13.56MHz Near Field Communication (NFC) technology to communicate from Thinfilm labels (placed on everyday things, at the item level rather than the box/palette/case level) to NFC capable devices, including smartphones and industrial readers. The 128-bit NFC Barcode is manufactured on Thinfilm’s printed-dopant polysilicon (PDPS) manufacturing platform, which enables high-performance transistors capable of handling wireless communication and NFC frequencies and data rates. The payload consists of a mix of fixed ID ROM bits, which cannot be electrically modified for security purposes, and dynamic bits that can the assigned to sensors. Thinfilm recently announced OpenSense technology, which transmits information about the state of a seal (factory sealed or previously opened) to a smartphone. This is being demonstrated in Barcelona in the form of a Johnnie Walker whisky Smart Bottle, which can communicate a unique identification number and dynamic sensing data to a smartphone. The OpenSense technology can lead to improved consumer engagement and can be used to verify authenticity of the underlying product while the seal is still intact. Next, Thinfilm’s temperature sensing Smart Labels integrate batteries, sensing circuitry, optional visual printed electrochromic displays, and NFC wireless transmission function into a single self-contained smart sensing system. These systems use NFC to tell a smartphone or other compatible device whether a food or pharmaceutical shipment stayed within specified temperature limits or whether it became too hot or too cold during transport. That simple data can help caretakers, retailers, and supply chain partners to make smart decisions by providing a real time indication of the temperature behavior (within limits vs. exceeded limits), and the big data pushed to the cloud with every interaction will help brand owners and others to make smarter business decisions based on trends captured by thousands or even millions of units active at any point in time.

IDTechEx interviews PolyIC at Printed Electronics USA

Posted by Charbax – April 3, 2015

PolyIC has developed its own printed electronics technology platform, including proprietary printing process, as well as roll to roll quality control methods. Web speed is at least 30m/min. With the recent focus on transparent conductive films (TCFs), the company now offers bare transparent conducting films or complete touch sensor (capacitive). The touch sensor can be single layer or 2 layers of film. The sensor comes with the tail (printed on same substrate), which is an advantage compared to ITO-based sensors where the tail (flexible PCB) has to be added. This interview was taken at the IDTechEx event Printed Electronics USA. For more information see http://www.IDTechEx.com.

Optomec and 3D Printing Electronics: Interview with IDTechEx

Posted by Charbax – April 3, 2015

Optomec provides two technology offerings. The LENS system, a blown powder laser-based 3D printer for metals which the company manufactures under license from the Sandia National Laboratory. The second is an Aerosol Jet system which provides for conformal, direct-write, non-contact deposition of materials for printed electronics, which the company developed in-house. It can utilize a wide range of materials, with less constraints compared to inkjet. It has been successfully demonstrated and used in metallization of solar cells. This interview with IDTechEx was taken at Printed Electronics USA, hosted by IDTechEx.

ULVAC nanoparticles using silver, gold and ITO

Posted by Charbax – March 8, 2015

ULVAC is a Japanese company that supplies manufacturing equipment to the display and photo-voltaic industry. They offer nanoparticle products using three materials in the main, namely silver, gold and ITO. They have the capability to offer both dispersed and formulated inks (IDTechEx: formulated refers to solutions suitable for printing). The ability to vertically integrate (form the particles, dispersions and inks) allows more value capture within the company. This interview was taken at the IDTechEx event Printed Electronics USA.
