UK start up to collaborate with Holst Centre on flexible electronics

Cambridge based start up, PragmatIC has teamed up with Netherlands research lab Holst Centre in a bid to research, develop and exploit flexible electronics.

PragmatIC says its novel IP in semiconductor device architectures and processes will open up a range of new possibilities for Holst Centre's research programme relating to oxide semiconductors, transistors and circuits. "This formal partnership follows an extensive evaluation of Holst Centre's amorphous oxide semiconductor and related material stack, confirming its suitability for printed logic based on our approach," said Scott White, ceo, PragmatIC. Gerwin Gelinck, programme manager at Holst Centre, added: "PragmatIC's device structures and high resolution imprint process naturally complement Holst Centre's existing expertise in materials and printed logic circuits. We believe this combination will significantly advance the practical commercialisation of printed electronics technology."
