The manufacturing plant in Dresden, Germany, which develops, manufactures and sells a range of flexible, electrophoretic displays (EPD), will operate independently under the name Plastic Logic Germany.
To generate focus while addressing the full range of opportunities available in these markets, the technology development and manufacturing parts of Plastic Logic will be separated and will go forward as independent companies. The company has now reached the point where it’s possible and proven to be able to manufacture arrays with millions of perfect flexible transistors over areas of any size and shape and in high volumes. The Plastic Logic flexible transistor platform has now been industrially proven to be able to form active backplanes for LCD, OLED, EPD and other display media and has been successfully broadened to be able to enable solutions for sensors and integrated systems on fully-flexible, plastic.
Being able to perfectly create flexible electronics on plastic enables transformational advantages for product shape, weight, and durability and enables a path to low-cost solutions for high volumes. This is all suited to match the requirements of the exploding markets for wearables, new mobile devices and distributed, flexible sensors for IoT applications.
“I believe that the full potential of plastic electronics is now emerging as transformational developments in flexible transistor performance and bold, new concepts drive more and more applications,” said Indro Mukerjee, Plastic Logic's chairman.
