PolyLogo® products are Smart Objects and consist of thin, flexible and printed electronics, that may consist – besides the logic – from various electronic devices. Examples are sensors, batteries, displays and control logics. In this way, flexible products are created, that can be integrated on packaging or in labels. These products can be produced very inexpensively, so new markets and applications can be opened.
The starting point in this product series is represented by a radio activated display that can switch a display element with previously defined information through radio wave energy input. The PolyIC product name for the radio activated displays is PolyLogo®-RAD, where RAD stands for Radio Activated Display.
PolyLogo®-RAD radio activated displays – all you have to know about the technical aspects
The products of the PolyLogo® line at PolyIC are manufactured on polyester substrates in roll-to-roll production. The outcome of the production process is a roll that contains the individual components on a base substrate. The components of this roll can be laminated into cards or packagings using standard converting technologies. The impressive thinness of the PolyLogo®-RADs is of great benefit for the integration in cards or packagings (e.g. tickets, vouchers, etc.). The following deals primarily with PolyLogo®-RAD cards as they will be the main form of processing in the beginning.
From a technical point of view, the radio activated PolyLogo®-RAD cards consist of an antenna, printed and organic electronics and an electrochromic display. The required activation energy is provided by an activation unit that works with radio waves transmitted on a typical RFID frequency of 13.56 MHz. These radiated waves are processed by the printed electronics and the printed display is provided with electric energy, which causes the display element to show a pre-defined information content. Whenever the PolyLogo® card is removed from the radio field, the information shown disappears within a short period of time and can be reactivated several times.
