Improving recovery through digitising waste sorting using Pragmatic‘s ultra-low-cost RFID Pragmatic Semiconductor, a world leader in flexible electronics, is delighted to announce that it is working on an Innovate UK, Manufacturing Made Smarter project to increase the quality of plastic recyclate. In the project, code-named SORT‑IT, packaging will be given unique digital IDs to facilitate […]
Pragmatic were proud to see Nature publish a paper about the ground-breaking PlasticARM, the largest integrated circuit designed using our FlexIC Foundry® service. This is the result of many years of cooperation between Pragmatic and Arm. We caught up with John Biggs (Distinguished Engineer and Co-founder of Arm) to learn about the journey to reach this […]
This technical paper reports on a 32-bit Arm (a reduced instruction set computing (RISC) architecture) microprocessor developed with metal-oxide thin-film transistor technology on a flexible substrate (which we call the PlasticARM) which pioneers the embedding of billions of low-cost, ultrathin microprocessors into everyday objects.
This technical paper is based on the PlasticARM project with Arm and Pragmatic Semiconductor, which has led to the development of the largest integrated circuit and pioneers the embedding of billions of low-cost, ultrathin microprocessors into everyday objects.
This technical paper presents a new standard cell topology, two-stage resistor-load logic, for Indium-Gallium-Zinc-Oxide (IGZO) thin-film transistor (TFT) technology.
Josh Young At Pragmatic Semiconductor we are dedicated to creating a more sustainable future and our team are proud to be involved in a range of circular economy projects leveraging our cutting-edge flexible electronics. In this blog post, our Circular Economy Market Development Manager, Joshua Young, explains more. Novel technology projects enable circularity and waste […]
The Pragmatic team are proud to be confirmed as a finalist for the Royal Academy of Engineering MacRobert Award, which recognises engineering achievements that demonstrate outstanding innovation, tangible societal benefit and proven commercial success.
Pragmatic Semiconductor has a game changing FlexIC Foundry service. For the first time, it is now possible for design houses, product companies and R&D organisations to quickly prototype and then manufacture in volume, custom low-cost flexible integrated circuits. We spoke with Dr Kris Myny, R&D Team Leader at imec, one of Pragmatic’s global partners using this offering, […]
Vincent Barlier Silicon integrated circuits (ICs or chips) have evolved to depend on software to define what tasks they perform, enabling them to execute a variety of tasks, which is ideal for complex applications like smartphones and computers. But when we talk about the Internet of Everything (IoE), low price, rather than programmability, is the […]
The Pragmatic team was thrilled to win The Award for Innovation at the Cambridge Independent Science and Technology Awards, in recognition of our exciting flexible electronics technology that enables innovators to create novel solutions to improve everyday life.
The EU has set itself a challenging goal of reducing landfill to a maximum of 10% of municipal waste by 2030. There is no magic wand, no single solution, that can be deployed to achieve this, it will require a number of initiatives, and of course each country will have different focus areas making it […]
Pragmatic’s ultra-low-cost RFID to enable rewarding recycling and packaging re-use PragmatIC, a world leader in flexible electronics, has been awarded a £1.3 million contract from the UK Government Sustainable Innovation Fund for a state-of-the-art recycling scheme based on PragmatIC’s ultra-low-cost NFC technology. In an initiative code-named SPRITE (Sustainable Plastics Recycling Innovation by Tagging Electronically), PET […]
Pragmatic is not just the name of our company, it is how we approach every task as individuals and as teams. Alastair Hanlon, CCO, explores how this pragmatism has led us to form a number of deep partnerships with a diverse range of institutions and customers as we build our ecosystem for ConnectIC products. What […]
Pragmatic Semiconductor is fortunate to be working with exciting business partners who are experts in their own fields. This is helping to propel forward adoption of our pioneering flexible electronics technology in important sectors, such as healthcare. For this Pragmatic blog post, we chatted with Stefan Wiedemann from Schreiner MediPharm, a leading supplier of innovative […]
