In mold electronics: the next frontier for transparent conductive film

In mold electronics: the next frontier for transparent conductive film

In Mold Electronics is making a commercial comeback. The behind-the-scenes interest in IME remains robust. The first wave of products are close to market launch, the value networks are being enhanced, volume manufacturers are more engaged than ever, and the material set is transitioning beyond conductive inks to include transparent conductive films, sensors, actuators, and so on. Overall, we expect 2017/18 to the years when IME applications finally grow after years of on and off starts.

Can commercialisation of VR jump-start the haptics industry?

Can commercialisation of VR jump-start the haptics industry?

Haptics are key technologies found as an essential feature enhancing the user experience in many very familiar products today. Whether as notification provision in a vibrating smartphone, tension building in a video game controller, or input confirmation in an industrial scanner, haptics technologies have now reached billions of electronics devices.

Blood, sweat and tears: New ways to monitor glucose levels in diabetes

People with diabetes have traditionally self-monitored their glucose levels using disposable biosensors and invasive sampling techniques. While this industry has been one of the success stories of the printed electronics industry, worth around $6 billion today, profitability is falling as government reimbursement models are changing and strain is put on both consumers and manufacturers.

Stretchable electronics: no longer a solution looking for a problem

Stretchable electronics: no longer a solution looking for a problem

The electronic industry is in the midst of a major paradigm shift: novel form factors are emerging, ranging from the introduction of limited stretchability, through to ultra-elastic and conformable electronics. This transfiguration has been in the making for more than a decade now, but it is only now that it is beginning to make a substantial commercial impact.

RFID Sensors: Filling a Real Need or Hoping for the Best?

RFID is booming - it now accounts for the largest number of silicon integrated circuits made of one particular type. But in addition to over 20% growth, there is much more to come. RFID is moving beyond wireless identification alone to wireless sensing of parameters such as temperature, humidity and much more.

Will Amazon Go win the war between computer vision and RFID in retail?

Will Amazon Go win the war between computer vision and RFID in retail?

The scenario that shopping without checkout lines has been described multiple times since the introduction of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology and many people believed if that could come true, it must be RFID that enables it. However, Amazon Go will demonstrate to us that other emerging technologies are going to realize it first, due to the significant improvement of deep learning, computer vision and sensor fusion, as announced on 5th December 2016. This leads us to consider which technology will be the future in the retail industry: computer vision, or RFID?

New directions for the aerogel market

Alternatives to silica aerogel panel and blanket composites are beginning to gain traction. Silica aerogel granule and powder products are becoming more pronounced as progressively more companies emerge. Meanwhile polymer aerogels are a different class of the material, which can have the potential to act as interesting alternatives to traditional plastic and composite products.
