Bringing emerging technology knowledge to 5th grade children. Discussing printed electronics to drones.
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

The coolest product in the world is back, this time by Netronix, it's their ultimate E Ink device, it has better specs than last year's 13.3" Sony E-reader device as it runs a faster i.MX6 Solo Lite Android platform, and it can be sold significantly cheaper than the $1000 Sony device. Netronix is right now looking for distributors around the world and they are still optimizing the weight and performance just a little bit more before releasing this ultimate note taking and document collaboration device. Hopefully it won't be long and the ultimate Android APK for document notes real-time and deferred collaboration will be available, one that lets groups of lawyers collaborate on annotating a same court document, on that lets several students and teachers easily annotate and read large learning documents, one that easily enables note taking and stylus based creativity on top of text, in a connected way, as a side-kick to Laptop productivity. When this device is sold to mass markets below $500, even massively mass produced and sold below $300, things will change. For that E Ink also needs to drastically lower the price of the display, hopefully some big orders come in from Governments and from massively courageous brands who are ready to bring it to all people!
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.

Silver nanowire company Cambrios talks to IDTechEx about the ramp up of this type of transparent conductive film versus the incumbent technology Indium Tin Oxide ITO which is brittle and resistive over large areas. Cambrios is a 12 year old company that is one of the first to market with an ITO replacement. For more information see www.IDTechEx.com.
