More demonstrators at Printed Electronics Europe 2011

As part of its initiatives, the Northern Way sponsored a competition that started about 2 years ago, which required companies to come up with proposals for making printed electronics demonstrators with technologies currently available. Out of all the proposals, 11 were selected and out of those, 8 were funded in order to continue their development.

Printed electronics is now about doing business

Printed electronics is now about doing business

Excitingly, the subject has now moved beyond peer reviewed academic papers to doing business. The largest European event on the subject will again be Printed Electronics Europe in Düsseldorf Germany in April 5-6 (www.IDTechEx.com/peEurope) and it will be all about who can sell to whom and how this powerful enabling technology can transform society for the better as well as creating wealth.

3D printing method advances electrically small antenna design

While most electronic components benefit from decreased size, antennas—whether in a cell phone or on an aircraft—suffer limitations in gain, efficiency, system range, and bandwidth when their size is reduced below a quarter-wavelength.

Diesel-electric submarines to be tracked by unmanned marine vessels

Diesel-electric submarines to be tracked by unmanned marine vessels

Diesel-electric submarines are difficult to track as they are virtually silent and can stay submerged for extended periods of time. As the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) attempts to counter this imposing threat through the Anti-Submarine Warfare Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) project, multiple companies have received design contracts for the proposed vessel as the initial phases of the project get underway.
