Printed low cost radio frequency ident (RFID) labels based on polymer circuits will enable electronic intelligence in nearly everyday product. This will be realized by a new technology, where soluble polymers with appropriate electrical conducting, semiconducting and insulating properties are applied via high volume web printing processes. It is more likely that new markets will be generated, than standard electronics based on silicon will be replaced, because of the fact that future polymer applications will be found on products within supply chains or on consumer goods.

By using this technology, PolyIC combines soluble electronic polymer materials with high volume printing processes to achieve low cost, high volume printed electronics. We present results based on our expertise of processing the polymers into microelectronic circuits and devices. Structured layer compositions of the functional polymers set up thin film polymer field-effect transistors. These constitute the basic building blocks of integrated polymer circuits (IPCs). The particular functionality of an integrated circuit is achieved by an appropriate circuit design. Fast, high life time integrated polymer circuits and results of a 125 kHz demonstrator RFID tag are presented.

  • For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.

    Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
