Barrier films and thin film encapsulation: key technology, trends
Flexible and foldable high-performance barrier or encapsulation technology had long represented a technology challenge. The industry spent a decade and a half optimizing the approaches and the processes to achieve large-area production-grade results. The development however has not ended. Indeed, the commercial journey towards flexible and foldable devices is only just beginning. As such, the development of flexible barrier technologies still has far to travel.

The Evangelists and Pragmatists in the race to augment the world
At the Augmented World Expo (AWE) 2017 last week IDTechEx analyst James Hayward began to subconsciously position each company and individual that he spoke to on a scale between two extremes, as explained in this article.
Stretchable electronics: everything you need to know
Stretchable Electronics is a term that conceals great diversity. Indeed, it is an umbrella term that refers to a whole host of emerging electronic materials, components and devices that exhibit some degree of mechanical stretchability.
In mold electronics: the next frontier for transparent conductive film
In Mold Electronics is making a commercial comeback. The behind-the-scenes interest in IME remains robust. The first wave of products are close to market launch, the value networks are being enhanced, volume manufacturers are more engaged than ever, and the material set is transitioning beyond conductive inks to include transparent conductive films, sensors, actuators, and so on. Overall, we expect 2017/18 to the years when IME applications finally grow after years of on and off starts.
