CPES2017Recap by EP&T
CPES2016At the 2016 Canadian Printed Electronics Symposium (CPES2016), Stephen Law, editor of media sponsor Electronic Products & Technology (EP&T), spoke with several attendees about emerging applications and new products using printable and flexible electronics in verticals ranging from fashion and healthcare, to wearables and smart packaging.
CPES2015In the spring of 2015, the CPEIA was less than a year old, but we jumped in with both feet with the 2015 Canadian Printed Electronics Symposium (CPES). In these videos, Electronic Products & Technology (EP&T) editor Stephen Law speaks with CPES organizers, attendees and sponsors about the CPEIA and the future of the industry sector in Canada.
NovaCentrix revolutionizes the Printed Electronics industry with its new Metalon(R) ICI copper Ink and the PulseForge(R) line of processing tools. This sample was printed with a standard desktop printer, but the same can be done with industrial printers at high speeds. The PulseForge line of tools are designed to process a moving web of printed circuits at hundreds of feet per minute and keep up with nearly any printing technology.

The conductive ink industry is still in search of the next big thing. Indeed, the prevalent strategy is now to have as broad a product portfolio as possible, seeding multiple nascent markets, garnering as much as customer feedback as possible, and establishing value networks early on. In this webinar we will discuss the latest developments in the following sectors whilst outlining the latest product/material innovations.
RFID is booming – it now accounts for the largest number of silicon integrated circuits (ICs) made of one particular type. But in addition to over 20% growth over the next few years, there is much more to come. RFID is moving beyond wireless identification alone to wireless sensing of parameters such as temperature, humidity and much more. Interest in RFID Sensors has risen greatly over the last two years, with over 40 companies now supplying RFID sensors in addition to resellers, integrators and those providing software solutions, according to a study from IDTechEx Research titled “RFID Sensors 2017-2027”. New RFID sensors today have been enabled by a new breed of built-for-purpose ICs, which made prior types of RFID sensor limited in performance and expensive. Combined with innovations in flexible batteries, printed sensors and antennas and wider deployment of RFID reader infrastructure, the opportunity for RFID sensors has moved into focus.
