Peratech and Visionox to jointly develop integrated display
Visionox and Peratech have signed an MOU agreement and have started working on different integrations of Peratech's tactile-sensing solutions into Visionox's AMOLED displays to meet user needs for display-based interactive interfaces.
3D force touch remote control solution enables next generation HMI
Peratech and Humax have co-developed a 3D force touch remote control that utilises Peratech's unique Quantum Tunnelling Composite sensor technology.
Infi-tex emerged after Peratech Ltd entered administration. Infi-tex adopted intellectual property from Peratech around using QTC™ (Quantum tunnelling composite) materials in 'Soft-Switch' applications. Infi-tex is now continuing to explore opportunities around this technology.
Former Peratech CTO and VP joins Tangio Printed Electronics
Tangio Printed Electronics is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Westgarth-Graham as Head of Development.
Redux Labs use bending wave haptic feedback to create touch effects and sound on panels. They formed in 2013, adopting IP and personnel from precuresons Hiwave Technologies (after bankrupcy) and NXT.
Piezoresistive Sensors - Part 3 of 3
This final article in the three part series looks at emerging technologies in relation to piezoresistive sensors. It covers quantum tunnelling composite (QTC), interpolation for large area sensing, piezoresistive textiles and artificial skin.
Piezoresistive Sensors - Part 2 of 3
The second installment of this piezoresistive sensor series covers applications and markets. The third and final article will discuss the emerging technologies in this area.
Piezoresistive Sensors - Part 1 of 3
In the first of this three part series on piezoresistive sensors we look at the construction, manufacture and types of pressure and force sensors and the key players in these fields. In subsequent articles, we will investigate the applications and then emerging technologies in this space.
Peratech Limited enter administration
he company was established in 1996 to exploit QTC™ (quantum tunnelling composite) materials and now has worldwide patents for QTC™ Materials.
The future of printed piezoresistive sensors
Sensing is an increasingly important application in printed electronics, partly because printed sensors can enable new ways to interact with machines and smart devices. In this article, IDTechEx takes a closer look at a well-established printed sensor technology: printed piezoresistive sensors.
Printed sensors: an overview
There is an increasingly greater need for a wide choice of sensors to make objects smarter, safer and more responsive. Printing is the natural way to process wet inks and pastes, and it is therefore no surprise that printing has been used to make sensors for years. But there are new materials appearing, taking advantage of the progress that have been enabled by printed electronics. The article gives an overview of what is currently happening in the field of printed sensors. In particular, we will overview main trends in commercialising printed glucose sensors, force and pressure sensors, image and light sensors, gas sensors and temperature sensors. We will highlight key companies commercialising each printed sensor type.
Peratech creates fast-acting Electronic Nose using QTC technology
QTC™ materials change their resistance when a force is applied and, in this case, the polymer content of the composite swells when exposed to VOCs.
Printed Electronics at Peratech
Peratech is offering a novel and interesting ink that can change its resistance by as much as 16 orders of magnitude when pressed with a finger!
