Emerging Electronics


"Emerging electronics" means electronics beyond the classical silicon approach, including: flexible, printed electronics from organic, polymeric or inorganic materials.

Organic and printed electronics stand for a revolutionary new type of electronics:

  • Thin
  • Lightweight
  • Flexible
  • Robust
  • Produced at low cost

This enables single-use, ubiquitous electronic devices and new applications. Many other terms exist for organic electronics – printed, inorganic, plastic, polymer, flexible, thin film, or large area electronics – but in the end, they all mean the same thing.

In the OE-A you will meet experts in emerging electronics covering the whole range of technologies and applications who are all willing to share their knowledge with you.

For detailed information on applications and technologies see the OE-A Roadmap.
