nanoTX‚07 to Feature Important Printed Electronics Summit

Dallas, TX | Posted on May 31st, 2007

After a successful Chicago inaugural conference in April, top minds in the emerging technology of printed electronics will hold a Summit at nanoTX‚07 October 3-4. „This is a world-class line-up of international speakers from commercial and academic innovators in thin film, organic, and printable electronics,‰ says Ray Pementel, the Summit‚s chair.

A broad range of industries are being transformed as never before by these rapidly advancing micro- and nanotechnology developments, including aerospace, chemicals, consumer goods, electronics, food & beverage, medical devices, packaging and semiconductors. The audience will include senior executives from the corporate world, and institutional venture capital executives will also be present. "The real promise of printed electronics is in the inherent lower capital requirements and unit manufacturing costs compared with the traditional photolithography processes used in silicon-based electronics,‰ said Pimentel.

In much the same way that the printed word had such a profound impact on the world beginning in the 15th century, printed electronics now has the potential to revolutionize electronics and manufacturing through innovative advances in equipment, processes, and materials. "Advances in printed electronics are being driven by the unprecedented convergence of industries that have never before been so intricately linked, including semiconductors, aerospace, electronics, packaging, printing and consumer goods,‰ echoed Peter Balbus, a recognized expert in nanotechnology commercialization.

The exciting future of printed electronics is that it will enable a wide range of next-generation products including photovoltaics, batteries, and fuel cells; medical diagnostic and therapeutic applications; radio frequency identification (RFID) tags and other components; smart cards, smart labels, and smart packaging; lighting; display applications such as flexible displays, advertising and point-of-purchase displays, and components for high-end LCD and OLED displays.

Perhaps the most ongoing area of technological debate to be addressed during the Summit will be whether ink-jet printing or conventional analog graphic arts processes such as screen printing, gravure, offset printing and flexography will prevail. There are strongly held opinions on both sides of the argument.

The Printed Electronics Summit continues the work begun in Chicago to bring all these industries together in one common forum to discuss the factual state of the art in printed electronics and identify the technological and business hurdles to be solved next. The aim is always to separate hype from reality and identify where the real opportunities are emerging from a product and market development perspective.

NanoTX‚07 means business, and succeeds by working closely with Industry, Capital, Governments, Universities and R&D labs ( http://www.nanotx.biz ). Featured are the major four co-locating Expos: Defense/Homeland Security/Aerospace,

BioMed/Health Science/Nanohealth,

Energy/Chemical/Environment,

Semiconductor/MEMS/NEMS.

Trends/Finance/Investing are also thoroughly covered, and featured this year are one-on-one sessions with VCs and other investors.
