PragmatIC PragmatIC's technology is able to manufacture transistors on flexible substrates using a metal oxide semiconductor. The company is focusing on providing logic for a range of functionality and devices, predominately smart labels and RFID. Their technology is based on nanoimprint and materials are metal oxides. History In 2010, PragmatIC Printing acquired the printed electronics business of Nano ePrint, including its patented technology for planar nano-electronic devices that can uniquely be fabricated in a single layer of semiconductor via single-step imprint patterning. Nano ePrint was founded a few years before that and was a spin out from the University of Manchester university in the UK in 2007.
PragmatIC has extended this imprinting process to conventional thin film transistor designs and a variety of self-aligned structures. This approach allows a full range of device and circuit architectures to be printed in transparent, flexible semiconductors at micron and sub-micron scale.
In 2015 the company raised £6 million (about $9 million) from ARM, the low power semiconductor design company as a strategic investment.
