re: Intel, Plastic Logic work on flexible tablet

Wow, this sounds like a fantastic innovation. It has its limitations sure, but the prototype has given quite a good start. It is not as heavy-duty as scanner, and it just looks cool. But I see it as an “on the go” scanner. I do not see its use in a full-fledged office. On the other hand, our smartphones can also take picture of a document and send it as attachment. I guess this PaperTab simply gives better resolution. Maybe in the future its developer, Plastic Logic, will tell us better benefits of this product. - http://www.hammerplastics.com

I can forsee a time when we will have multiple sheets of paper. Simply using a pencil, we can write things on them, fold them into an envelope and for 50 cents - mail it to anywhere in the world, regardless of the local power supply or network coverage. All joking aside, I love this advancement in technology, but do we have to use two of these to send an email with an attachment? No broken screens, but how dust proof or water resistant are they? I'm certain by the time these hit the market, a raft of difficult questions would have been asked and answered. Very nice job - I want one

@selinz, I agree with you. This will help us in getting rid of broken screens, one more advantage of this easy these flexible displays are easy to carry around.

I've read about flexible display technology off and on for quite a while, but I think this particular one is farther along than I've seen to date. I'd agree with you, Selinz, that using something like this to make our current devices more rugged would be a good application too. I'm just as intrigued by the idea of using the flexible electronics technology to make a flexible sheet of sensors, as the describe on their web site.

I see a more significant application in getting rid of broken screens by using a more compliant and tough screen. If that requires some flexibility in the display underneath, fine.

As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
