PolyIC’s cutting edge technology shown at the „world summit“ of organic electronics

Fuerth, Germany: LOPE-C 2009 (www.lope-c.com) is the largest and most eminent event in the field of organic electronics. PolyIC as Gold Sponsor of this interdisciplinary world summit, which will take place from June 23 – 25 in Frankfurt, Germany, will exhibit several innovative applications live and exclusive.

Within the premises of Messe Frankfurt, numerous visitors from all over the world are being expected by the OE-A (Organic Electronics Association), which belongs on its part to the umbrella association VDMA. The expert public will have the chance to inform themselves about the latest research and development in the field of organic electronics through more than 50 exhibiting companies as well as more than 100 presentations.

One of the highlights at LOPE-C 2009 will be the technical presentations that are on the agenda on June 24 – 25. At this opportunity PolyIC will – for the first time ever – announce data on its printing process and on the roll-to-roll production. Already on June 23, the technological leader will comment on its present strategic direction during its presentation at the Business Conference.

Cutting edge technology made in Germany is not an obsolete buzzword: for the first time PolyIC will exhibit a roll from its production, which contains printed RFID transponder. However, development is not only taking place in the laboratories: Hands-on and updated applications give an example of the various areas of application for printed transponders. Visitors of former conferences, who already know the PolyIC coffee machine that could be activated contactless through a RFID voucher, will be surprised by its continuing revolution...
