SGIA Symposium Explores the Shape of Things to Come

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Join SGIA at the 2012 Printed Electronics & Membrane Switch Symposium (Las Vegas, October 18–19), where industry expert, publisher and consultant Mark Fihn will delve into the increasingly broad spectrum of printed electronics — including displays, photovoltaics, sensors, batteries, logic and various novel advancements.

“One of the lessons learned about creating flexible displays, is that if the display is flexible, it’s desirable for other components to also be flexible,” said Fihn. “Accordingly, the focus in the industry has shifted a bit — such that devices are being developed that are somewhat simpler than displays. The industry has shifted from development of ‘flexible displays’ to implementation of ‘flexible electronics’.”

His opening keynote presentation, “The Shape of Things to Come — Interacting Within the World of Printed Electronics,” will highlight challenges for application, both technological and market-driven, as well as the enormous opportunities presented by several large market needs.

In addition to this in-depth talk, the Symposium educational program is stacked with the most relevant industry information in the form of invaluable presentations and panel discussions, including:

  • “Inkjet Inroads in Printed Electronics”
  • “Rapid Prototyping of Capacitive Touch Keypads”
  • “Controlling Silver Migration in PTF Circuitry”
  • “Printed Batteries and Their Applications”
