IDTechEx Berlin 2015
Bottle

This is a fully functional circuit with multiple components that was created to demonstrate our ability to create circuits on 3D objects.

Logo

This is a 3D structure printed in wax with inkjet to demonstrate our ability to create 3D structures as well as 2D structures.

Nosecone

This is a 3D printed nose cone where we turn around the normal electronic circuit sequence. Here we started with a 3D FDM part with recesses for electronic components.The components were then placed into the recesses and finally the interconnects were printed using PE’s 3D circuit printer. This demonstrates our ability to print on 3D objects.

Graphene

This is a functional screen-printed Graphene circuit.

This demonstrates our ability to print very challenging materials.

Ceramic tile

This is a digitally printed functional energy harvesting circuit using a silver harvesting coil printed on a ceramic tile. RF energy lights up the LEDs.

Strain gauge

This is a printed strain gauge. It is nanoparticle silver on our PEL Nano P60 paper. This demonstrates our basic inkjet expertise, and ability to create structures are flexible and that react to being flexed.

Graphene EL

This is another functional Graphene circuit. We did this for the Cambridge Graphene Centre. The Electroluminescent display is driven by an inkjet printed Graphene conductor layer.

Copper fabric

This is a flexible LED display circuit of copper on PET using the CIT process.

We have access to the CIT process through our partnerships.

Suit

This is a wearable suit developed with Cutecircuit as part of a TSB funded project. This is a demonstrator of our ability to make large format Printed Electronics. Here we embedded conventional electronics with wearable elements. Each of the nodes was a 6 axis accelorometer with a wireless comms module communicating in real time.

Electrochromic

This is a fully functional Electrochromic display. This demonstrates our ability to incorporate many different elements together; printed interconnects, flexible displays, standard components, printed ribbon cables, and standard cabling.

Film

This is a long sheet of circuits printed on a Roll-to-Roll system. This demonstrates our ability to create Printed Electronics by the kilometre.

Still0008

This is a close-up of the Neltex fabric from NEL that we use for our fabric displays. This shows how it is a true fabric circuit with every fibre of the circuit being fully coated with highly conducting metal.
