New visions and creative concepts in the area of organic and printed electronics are what the OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association), a working group within VDMA, aims to promote in its annual OE-A Competition. Once again, there were numerous submissions coming from all corners of the world this year. The five best submissions were rewarded at LOPEC 2018, the international trade fair and conference for printed electronics, in Munich, Germany.
From OLEDs to intelligent packaging: From 13 to 15 March, LOPEC in Munich showcased groundbreaking developments in flexible electronics. The LOPEC Conference provided important stimuli for application, research and development. The topic of well-being was a recurring theme throughout exhibition, conference and supporting programme.
Peratech from the UK, a leader in 3D force-sensing technologies, continues to define the future of HMIs with the announcement of an active-matrix 3D force touch sensor that is integrated with a flexible OLCD, demonstrating how two disruptive technologies can work together to enable new applications.
