Plastic Electronics - Opportunity or Future of Semiconductor Industry

SpecialChem / Jun 10, 2008

Over the next 15 years, printed electronics is expected to transform the way we think about and use electronic goods such as mobile phones, display screens, lighting and even paper. Speaking at the Semiconductor 2K Conference in Cardiff, Dr Harry Zervos, Industry Analyst from IDTechEx says the move towards printed electronics is a natural progression in the search for products and technologies which are 'greener', more efficient and ultimately more cost effective to produce. "One of the primary advantages of Thin Film Transistor Circuits used in products such as 'take anywhere, read anywhere' electronic paper and solid state lighting that they offer a relatively low cost manufacturing solution for UK technology companies and greater flexibility for both the user and manufacturer when it comes to size, form factor and application architecture. At the same time we are expecting significant growth in this emerging area of semiconductor manufacturing, especially in inorganic photovoltaic technologies beyond silicon and display front plane technologies."
