Plastic Logic showcases e-paper R&D initiatives
Check out the world's first colour flexible plastic display with video rate driven by OTFTs
Plastic Logic opened the doors of it's Cambridge lab on 27 June, to give journalists and analysts an insight into some of its research and development projects. As well as demonstrating the world's first colour flexible plastic display with video rate driven by organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs), the company was also keen to show off some of its other innovations, including, transmissive backplanes, ultra-thin form factors and plastic displays embedded with silicon chips.
Plastic transistors in logic circuits
Plastic Logic is looking at building these transistors into logic circuits, in order to add functionality to smart labels and anti-counterfeit tags. Once these building blocks are in place, they can be connected together to build more complicated circuits. These circuits are very difficult to reverse-engineer because, unlike standard semiconductors, where you could etch them away layer by layer, this is a stack of plastics, and if you put it in most solvents they'll just all dissolve.
