Printed electronics defining the future at electronica 2018


OE-A exhibition and sessions in Munich, Germany at November 13-16

Organic and printed electronics stands for a revolutionary new type of electronics, which are thin, lightweight, flexible, robust and produced at low cost. These characteristics enable new applications in various industries.
Combining the best of both worlds
Printed electronics can replace a lot of conventional electronic features but can also compliment classical electronics. Hybrid printed electronics combines printed functionality with conventional electronic components with the aim to use the best of both worlds: Large area flexibility of printed electronics and high-performance of conventional electronics. This enables the realization of relatively complex electronic products with a short time to market. A lot of classical electronics producers are now integrating these new concepts into their designs, thereby maximizing the use of installation space, improving the designs and enabling HMI's that are more intuitive and adapted to the human requirements.
OE-A sees electronica as a suitable platform to further increase the awareness of what printed electronics can (and already does) bring the classical electronics industry. OE-A’s exhibition booth – Hall A1 Stand 152 – at electronica 2018, September 13-16 will represent its members and the printed electronics industry as well as showcase various printed electronics applications and products. 
Thin - Lightweight - Flexible: Organic and Printed Electronics for the Individualized Mass Market  
OE-A is hosting the session “Thin - Lightweight - Flexible: Organic and Printed Electronics for the Individualized Mass Market” (attendance is free of charge), spread over two days:  

  • November 14 (14:30-17:40h), focused on “Automotive Applications”
  • November 15 (14:30-17:20h), focused on “Production of Future Electronics”  

 At the PCB & Components Market Place in Hall A1 (Stand 263), various high-level speakers – all of which are OE-A member – ranging from institutes to companies will present their interesting printed electronics technologies and products which can be applied in various industry sectors. PolyIC, for example, will refer to flexible touch sensors for innovative HMI solutions, while OSRAM OptoSemiconductor will discuss LED and opto semiconductors in future mobility concepts.
Visit the OE-A in Hall A1 at Stand 152 and attend our sessions at the PCB & Components Market Place in Hall A1 (Stand 263) – we are looking forward to seeing you there!
