For this years’ Organic Printed Electronics Association (OE-A) demo competition, VTT, University of Lapland and Ynvisible submitted a demonstrator in the category “Publicly Funded Project Demonstrators” that was a direct result of the DecoChrom project. While usually the Demo Competition is presented at the annually LOPEC conference, due to the COVID-19 pandemic only an online demonstration was possible.
The SENSYS demonstrator represents cutting edge printed electronics. It is comprised of an EC display is printed onto a singular PET foil along with the printed sensors and hybrid electronics integration. The display and electronics are integrated with four printed sensors:
- capacitive touch
- NFC antenna
The demo is designed in the shape of a fish with a five channel display to show the sensitivity of the pressure and temperature sensors; with the NFC antenna used to sense an NFC signal. Two single channel displays show which sensors are active. The active sensor is selected using the printed capacitive touch sensor.
