E Ink Further Strengthens Collaboration with Plastic Logic
The market for wearable technology will reach $70 billion by 2025, with medical, fitness and wellness expected to be the dominant sectors, according to IDTechEx. The always-on nature of E Ink technology combined with the flexible feature of Organic TFT are ideally suited for wearables, especially for clothing.
Breakthrough in mass production of flexible plastic displays
Plastic Logic has developed a new mass production-capable technology and manufacturing process in collaboration with the organic electronics specialists from BASF. To demonstrate this breakthrough, Plastic Logic has produced prototypes of two new mass producible 6" display products in 300dpi greyscale and 150dpi colour variants respectively.
Plastic Logic GmbH
This profile covers Plastic Logic GmbH, which was originally part of Plastic Logic Ltd before it was split into two companies in 2015 - FlexEnable in the UK and Plastic Logic GmbH in Dresden, Germany.
ISORG develop Organic Photo Detector (OPD) systems which are partly printed, with mass production beginning in late 2018 or early 2019. They are focusing on smart shelves and finger print scanners (small and large area).
Glass-free flexible plastic e-paper displays
Plastic Logic Flexible displays are now available from Review Display Systems. Plastic Logic manufactures flexible, glass-free electrophoretic active matrix displays. These displays are shatterproof, bendable and daylight-readable.

Event report: Electronic Display Conference 2016
IDTechEx gave a talk at the Electronic Display Conference in Nuremberg, Germany. The conference had more people than the previous edition and celebrated its 30th year, which reflects how important displays have become in our everyday life. The presentation from IDTechEx was on two disruptive technological trends in flat panel displays: quantum dots and flexible OLED.
Printed and organic electronics in healthcare
Printed, organic and flexible electronics is an industry that includes various components and technologies, from relatively simple electrochemical sensors to flexible X-ray detectors. From an end-user's point of view, the main advantages are disposability, large area, and conformability. In this article we focus on healthcare and review the wide range of devices targeted for medical applications.
