Spotlight: Building an ecosystem to fulfill a novel technology’s promise
“Seizing the spaces” between technology opportunity, business opportunity, and market reality involves working together to come up with robust applications that are going to be more differentiating than inventing in isolation. The example of printed electronics (and its evolution at PARC) provides insights into moving a novel technology from concept to market. How does one move from establishing expertise and demonstrating feasibility, towards commercial impact? Share your comments.
Expert voices: Hosting a speaker series on novel electronics
The current PARC Forum speaker series on novel electronics includes: CEO of Thin Film Electronics Davor Sutija on printed memory systems; UC Berkeley EECS professor Vivek Subramanian on the confluence of printing and semiconductors; CTO of Polyera Corporation Antonio Facchetti on unconventional materials and processes for printed opto-electronics; PARC’s Ana Arias, who recently took part in the NAE’s U.S. Frontiers of Engineering symposium as 1 of the nation’s 86 brightest young engineers and was just elected to the board of directors of the Materials Research Society. Sign up for announcements or watch the talks online.
In the marketplace: Thinfilm & PARC working together to develop next-generation printed memory solutions
Combining Thinfilm’s memory products with PARC’s printed thin-film transistor technology and custom development services will allow the development of high-capacity, compact form-factor printed memory and enable integrated systems. Read the news release and/or watch the related PARC Forum talk.
