Thinfilm Electronics and PARC developed a technology for printing semiconductors onto a plastic film – [via]

Last month, a small Norwegian company called Thinfilm Electronics and PARC, the storied Silicon Valley research lab, jointly showed off a technological first—a plastic film that combined both printed transistors and printed digital memory.

Such flexible electronics could be an important component of future products, such as food packaging that senses and record temperatures, shock-sensing helmets, as well as smart toys. But the story of how PARC’s technology—the printed transistors—wound up paired with memory technology from an obscure Norwegian company also provides a window onto a 10-year struggle by Xerox to transform the way it commercializes R&D ideas.

Jim Smith build this 3D printer that is able to print parts in ABS plastic with a maximum build area of 403.00 x 403.00 x 322.70 mm. The unit is equipped with a x-y plate, a fume extraction system and a PID temperature controller for the heated build platform. View construction details on the link below.
