Presentation Summary

Thinfilm has been a leader in the production of commercial printed memory and is now driving the development of fully integrated printed systems, with a particular focus on data- and sensor-related applications. This talk with discuss the company's commercial partnership with Bemis, one of the world's largest manufacturers of flexible packaging, introducing printed electronics to the packaging market. One cornerstone for Thinfilm's technical development is the integration of memory and logic, first demonstrated in 2011 in the Thinfilm Addressable Memory ™ in conjunction with PARC, A Xerox Company. The marriage of memory and logic is unlocking new opportunities to introduce electronics to areas they never before been cost-effective, such as consumer products, packaging, and other disposable goods. One example to be discussed in the talk is a printed sensor system will have a disruptive price point of some tens of cents, making it possible to provide digital sensing in market segments currently served only by chemistry-based labels.
