12 October | Morning
An Introduction to Energy Harvesting, Energy Storage and Wireless Sensor Networks

09:00 - 12:00
ASTRI, 5/F Photonics Center, 2 Science Park East Avenue, Hong Kong Science Park

Leader

Dr.Peter Harrop
Chairman
IDTechEx Ltd

Energy harvesting is the use of technologies to generate electricity from the environment, which can be used to power electronics and electrics. Different technologies can be employed depending on the energy source. For movement, mechanical harvesters can be used (which can work from electrostatic, piezoelectric and electromagnetic movement), light, thermal, EM transmission or Human. Some versions are now even printed. This masterclass covers all the technologies involved, how they work, and appraisal of their strengths and weaknesses, relative costs and developments paths. The leading developers are given as are market needs and IDTechEx forecasts.

12 October | Afternoon
Printing Technologies and Materials for Printed Electronics

14:15 - 17:15
Conference 04, 2/F Lakeside 2, Hong Kong Science Park

Leader

Dr.Susann Reuter
Director
IDTechEx Ltd

The new electronics world of printed electronics can utilize any solution-based material including organic semiconductors, inorganic semiconductors, metallic conductors, nanoparticles, nanotubes and more. This technical masterclass looks at the full range of these different materials, comparing for each one the available chemistries, performance, cost, printability, lifetime and multiple other parameters. The impact of using different print techniques (inkjet, gravure, etc) and substrates (paper, plastic, glass, etc) are also considered.
 
In addition, we look in detail at the printing technologies, demystifying the how, where, why and what next, bringing the subject alive with many real world examples. We go through inkjet printing, gravure, flexo, litho, DPN, screen and other types assessing their relevance to printed electronics.

Who are the major suppliers of materials by type? What are the biggest material challenges? What are the latest emerging materials capable of achieving? What are the biggest issues with printing electronics? Who is using what and why? It is all covered here by experts in material development and printing technologies. From organic semiconductors to liquid silicon to quantum dots and inkjet printing to lithography- attend this masterclass to understand the full range of materials and printing processes, their strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and much more.

Displays will be one of the largest market segments in printed/organic electronics. Already 70% of the MP3 flash memory music devices use an OLED display but TVs are the now the target. However, OLEDs are just the tip of the iceberg with electroluminescent, electrophoretic and electrochromic displays with unique benefits being commercially used now. Within ten years we will also see another major development - conventional lighting being replaced with lighting that is laminar and flexible.

This masterclass, led by experts in the field, will guide you through the full range of technologies, market opportunities and challenges, and issues to be resolved. The IP situation will also be covered as will companies in the value chain, along with their positioning and strengths.
