intelliFLEX White Paper Series
Based on Member stories, best practices and forward thinking
As an exclusive benefit to intelliFLEX Members, we are developing a growing number of white papers about applications for printable, flexible and wearable electronics in various industry verticals that Members can access through the intelliFLEX Knowledge Base:
Digital transformation in the packaging/retail supply chainIn October 2017, the intelliFLEX Innovation Alliance and PAC Packaging Consortium through their joint intelliPACK program convened a Get Smart Summit. This one-day event gathered decision-makers from across the supply chains for packaging and retail, as well as for the printable and flexible electronics (FHE) required to add intelligence to packaging. This report draws on the Summit’s presentations and discussions to explore how and why packaging companies, brand owners and retailers must work with each other and with FHE partners to create a new and digitally driven way of doing business.

Printable and Flexible Electronics Enabled Intelligent Buildings: New Functions, Improved Performance and Optimized Control
The modern commercial building is morphing into an intelligent building at a rapid pace. Technologies large and small are bringing sensors, analytics and controls that will improve efficiency, services, and occupant comfort and safety. In this paper, we examine the roles PE can play to evolve the function and operation of commercial buildings. We focus on the major components of building automation systems: Lighting, Heating, Ventilation Heating and Air Conditioning (HVAC), Fire, and Safety.

Printable and Flexible Electronics Applications in the Connected Home
For years, the concept of the connected home has been forwarded on the premise of providing the typical homeowner with greater comfort and convenience. This isn’t an inaccuracy, but the greatest appeal of the connected home, and driver for the market adoption of related technologies, is the cost savings that can be realized. In this paper, we explore how printable and flexible electronics can substantially reduce the cost and complexity of adding the functions and the intelligence necessary to create a truly connected home, as well as yield the operational cost savings that have a direct impact on a family’s bank account.
