Printing electronics is becoming a mainstream industry

recently, new changes have taken place in the form of printing electronics, and thin-film electronic devices have also become products that can be printed. Japanese relief information company claims that smart card products (SMP) are the most potential printing electronic products. It not only has the characteristics of intelligence and mass production, but also allows customers to customize. These products can be used on the man-machine interface or connected to the network, and can also be integrated with the production environment. This means that printed electronics will open up a large number of new markets for the majority of users, such as the production of tapes for detecting pipeline cracks and problem signals. After all, leakage accidents often occur in pipelines across Alaska, underground pipelines of oil refineries and underground pipelines of power plants

of course, printing Electronics will continue to develop products in the form of tapes, wallpapers, posters, patches and packaging, rather than producing electronic equipment. Electronic companies (such as 3M) and relief printing companies that have started to produce patch and packaging products will have stronger market adaptability than large-scale computer and electronic communication enterprises and even chip manufacturers, and can meet the needs of more customers

popularization of intelligence

basically, we can see the changes of the whole society from the smart store 8, the experimental software of expert intelligence under the all Chinese Windows platform, the smart office and the smart home. In a word, intelligence has become the pursuit of the whole society. The US Army plans to use printed electronics to reduce the weight of soldiers' backpacks by two-thirds. In addition, the army will also provide soldiers with intelligent clothing to generate electricity, heat, cool, monitor important signals and act as a variety of antennas. Printed electronics can reduce costs, but it also uses more complex structures. These new structures often. How can we use computers and networking technology in our physical testing laboratories? It has better performance and higher fault tolerance than the traditional structure. Generally speaking, printed electronics are mostly used in fields that are not suitable for the use of traditional technologies

printing electronic technology

the greatest potential of this technology lies in its organic or organic/inorganic hybrid structure, because it often combines the lowest cost with the fastest printing technology, such as the water-based ink used in gravure printing, which can cure at a lower temperature. Inkjet printing is also a popular choice now, because it has a certain tolerance for uneven substrate and can change the program immediately. In addition to logic cards, memory cards and some small sensors, the contribution of the chip is relatively small, because it can help people save costs only when the system is very small

by comparing different devices using printed electronics, we can find that large-size devices are often more economical. For example, drivers, batteries, capacitors, resistors, photovoltaic meters and various sensors can be directly combined without the use of low reliability and expensive interconnection devices that must be used when connecting to the chip

however, button batteries and other limited products are the only ones that can have a significant impact on the existing technology. In the future, the traditional lighting industry will also be affected. At that time, the initial cost, installation cost and use cost of organic electroluminescent displays will rise sharply, but this will not happen until at least ten years later. The application of printed electronics and other electronic components is also very wide, because it can play a new role and create new markets, not only because it can replace the original solutions, but also because it can bring light to new production methods and emerging industries

great opportunities for printing electronics brought by substrate

the greatest opportunities for printing electronics are mainly reflected in flexible paper or polyester substrate, because they are the materials with the lowest cost and most suitable for mass production. For example, people can use them to produce smart labels, smart packaging, books, newspapers, signs, posters, billboards and other products. Compared with the traditional electronic and electrical products widely used today, the installation cost of flexible substrate is much lower

at the early stage of the development of the printing electronics industry, some technical experts predicted that the service life, performance and cost of printing electronics would affect the development speed of the industry. In addition, people's lack of imagination will also hinder the progress of the printing and electronic industry. The challenges brought by different types of electronic components are also diverse. Below we will mention RFID tags (combining thin-film transistor circuits with antennas) and different forms of thin-film solar cells to be launched in 2007/8

don't use the aiming telescope to inspect the smooth reflector. In any case, with the continuous maturity of the use method and the continuous improvement of the technical defects, people can design products at will and formulate a marketing plan with strong applicability. For example, people can use today's printing technology to produce table mats for McDonald's company and radio receivers for toys' R 'us, so as to reduce the weight and floor area of cars and confidential equipment used by the U.S. military

lessons learned from the competition of flexible electrophoretic displays

in 2007, the most explosive thing may be that plastic logic company plans to invest 10million US dollars to build a factory producing flexible electrophoretic displays in Dresden, Germany. This company will mainly produce flexible active matrix display which is specially used in e-reader products that can be read anytime, anywhere. It can be said that it is a microcomputer operated time indicator. It will adopt the unique production process of plastic logic and use the thin and powerful printed transistor backplane to produce an active matrix display, so that people can get a new reading experience close to paper reading, which is unmatched by other technologies

this financing is the largest venture capital in European history. Bandel Carano, manager of oak investment company, said, "plastic logic has developed the most advanced technology, which will change the way mobile media interact. This investment is in line with oak's principles. We believe that the handheld devices produced by plastic logic will revolutionize the way media interact with the audience."

Hermann Hauser, Amadeus' manager, commented: "from the very beginning, I have been very supportive of plastic logic company. I am very happy that the company can take the lead to turn plastic electronics into commercial products. With the help of a large amount of investment, plastic logic company can not only expand the production scale, but also create a new electronic industry for us. The products it produces will also make up for the shortcomings of existing chips."

while plastic logic is making great efforts to establish a flexible electrophoretic display production plant, Sony in Japan is also engaged in the same work. The large enterprise has started selling hard electronic monitors. However, it has fallen behind in the development of thin-film transistors for flexible substrates. Therefore, Sony has developed many patented technologies in 2006/7 and wants to participate in market competition. The new markets created by plastic logic and Sony (e-books, signs, military monitors, etc.) are enough to make them rich. Maybe they will eventually choose to carry out mass production in China, but we still don't know who this market belongs to

Xerox has closed its subsidiary that develops flexible electrophoretic displays, which will inevitably affect the future development of solar cells, ordinary batteries and many other electronic components. Moreover, it is clear that Xerox mistakenly believes that the two companies mentioned above will always win in the market competition. In fact, small companies like plastic logic can also be supported by some large enterprises. We can't say that any local manufacturer is sure to succeed in the print electronics market

we will discuss the above issues at the 2007 printed electronics Europe 2007. It is understood that this is an international technology event, which will be held in Cambridge, England from April 17 to 18 this year

the conference was attended by users, material and equipment manufacturers, investors, printing press and printing equipment manufacturers from all over the world, who jointly demonstrated the latest application direction and technological progress of printing electronics. The enterprises around Cambridge are even more open to visitors. They welcome people to visit the factory and learn about the latest products they have developed

in order to promote the development of the printing electronics industry, venture capitalists and strategic investors will also participate in the "printing electronics Investment Forum" hosted by the conference to communicate and match up with those enterprises that need investment. In order to show their scientific research achievements to the world, representatives from Kodak, sharp, University of Tokyo, plastic logic and other companies will also give keynote speeches. The issues they talked about involve not only technology, but also technology market. In order to promote the progress of the whole industry, a jury composed of experts will also commend and award the leading enterprises that have made outstanding achievements in the market

after successfully holding five global conferences with the same theme, IDTechEx hopes to make the 2007 European print Electronics Conference the largest and most important print Electronics Conference this year. We hope you can also be a member of this industry event - whether as a speaker, representative, exhibitor, media partner or expert consultant
