Abstract:
The 10th edition of Printed Electronics USA (www.PrintedElectronicsUSA.com) is only a few weeks away, and this year represents a unique opportunity to learn about printed, organic and flexible sensors.

Printed Sensors, a new focus at Printed Electronics USA

Cambridge, MA | Posted on October 21st, 2013

This IDTechEx conference is focused on business and, with 2,000 attendees expected and more than 150 exhibiting companies, it will offer plenty of opportunities to interact with the main players in the industry.

Biosensors: The Multi-Billion Dollar Market

Blood glucose self-monitoring has helped millions of people to control their diabetes. It works by inserting a glucose test strip - a disposable biosensor - into a portable electronic reader. These sensors can be manufactured in high volumes and low-cost by printing the layers that are needed for the sensing electrodes (conductive inks and enzymes). As part of the conference opening keynotes, LifeScan (a Johnson & Johnson company and a major supplier of glucose test strip in America) will give a talk on "Printed Electronics in the Multi-Billion Dollar Diagnostics and Healthcare Market".
GSI Technologies will also be present at the event. The Illinois-based company is a print house specialising in electronics and biomedical devices, and produces more than 1 billion blood glucose sensors per year.

Other types of printed biosensors are being developed. The University of the West of England and its European partners have recently achieved a milestone by integrating a printed cholesterol sensor with a printed battery and a printed display. This work will be presented at Printed Electronics USA and attendees will be able to see an early prototype of the device.

Masterclass

On November 22, there will be for the first time a masterclass dedicated to printed sensors and actuators. Participants will learn about the technology, target markets and value proposition of these new devices. They will interact directly with a panel of speakers who are experts in their field, speakers include:

Dr James Biggs, Senior Research Scientist at ViviTouch
Dr Joseph Stetter, President and CTO of KWJ Engineering, Inc
Prof Tony Killard (University of the West of England), coordinator of the European project SIMS (Smart Integrated Miniaturised Sensor System)

Sensor Integration and Technology

In the conference tracks and on the tradeshow floor, you will hear about the latest developments in the industry.

'Smart labels' is a hot topic and companies like PARC and Thinfilm will present their roadmap on how to make smart labels a reality. Thinfilm has recently demonstrated a prototype of an integrated printed sensor tag. The temperature sensing element on the tag uses nanosilicon technology from PST Sensors, who is also exhibiting at the event.

Printed photodetectors is another disruptive technology. ISORG, based in France, has started building a dedicated production line to make printed photodetectors commercially available. For the second year in a row, they will be at Printed Electronics USA to meet end-users and show what their technology can enable.

Attendees will also find out about the latest research on wearable electrochemical sensors, artificial electronic skin, or how NASA will harness carbon nanotubes to make the next-generation of printed sensors.

This year Printed Electronics USA will gather many companies involved in sensors across the whole value-chain. Meet established sensor manufacturers like Interlink Electronics, or start-up companies such as Tactonic. Address your design, prototyping or integration needs by establishing partnerships with industry experts and veterans. Specialized materials and chemicals suppliers will of course be there, including EMD Chemicals, Brewer Science, or Solvay Specialty Polymers.

Printed Electronics USA will take place at the Santa Clara Convention Center. For more information on the conference, tradeshow and masterclasses, visit www.PrintedElectronicsUSA.com .
