Enables interactive functionality in ultra-thin form factor
PragmatIC Printing Ltd, the pioneer in imprinted logic circuits, has completed the prototype printed electronic greeting cards for Hallmark subsidiary Tigerprint Ltd.
The £300k project was supported by grant funding from The Northern Way, a joint initiative between the three northern UK Regional Development Agencies. The prototypes demonstrate the viability of transistor logic circuits on flexible substrates, integrated into conventional greeting cards alongside other printed electronics technologies (such as conductive inks and thin film batteries), to create a dynamic flashing animation. This is achieved without materially increasing the thickness of the card, and without the complicated assembly required for greeting cards employing conventional electronics.
"The PragmatIC team have clearly delivered a compelling product concept based on their unique approach to printed logic. We look forward to seeing these and other innovative product concepts become a commercial reality," said Mark Boyden,Technical Manager at Tigerprint.
Scott White, Chief Executive Officer of PragmatIC Printing, commented "This success validates our approach of working closely with customers to apply novel printed electronics technologies to proven, real-world applications."
