Roadmap for Organic and Printed Electronics

June 4, 2009
Frankfurt, Germany—Initial products based on organic electronics—thin, light-weight, flexible, and inexpensive to produce—are already on the market. The Organic Electronics Association—OE-A, a 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.

‘Organic electronics you can touch’ is made possible by the new OE-A brochure. Every copy includes a set of functional organic electronic components as a give-away, such as various printed displays, RFID-tags, switches, batteries and transistor structures. Furthermore, six additional demonstrators in which a number of components are combined on flexible plastic and paper substrates will be introduced at LOPE-C. The following OE-A members collaborated on these projects: Acreo, Agfa, CEA, COPACO, DuPont Teijin Films, Felix Schoeller, Fraunhofer IAP, FUJIFILM Dimatix, GSI Technologies, H.C. Starck Clevios, HDM-Stuttgart, ITRI, Leonhard Kurz Stiftung, Mitsubishi Polyester Film, M-Solv, NTERA, Plextronics, PolyIC, Schreiner Group and VARTA Microbattery.

The updated and expanded third 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 technical projects are central themes of the OE-A, and a constantly expanding group of companies from Europe, North America and Asia collaborate intensively on these topics. Since LOPE-C.is the internationally leading conference and exhibition, it is the perfect venue for unveiling these results,” says Wolfgang Mildner, Managing Director, PolyIC and Chairman of the Board of the OE-A.

The latest results of the OE-A will be presented in a keynote address, at the exhibition as well as during a press conference at LOPE-C. For more information, visit www.oe-a.org.
