Thin Film Transistors: pre-production prototyping programme

Centre For Process Innovation (CPI) : 12 March, 2015  (Company News)
SmartKem, supplier of Tru-Flex semiconductors, has announced an three-year collaboration programme with the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI), for the development of pre-production prototypes featuring semiconductor inks for the manufacture of ultra flexible thin film transistors (TFT). The three year agreement will explore the manufacture of unbreakable and foldable displays and electronics.
Thin Film Transistors: pre-production prototyping programme
SmartKem inks can produce transistors with outstanding electrical performance, physical flexibility and the chance to manufacture at room temperature onto any surface type.  As such, electronic TFT arrays can be printed at low cost with extremely high throughput, making tru-FLEX technology the leading candidate for the manufacture of new form factor consumer devices such as bendy smartwatch displays and foldable mobile phones.
 
“We have established the potential of the technology and proven its position as a total technology solution over competing TFT materials. Now in conjunction with our customers, we’re moving towards manufacturing pre-production demonstrators," said Steve Kelly, CEO of SmartKem.
 
SmartKem has successfully established its Tru-Flex semiconductor inks as an enabling technology for the manufacture of flexible electronics based products. In August 2014, SmartKem also announced the receipt of Series A funding from an investment syndicate including BASF Venture Capital, Finance Wales, Octopus Investments and Entrepreneurs Fund. This new industrial partnership with CPI will directly support SmartKem in fast-tracking its pre-production development.
