Printed Electronics Augments Device Flexibility, All you need to Know

Printed Electronics have been attached to electronic media to enhance the device’s flexibility. Whenever we think of the term printed in the context of electronics,  the first significant thing that comes to mind is the rigid print electrical boards. The printed electronics have been the foundation of electronic devices for decades. The recent augmentation of the printed electronic devices suggests the urge to shift to an alternative approach.

The label ensembles a self-powered, interactive smart sign that may be used as retail applications. It contains three main printable electronics technologies: a power source, energy storage, and a display, along with a membrane switch. Where does the power generate from in the devices.

The power is obtained from the Epishine printed photocells that get optimized for efficiently transmitting energy. Epishine has come up with a sleek demonstration device that is comprehensive and coherent at the same time. The users to access the device press the printed membrane switch to activate the dynamic display. The key aspect of making the device flexible is that its foundation, power,  interconnect, and display are printed in the same way as the newspaper. The resulting devices will also be quite flexible to be shaped to match curved surfaces without any further efforts in the manufacturing process.

The three technologies involved in the making of the demonstration devices are not the only types of printed electronics available in the markets. Moreover, many technologies similar to the mentioned ones have been under research and development for more than a decade. The LOPEC Conference is being surveyed online this week and can furnish developers with access to numerous vendors and manufacturers working in the printed electronics field.
