Workshop Overview

Today articles identifying organic electronics as a “Top 10 Technology to Watch” appear regularly in widely distributed business and technology publications. Since 2001, the organic electronics community has received greater international attention that has led to the creation of several business ventures and technology-driven consortia that are developing the enabling disruptive technologies to launch organic electronics-based products. Market opportunities for many of these applications depend on cost. To achieve these cost targets, the materials and processes developed in the laboratory must be transferable to the high-volume manufacturing environment. One low cost manufacturing approach that has been proposed is based on traditional graphic arts printing platforms; in addition, the recent development of novel classes of printing inks (conductive, dielectric, and semiconductive inks) demonstrating electrical stability has resulted in the fabrication of organic-based electronic systems. These materials have demonstrated improved processing properties as well as performance when exposed to ambient conditions.

Although many disruptive technologies require novel manufacturing platforms to be developed, opportunities to leverage graphic arts printing platforms can mitigate risk while significantly reducing the time for organic and molecular electronics technology introduction. Many existing graphic arts printing platforms can be used to fabricate organic electronics-based products by integrating various hardware/software motion & vision control systems. This ATW is providing the mechanism to create an international network of organic and molecular electronics developers and systems designers by bringing together representatives from the graphic arts printing and microelectronics industries.
