Printed electronics to be featured at productronica
Key personnel from the printed electronics industry are coming together at productronica and will be giving technical presentations in Hall B3 on November 11. Real products and demonstrations of printed electronics technology will be presented on the LOPEC and OE-A exhibition stand - B3.141.
International speakers will present the various aspects and latest developments in printed electronics in the Innovation Forum at productronica (Hall B3) on November 11. Two sessions will cover the topics "Printed Electronics: Future Technology for Daily Life" and "Printed Electronics: Technologies & Applications". The forum's focal point on printed electronics is organized by the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association), a working group within VDMA.
LOPEC, the International Exhibition and Conference for Printed Electronics, will also be present at productronica. Together with the OE-A, the LOPEC team will present products, prototypes and demonstrations of printed electronics. Examples of organic and printed electronics applications include packaging that becomes intelligent due to ultra-thin electronics, a luminescent book box with integrated printed luminous surfaces and touch applications for the automotive industry. These examples will give visitors a preview of what to expect at the upcoming LOPEC, which takes place April 5–7, 2016 at the ICM - Internationales Congress Center München in Munich.
The OE-A sessions at productronica will examine the capabilities of printed electronics: Dr. Thomas Bickl from Heliatek, for example, will explain the potential of organic solar films as an urban energy source. Innovative touch and gesture solutions based on transparent, conductive films will be presented by Dr. Wolfgang Clemens from PolylC. Furthermore, Dr. Octavio Trovarelli from Plastic Logic will explain the advantages of printed electronics to enable Large-Area Organic Robust Imager for X-Ray Sensing.
