This presentation will describe Qualcomm's experience developing value-added products using printed electronics technologies.
Today, we are on the brink of an extraordinary revolution where everything that benefits from a connection will have one.
This Networked Society is in real time will place many new requirements on us while opening up opportunities beyond our imagination. Those who have the ability to rethink, reinvent and innovate will be winners in this new value-creating ecosystem.
In the presentation "The power of touch - Exploring the real world web" Jan Hederen at Ericsson will present discuss and demonstrate our initial findings in creating a clickable world. In the Connected Print project Ericsson together with partners have explored the opportunities, challenges and market value to combine mobile networks, smartphones and printed electronics.
Flextronics responds to customer design requests that come from virtually every market segment associated with electrical and electronics manufacture. This places us in an ideal position to monitor market trends, one of which is the embedding of electronics into wearables; this creates some interesting challenges. In recognition of this Flextronics is investing into, and partnering to develop, new core technologies used in design and manufacturing processes in order to meet current and future demands within this industry.
This paper provides details of some of these technologies and challenges that will provide life-style and life-saving benefits with numerous use-cases that leverage latest advances in communications, flexible electronics, batteries and materials.
There are a number of products developed and deployed today for the medical, industrial and life style markets that will be shown.
Internet of things is a buzz word in the consultancy world but with RFID and items that might be even more realistic than the history of RFID has shown us. What kind of features are available and can be incorporated into items and packages and what will the future look like.
