From consumer electronics and packaging to the automotive industry, pharmaceuticals, energy and white goods, the latest printed electronics technology enables innovative products, such as touch sensors, flexible displays, solar cells, luminescent films and smart labels.
The Organic Electronics Association (OE-A) starts its 3-day annual Large area, Organic and Printed Electronics Conference (LOPEC) in Munich today. Well-being is one of the focus topics and covers a broad field of applications ranging from medicine and healthcare to sports and recreation.
During the OE-A General Assembly, held at the start of the event, Alan Hodgson, Chair, IEC Technical Committee (TC) 119: Printed electronics, has been invited to give an update on the work of IEC TC 119 and IEC TC 124: Wearable electronic devices and technologies.
Hodgson will also give a presentation on standardization, during the Encapsulation working group meeting, which will explain the work of IEC TC 47: Semiconductor devices, TC 119 and ISO TC 61/SC11: Plastics – products.
“Printed electronics has applications in a number of sectors including wellness, medical and healthcare, especially for wearable electronics as markets transition from hard devices in plastic to flexible and conformable electronics. It’s great to work with OE-A and have the opportunity to showcase our standardization work, which is helping to drive the development of this innovative industry”, says Hodgson.
