re: Printed electronics pilot line starts production

For printed electronics to succeed, large manufacturing companies, with both high volume, roll-to-roll film handling capability, and electronic materials knowhow, will have to get seriously engaged. Companies like DuPont, 3M, and the like.

oh and if you follow the stock markets much theres "America's co-called fiscal cliff" potentially looming, so while it might currently cost you 1.60 US dollars to the pound right now to help build some more infrastructure in Redcar, think of it as a wise long term investment as "the Office for National Statistics kept its estimate for 1 per cent growth in the third quarter unchanged. This helped the pound rise to nearly 1.24 euros, although sterling slipped to 1.60 US dollars." Read more: " think of all these future "1.60 US dollars to the pound" returns when you cash it in, a far better return on investment in mainland UK than the Irish EU price you would get later there... :grin:

"Typically, for printed electronics geometries and performance can be far behind that of silicon-based integrated circuits, but production costs are also considerably lower." while its apparently true about the current "geometries and performance" are lower, it may be not too long before that potentially improves a lot if this University of Glasgow program progress is achieved and integrated in to the UK+EU roll to roll commercial processes the UK has had its commercial "UK Plastic Electronics Show" for a few years now see true its a little DUFF as an advert right now ,but they are actually making commercial stuff, and they know the moneys in the penny's per product markets right now, as they progress through OLED R2R lighting/screen's and later ramp up Nano Dot LED colour displays etc. and there UK+EU collaborations EU project improving plastic electronics yields in R2R production Sara Ver-Bruggen - 11 May 2012 so interesting progressions going on, theres also the plasics/Two-photon polymerisation (2PP) 3D nano printing related project Austrian researchers have fabricated plastic microstructures with nanoscale features at a greater speed than ever before. so perhaps the US and Chinese/Japan tech companies should put some cash and help build some more infrastructure in Redcar, Northern England sooner rather than later as this takes off, as they then get to take advantage of the many UK uni's industrial programs doing nano fluidic's,Graphene etc
