AGFA printed electronics PEDOT:PSS conductive polymer and nano silver ink, interview with IDTechEx

Posted by – January 12, 2015

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

Netronix shows 13.3″ flexible E Ink digitizer sub-400gr i.MX6 Solo Lite Android note taker

Posted by – January 8, 2015

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!
