BURR RIDGE, Illinois, June 23, 2009 –Where do organic and printed electronics stand? Which applications will be launched over the next several years? Which production processes and materials are needed? Which technological hurdles need to be overcome? The new, expanded version of the OE-A Roadmap for organic and printed electronics provides answers to these questions.
GSI Technologies, a leader in printed electronics manufacturing, has provided printed displays for the newest release of the OE-A demonstrator. “We are excited about the continuing evolution of printed electronic technologies and assisting our partner companies in bringing these ideas to commercialization” says Jack Kraemer – GSI Technologies’ President / COO.
“The Roadmap and the technical projects are central themes of the OE-A, and a constantly expanding group of companies from Europe, North America and Asia collaborate intensively on these topics. Since LOPE-C is the internationally leading conference and exhibition, it is the perfect venue for unveiling these results.” says Wolfgang Mildner, Managing Director, PolyIC and Chairman of the Board of the OE-A.
The Roadmap as well as numerous new demonstrators will be introduced by the OE-A for the first time at LOPE-C – the Large-area, Organic and Printed Electronics Convention – which will take place June 23rd through the 25th, 2009 in Frankfurt, Germany. Gordon Smith – GSI Technologies CTO – will be presenting on “Recent Success in Manufacturing Printed Electronic Devices” at the convention.
