Thin and light innovations

Kris Myny

imec's Kris Myny (above) showed a flexible thin-film NFC tag that costs just a penny. So far, plastic electronics have not stepped far from the lab, but Myny hopes to find a home for the tags in a variety of applications, including powering a deck of interactive cards in a board game.

Below, Michael Suster (left) and Mehran Bakhshiani of case Western Reserve showed a palmtop dielectric spectroscopy system based on their new sensor, circuit and interface chips. The unit could be made for less than $50, replacing $50,000 set up that today requires an Agilent 85070E and vector network analyser.

The unit even embeds a raspberry Pi module for embedded processing. It can work with samples of just 10uL compared to conventional systems that take tens or even hundreds of millilitres.
