Fitness trackers, smart pharmaceutical packaging, adhesive solar films or steplessly dimmable windows: These are just a few examples of the applications that will be combined under the new focus topic Smart Living. LOPEC, the international exhibition and conference for the printed electronics industry, will thereby demonstrate the innovative opportunities that printed electronics offers to a wide variety of industries. The next LOPEC will take place from 24 to 26 March 2020.
Sun Chemical (Parsippany, New Jersey) will exhibit its portfolio for functional, industrial and specialty print applications suitable for a broad range of market sectors at InPrint 2019, in Munich, Germany from 12 to 14 November on stand 246 in Hall A6.
Brewer Science, Inc. (Rolla, Missouri) announced its participation at SEMICON Taiwan, the country’s largest annual microelectronics event, to be held 18-20 September 2019, at TWTC Nangang Exhibition Center in Taipei. In addition to showcasing its offerings in Booth N0262, Brewer Science is presenting at and sponsoring the SiP Global Summit 2019, a key programme on advanced packaging being held in conjunction with the conference.
At the IAA 2019 in Frankfurt (12 to 22 September), Continental has unveiled the latest version of its Integrated Interior Platform (IIP). As a high-performance computer, this comprehensive solution for software and hardware provides the basis for interaction between humans and vehicles in the connected cockpit of tomorrow – and at the highest level of quality. In its cockpit demonstrator, the technology company showed how the IIP combines various displays, such as the instrument cluster and the centre console display, with Internet-based services to form a complete solution. The IIP is a milestone in the E/E architecture revolution, which is seeing in-car electronics move away from many individual control units to a few high-performance computers.
The way we deal with our own health is changing dramatically. What was previously discussed in a personal conversation with a doctor is increasingly shifting to "indirect" contact, for example via telemedicine. At the same time, more and more people rely on wearables for independent monitoring of medical parameters. The prerequisite for reliable data acquisition and transmission is a compact power supply in the smallest possible space. VARTA Microbattery's lithium-ion batteries with their high energy density and capacity have proven to be a reliable source of energy. The company, based in Ellwangen, Germany, will present its portfolio of lithium-ion batteries for medical applications and wearables on 11 September at the 35th Wearable Technologies Conference 2019 Asia in Bangkok, which takes place in conjunction with the Medical Fair Thailand, at booth WT113.
