Abstract:
The OE-A will introduce the new, fourth edition of the OE-A Roadmap for Organic and Printed Electronics and new Demonstrators at LOPE-C - the Large-area, Organic and Printed Electronics Convention - to be held June 28th through 30th, 2011 at Messe Frankfurt, Germany. The new version of the OE-A Roadmap provides the current status and trends in applications and technologies in organic and printed electronics. The fourth edition of the OE-A Brochure includes member company profiles, competencies, and copious information about the industry association, an OPV powered flashlight as well as a summary of the new OE-A Roadmap.

Light Up Your World With Organic and Printed Electronics

Frankfurt/Main, Germany | Posted on June 16th, 2011

Initial products based on organic and printed electronics - thin, light-weight, flexible, and inexpensive to produce - are already on the market. The OE-A, the leading international industry association for organic and printed electronics, supports its members and this emerging field by providing an information platform, initiating technical cooperation and by keeping the public informed about this new technology.

New Give-away Demonstrator

‘Organic electronics you can touch' are once again featured in the new OE-A brochure. Every issue includes an OPV-powered flashlight. This credit card sized flashlight is an impressive example of this emerging technology and is part of the OE-A demonstrator project. More than 10,000 samples have been produced by OE-A members Risø DTU and Mekoprint. The small flashlight tangibly demonstrates the possibilities that organic photovoltaics (OPV) have to offer in terms of scalability, miniaturization, adaptability, manufacturability, integration, complexity and high technical yield.

New Roadmap

The updated, fourth edition of the OE-A Roadmap for Organic and Printed Electronics offers an overview of future product generations as well as requirements for materials and technologies. Fundamental challenges on the path to mass production - "Red Brick Walls"- have also been identified.

"The Roadmap and the accompanying technical projects are central themes of the OE-A, and our continually growing membership from Europe, North America, Asia and Australia actively collaborates on these topics. Since LOPE-C is the internationally leading conference and exhibition on organic and printed electronics, it is the perfect venue for presenting the results of the last two years", says Wolfgang Mildner, Chairman of the Board of the OE-A and Managing Director, PolyIC.

The new OE-A Roadmap will be discussed in a keynote address, at the exhibition as well as during a press conference at LOPE-C.

About Organic and Printed Electronics Association
The OE-A (Organic and Printed Electronics Association) is a working group within the German Engineering Federation (VDMA) and was founded in December 2004. The OE-A is the leading international industry association for organic and printed electronics and represents the entire value chain of this emerging industry. Our members are world-class global companies and institutions, ranging from R&D institutes, component and material suppliers to producers and end-users. More than 180 companies from Europe, North America, Asia and Australia are working together to promote the establishment of a competitive production infrastructure for organic electronics. The vision of the OE-A is to build a bridge between science, technology and application. More than 3,000 member companies from the engineering industry make VDMA the largest industry association in Europe. The OE-A is the host of the premier international conference and exhibition, LOPE-C – Large-area, Organic and Printed Electronics Convention, to be held June 28-30, 2011 at Messe Frankfurt, Germany.
