Progress at Artificial Muscle

Progress at Artificial Muscle

IDTechEx recently visited Artificial Muscle in Sunnyvale, CA. The company develops, designs and manufactures actuators, sensors, and power generation components based on electroactive polymers. The main focus of the company today is on haptic feedback systems - i.e. systems that give the user a physical response to the touch. Conventionally, metal dome switches are employed in keypads, for example, to provide sensory feedback to the user when something has been pressed. However, with the move to touch screen displays, the haptic response is lacking.

Printed power at Printed Electronics USA 2009

Electronics and electrics are becoming ubiquitous, the devices appearing on and in higher and higher volume products including e-labels and e-packaging. This calls for different forms of battery, capacitor and other energy storage because priorities such as environmental credentials, thinness and compatibility with energy harvesting (eg. solar cells) come to the fore alongside life and cost.

Stanford-led research helps overcome barrier for organic electronics

Stanford-led research helps overcome barrier for organic electronics

Electronic devices can't work well unless all of the transistors, or switches, within them allow electrical current to flow easily when they are turned on. A team of engineers has determined why some transistors made of organic crystals don't perform well, yielding ideas about how to make them work better.
