The most important factor here is the fact that it is commercially viable. Sometimes companies make remarkable technology, only to realize that there is virtually no market application potential, or the production costs are too high to do any good. Matt - http://www.eezytrade.co.uk

I think this Thinfilm prototype could herald a change in how we interact with electronics and the internet in the near future. Though it seems like the memory that it can hold is small, it could potentially hold a lot of promise, as it will only take a couple of more years before the engineers design a working model that allows us to test its functions. I am excited to see how it will work! Kathy - http://www.cartridgeshop.co.uk

@ docdivakar Yes, we will be there. Please stop by or call our San Francisco office if you want to connect before then. http://www.thinfilm.se/contact. When you look at cost per function, adding sensors and other elements makes for a very exciting future!

@Jennifer Ernst: I agree... in addition to the cost, bigger advantages for the printing process also come from other structures one can print including sensing elements. Is ThinFilm Electronics going to be at the PE show in December in Silicon Valley? I would like to stop by... Dr. MP Divakar

The 20-bit memory sells for five cents. Within the next three to five years, three to six cents for advanced systems isn't hard to envision. It's the beauty of printing. Low capex, high materials utilization, high volume. - Jennifer Ernst, Thin Film Electronics

It will interesting to see how these technogies compete in cost. For 20 bits of memory, it's hard to imagine a semiconductor manifestation. As soon as you add nfc, memory, processing and anything else, a little semiconductor grain is likely to win the cost war.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
