Plastic electronics - opportunity or future of semiconductor industry?

Abstract:
In Wales, the Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating (WCPC) at Swansea University already has the know-how and facilities to print electronic circuits in the same way that paper is printed in a press, a radical departure from traditional methods for manufacturing circuit boards.

Dr Tim Claypole, Centre Director explains: "The WCPC was set up with the intention to offer businesses a way of developing the volume manufacture of products based on micro- and nanotechnology. In order to achieve this the WCPC has equipment dedicated to integrated manufacture by printing and offers a unique facility in the UK and Europe for the realisation of cutting-edge flexible printed electronics, displays, lighting and sensors - allowing, for example, the development of a roll up television or e-newspapers."
