In Printed Electronics Agfa offer a PEDOT:PSS conductive polymer and, recently, a nano silver ink. The PEDOT:PSS material is used for antistatic optical films and device packaging. In this application AGFA coat the substrate themselves. AGFA also has developed a range of screen printed PEDOT:PSS conductive inks. The material is widely used in polymer capacitors. The emerging application is transparent electrodes. AGFA has also developed a nanosilver ink to support high conductivity over a long range with short range conductivity and transparency provided by PEDOT:PSS.
This interview with AGFA and IDTechEx was conducted at Printed Electronics USA - the largest event in the world on the topic. For more information see http://www.idtechex.com

At the IDTechEx conferences in Santa Clara, California, I have a conversation with Alfred Poor (Editor of Health Tech Insider), Dan Rosenbaum (Editor of Wearable Tech Insider), and James Hayward (Technology Analyst with IDTechEx). The wide ranging discussion covered wearable technology, printable electronics, and the other new technology on display at the conference. The three experts shared their views on the future of personal technology, and what will drive the growth of these markets.
XENON has over 50 years of experience providing high energy pulsed light lamps and systems to industries as diverse as medical devices, optical storage media, displays and semiconductors. Xenon engineers have solved low-temperature curing problems for new process technologies, based on the extraordinary range of power and system flexibility of pulsed light. High peak energy lamp systems are used in emerging applications such as sintering nanoparticle inks on low-temperature substrates and low-temperature curing thin film materials such as organic photovoltaics, OLED displays and multi-layer flexible circuits.

Felix Ho, CEO of Taiwanese based YFY Group, a diversified conglomerate company owning companies such as E Ink, creating electrophoretic displays, and Arizon, creating RFID inlays, describes in this video their interest in printed electronics. Ho gave a keynote presentation at the IDTechEx Printed Electronics USA event in Santa Clara, Ca on November 19-20 2014, the world’s largest event on printed, flexible and organic electronics with around 3000 attendees and 200 exhibitors. Before the event, Ho reported, "YFY believes printed electronics will connect and empower everyday objects in ways we never imagined. We have eagerly followed the field for almost 2 decades, and never has the space been more active and relevant than now. We are anxious to see the field's progress, and hope to draw inspiration from the participants at the industry's leading event from IDTechEx." For more information see www.IDTechEx.com
Production tools to enable Printed Electronics from NovaCentrix, shown at the IDTechEx Printed Electronics USA Event
As lead sponsor of the 2014 IDTechEx Printed Electronics USA event, NovaCentrix walks us through their impressive exhibition booth in this video providing insight on how to move from research and development through to commercial production in printed electronics. Here, NovaCentrix show their tools, including their PulseForge equipment that can sinter printed metallic conductive ink quickly and in room atmosphere, along with the accurate control systems and software enabling full control of the results. NovaCentrix also discuss their materials and how they help companies scale up to production, including their work with partners and new announcements. Learn more at www.novacentrix.com.

Nearly 3000 technology industry audiences and about 200 exhibitors convened at the Santa Clara convention center in silicon valley for the world’s largest emerging technology show hosted by IDTechEx, the leader in emerging technology research, consulting and events. The 2014 event featured Printed, Organic and Flexible Electronics, Wearable Technology, Graphene, Internet of Things, Super Capacitors, 3D Printing, Energy Harvesting and Storage among the topics at the conference and trade show. The event attracted attendees from 38 countries, featured over 215 presentations, over a dozen masterclasses taught by IDTechEx analysts and industry experts as well as networking events. The show floor also featured a Demonstration Street that showcased state of the art products and technologies from 45 companies, the Manufacturing Street showed products, processes and manufacturing equipment and offered attendees the opportunity to immerse themselves into the world of emerging technologies, to learn and conduct business. Mr Vijay Ullal, semiconductor industry leader, formerly President and COO of Fairchild Semiconductor and former Group President of Maxim Integrated, together with IDTechEx Chairman Dr. Peter Harrop, inaugurated the show and welcomed the attendees. Dr. Khasha Gaffarzadeh, head of consulting at IDTechEx takes us on a tour of the show floor.
IDTechEx is the leader in emerging technology research, intelligence, consulting and events such as this one that just concluded in Santa Clara, California. For additional information please reach them via http://www.idtechex.com
Guillaume Chansin (@GChansin) is one of the analysts from IDTechEx. We meet him in Santa Clara where the company is holding their annual US event. We talk about what we will see during the conference and why printed electronics can help make better wearable devices. He also explains printed sensors, flexible displays, and why we will not see flexible LCD anytime soon.
Dr Khasha Ghaffarzadeh, the Head of Consulting at IDTechEx discuss the printed electronics, graphene, and supercapacitor industries. Khasha looks at the potential but also some of the challenges facing graphene and draws parallels with the CNT world. Khasha defines the broad and diverse printed electronics industry and explains how there is a wide spectrum of commercial maturity.
