PHOENIX Printed Electronics USA 2006 released its roster of speakers and topics for the conference and technical sessions on December 5 6 in Phoenix. Organizers expressed interest in examining technical, financial, and other aspects of printed circuits.
Darrel Hopper, Ph.D., of the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, will speak to the importance of military application performance, and will outline sensor, display, and form-factor developments at the laboratory.
In printed circuit manufacture, Motorola and PolyIC will represent high-volume/low-cost products for the near future. Other sessions will focus on corporate partnerships, such as paper-producer Weyerhaeuser's acquisition of OrganicID, in the interest of printing RFIDs.
Several other sessions will offer information on printed transistors, displays, sensors and lighting, sound and power, materials, and manufacturing. One session will discuss venture-capital interests and investments. An investor forum allows venture capitalists and investors to discuss financing for printing electronics with interested parties.
Prior to and following the main conference agenda, IDTechEx will host master classes in-depth and interactive session that include a tour of the Arizona State University Flexible Display Center, a joint venture created through university, industry, and government resources.
