What is Emerging Electronics and the Internet of Things?
Printable electronics is not an end in itself, but rather an enabling technology. The development of printable electronics
will deliver new and exciting hybrid electronic applications that incorporate the functional benefits of flexible
electronics but also the efficiency and durability of traditional electronics.
The Internet of Things represents an evolution in which objects are capable of interacting with other objects.
Hospitals can monitor and regulate pacemakers long distance, factories can automatically address production line
issues and hotels can adjust temperature and lighting according to a guest’s preferences, to name just a few examples.
Printable Electronics is aligned with this emerging technology through the opportunities that the printing of electronic
functionality and sensing brings to applications.
CPI is supporting the development of such components with a range of technology partners (including high growth
SMEs) and is doing this with a specialist equipment set and industrial expertise. CPI has the capability to integrate
printed electronics with conventional electronics to create new form factors for sensors, switches, power sources and
data communication that be more readily embedded into print, packaging and moulded products, thus creating new
smart products for the Internet of Things. The capability at CPI allows for the demonstration scale production of
products and samples, enabling customers to produce trial quantities for market testing and investment purposes.
