Successful Use of Current Generation Printed Electronic Devices - A Review of What Works Best Where

The Photonics and Plastic Electronics Knowledge Transfer Network have invited IPI Europe to facilitate a tutorial on 19th September in London.

The Photonics and Plastic Electronics Knowledge Transfer Network have invited IPI Europe to facilitate a tutorial on 19th September in London.

The event, which will held at The Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining in London, UK from 10 am on the 17th September 2009, will involve speakers including
David Corr of NTERA on ‘Applications using Nanochromics™ Displays’;
Richard Kirk of PolyPhotonix on ‘Implementing Printed Electronics for Displays and Lighting’;
Birte Surborg of RAKO Security Label on ‘Hybrid Solutions for Brand Protection’;
Mark Litecky of Soligie on Printed Electronics to achieve Commercial Products,
Lawrence Hogg of Faraday Knowledge on ‘Current Applications for Printed Electronics in Packaging’ and
Cathy Curling of Curling Consulting.

The speakers will cover the practical aspects of the underlying technologies, with examples of real Printed or Plastic Electronic solutions that enable applications, devices or components in the following areas:

o Flexible Displays & Signage
Small and large area devices that create new visual effects: e.g. a static or moving colour display, a scrollable image e.g. for advertising, promotional goods, toys & games, tickets, cards

o Printed Sensors & Controlled Release
Devices that sense something about a product’s environment, e.g. its location, temperature or condition. Patches that release chemical substances in a controlled way for Medical & Industrial Applications

o Smart & Interactive Products & Packaging
Products & packaging of all types that can be used to ‘interact’ & ‘communicate’ with consumers e.g. using printed RFID devices and wireless data exchange; or by making a sound

o Brand Protection & Anti-Counterfeiting
Devices that can be used to store some embedded code, data or unique surface feature to enable it to be identified and validated as a genuine article

o Energy Capture, Storage & Generation
Printed devices (e.g. solar, kinetic or piezoelectric) that can capture, store or generate energy that can be used to power printed and conventional products

In addition to hard & electronic copies of the presentations made, delegates will receive a complimentary copy of an IPI Europe programme members circulation document ‘The Printed Electronics Adoption Journal’ which summarises the latest advances in printed electronics technology and adoption.
