Printed Electronics in Korea

Printed Electronics in Korea

IDTechEx recently visited Korea to learn more about the progress with Printed Electronics there. Japan is well know for its printed electronics activities, from electronics companies such as Sony and Panasonic to paper and electronic companies such as Toppan Forms and Dai Nippon Printing. Korea as well as having major conglomerates involved in printed electronics, such as Samsung and LG, also has many smaller and start-up companies involved in...read more »

Thermex® Sensor Film Allows Engineers to Quickly Check & Correct Surface Temperature Variations in Heat Sinks

Thermex® Sensor Film Allows Engineers to Quickly Check & Correct Surface Temperature Variations in Heat Sinks

Since thermal  management is critical to heat sink performance, testing with Thermex® temperature distribution film has become a useful design and assembly quality control check. Thermex®, from Sensor Products Inc, is an economical thin sensor film that can be used in virtually any application to test and monitor heated contacting surfaces from 200° to 300°F (93° to 149°C). It can be used alone or in conjunction with Fuji Prescale®...read more »

Promise shown for replacing silicon in electronics

Promise shown for replacing silicon in electronics

That material, the focus of the 2010 Nobel Prize in physics, is graphene — a fancy name for extremely thin layers of ordinary carbon atoms arranged in a “chicken-wire” lattice. These layers, sometimes just a single atom thick, conduct electricity with virtually no resistance, very little heat generation — and less power consumption than silicon. With silicon device fabrication approaching its physical limits, many researchers believe graphene can provide...read more »

Coiled nanowires may hold key to stretchable electronics

Coiled nanowires may hold key to stretchable electronics

Researchers at North Carolina State University have created the first coils of silicon nanowire on a substrate that can be stretched to more than double their original length, moving us closer to incorporating stretchable electronic devices into clothing, implantable health-monitoring devices, and a host of other applications. “In order to create stretchable electronics, you need to put electronics on a stretchable substrate, but electronic materials themselves tend to be...read more »

Printed Electronics – The money floods in

Printed Electronics – The money floods in

Printed electronics is now seeing a surge in transactions in the form of orders, government and industry-funded development programs, acquisitions and company fund raising. Printed electronics is now an everyday phrase encompassing printed and potentially printed electronics and electrics. Some of it goes back a long way but it is now at a tipping point because of a sharp improvement in performance, price and repertoire. For example, printed, light...read more »
