Touch sensors from PolyIC in automotive series production

Preh volume control in the new Audi A3 operates with touch technology from PolyIC

Touch sensors from Kurz subsidiary PolyIC have been integrated into capacitive volume controls from the automotive supplier Preh. The control is located on the center console of the new Audi A3, model AU380. It can be conveniently operated by the front passenger and controlled either via a mechanical push function or capacitive touch function.


TE Connectivity’s AMPMODU 2 mm wire-to-board crimp receptacles and shrouded headers free up space on printed circuit boards

TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, is freeing up valuable space on printed circuit boards (PCBs) for design engineers with its new compact AMPMODU wire-to-board receptacles with crimp contacts and shrouded headers. With centerline distances of 2 mm, they occupy 38 percent less space on a PCB than connectors with a 2.54 mm [0.100”] centerline.

Henkel drives smart living, mobility and hygiene with functional material solutions for printed electronics

The digital transformation poses a variety of challenges to all industries. One of them is surely the pressure to leverage the potential of new technologies to enhance performance. At the same time, emerging technologies make new approaches possible: printed electronics evolve the traditional electronics in terms of efficiency and flexibility to open up completely new application fields, from personal hygiene products to smart surfaces for home or mobility applications. Being on top of this development, functional ink plays a key role in printed electronics, transforming a substrate into a conductive surface.

Electroninks Announces Strategic Alliance with Enjet Inc. to Provide 10um High Resolution Direct Metallization for the Printed Electronics Market

Electroninks, the world’s most advanced supplier of particle-free silver, gold, and platinum conductive inks and pastes, today announces that it is entering into a strategic alliance with Enjet Inc., the world leader in ultra-high resolution printing to support advanced manufacturing of display, touchpanel, and packaging products. The key to this engagement is the shared value of commitment to customer success. Combining capabilities and resources will demonstrate both company’s continued investment in delivering world class conductive ink and printing equipment products.

LOPEC 2020 will not take place

Due to the increasing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Europe and on the basis of the recommendations of the Bavarian State Government as well as of the responsible health authorities, Messe München feels compelled to cancel LOPEC 2020. This measure is taken in consultation with the industry association OE-A, co-organizer of LOPEC, and in responsibility for the health of exhibitors and visitors. The next LOPEC will be held on March 23 to 25, 2021.

Have an eye for colour: printable light sensors

Cameras, light barriers and motion detectors have one thing in common: they work with light sensors, which are already indispensable in many applications. In the future, these sensors could also play an important role in telecommunications by enabling data transmission using light. Scientists from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) at the InnovationLab in Heidelberg have succeeded in taking a decisive step forward in this development: printable light sensors that can see colors. They have now published their results in the journal Advanced Materials (DOI: 10.1002/adma.201908258).

PolyIC presents sensor technology for complex industrial applications

PolyIC will be presenting new touch sensor applications at this year's Embedded World fair from February 25 - 27 in Nuremberg and at LOPEC from March 24 - 26 in Munich. On display will be advanced sensor solutions for the complex demands of the automotive, consumer electronics and household appliance industries.

Stretchable circuits: New process simplifies production of functional prototypes

Stretchable circuits have the advantage that they also work in textiles such as clothing. However, their production is considered to be very costly. A new, simplified process has now been presented by two computer scientists from Saarland University. It is based on a so-called laser cutter and its precise, fast cuts. These are provided by easy-to-use software developed by Daniel Gröger and Professor Jürgen Steimle for designers. Since the necessary materials are available on the market, almost any person can now produce stretchable electronics for their own purposes.

Film Heaters for Sensors from Schreiner ProTech

Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) pave the way to self-driving vehicles. In 2022, they will become mandatory in the EU in order to improve road safety. To achieve this objective, the camera, Radar and LiDar (light detection and ranging) systems have to accurately function in all weather conditions. Especially at freezing temperatures, sensors must be deiced quickly and kept ice-free while the vehicle is on the road. Specifically for ADAS applications, Schreiner ProTech offers innovative film heaters based on printed electronics. Installed in the enclosures of the environment-monitoring systems, they ensure reliable and permanent deicing of the sensors.
