Traditional silicon integrated circuit (IC) production requires huge capital investment to keep up with the latest developments in technology, affordable now by only a handful of the largest device manufacturers. Increasing integration and mass production of standard ICs is the only way that these companies can continue to drive the cost per function down. However, this trend is going in the wrong direction for a future where we will be integrating a small amount of intelligence in trillions of everyday items. PragmatIC will describe how its FlexLogIC™ fab-in-a-box is creating a distributed and scalable production model for flexible ICs (FlexICs) that will revolutionise how smart solutions are fabricated.
