PV Nano Cell closes acquisition of DigiFlex

PV Nano Cell from Israel, an innovative producer of conductive digital inks, announced the closing of its acquisition of DigiFlex, a digital printer manufacturer. The all-stock transaction was valued at US$10M and represents 25% of PV Nano Cell on a fully diluted basis, post transaction. Additionally, certain shareholders of DigiFlex and its subsidiary, JetCU P.C.B. Ltd., committed to investing $1.1M in PV Nano Cell, of which $500 000 has already been invested, and an additional $600 000 is expected to close by the end of 2017.

innoLAE 2018 call for papers is now open

The call for papers is now open for the Innovations in Large-Area Electronics (innoLAE) conference taking place 23-24 January 2018, at the Wellcome Genome Campus in Cambridge, UK. Large-Area Electronics (LAE) is a new way of making electronics and includes printed, flexible, plastic, organic, and bio- electronics.

For wearable electronic devices, NIST shows plastic holes are golden

In science, sometimes the best discoveries come when you’re exploring something else entirely. That’s the case with recent findings from the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), where a research team has come up with a way to build safe, nontoxic gold wires onto flexible, thin plastic film. Their demonstration potentially clears the path for a host of wearable electronic devices that monitor our health.
