Connecting the printed electronics and wearables communities

Wearable devices will benefit from advances in printed electronics technologies

Printed electronics as a manufacturing method has become established in a number of areas across the electrotechnical world. The connections that are made are emerging as particularly significant in the new generation of wearable electronic devices. Although some wearable applications can be realized using wholly conventional rigid electronics, many will require some element of flexibility. Standardization work by a number of IEC Technical Committees (TCs) and subcommittees (SCs) is central to this development.

New edition of Standard for OLED displays

Measurement conditions and measuring methods for optical and electro-optical parameters to ensure better image quality

The quest for better television pictures has been ongoing ever since TV was invented and in particular after it started reaching a wider audience. The second edition of an International Standard for Organic LED (OLED) displays adds to a series that will contribute to better image quality on these displays.

Supporting technologies for photovoltaics

Barrier layer assemblies and printed electronics bound to play major role, especially in thin-film flexible PV panels

There are a number of technologies supporting the development and further implementation of photovoltaic (PV) devices. International Standards developed by several IEC Technical Committees (TCs) and Subcommittees (SCs) in the barrier layer assemblies and printed electronics domains underpin this implementation.

Sensor networks, wearable printed electronics and AAL

Wearable printed electronics will play a central role in Active Assisted Living

Sensors provide information about objects, or people and their environment. Networks of sensors in the shape of wearable electronics and integrated into the living environment will support Active Assisted Living (AAL) into the future. Sensors and printed electronics will be increasingly integrated into smart wearable devices to facilitate the implementation of AAL.

New ways of seeing, working and doing business

Virtual and augmented reality applications can improve surgery techniques, increase manufacturing efficiency and take the way we view sports to a new level

Initially developed for military and subsequently gaming scenarios, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) applications have found their way into many industries, which are enhancing their products and services through innovative technology.
