Pragmatic awarded grant to develop production equipment
FlexLogic™ fab-in-a-box scales capacity to billions of flexible integrated circuits
PragmatIC, a world leader in flexible electronics, has been awarded €1.6 million funding under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 SME Instrument programme, for development of its FlexLogIC equipment announced in April.
FlexLogIC transfers PragmatIC’s proven end-to-end flexIC production process into a self-contained, fully automated, modular “fab-in-a-box” for high throughput manufacturing. FlexLogIC offers capacity for billions of flexICs at a capital cost between 100 and 1000 times lower than a silicon fab.
The FlexLogIC design study was supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 SME Instrument Phase 1 (grant agreement number 696266). PragmatIC has now been awarded further funding under the SME Instrument Phase 2 (grant agreement number 726029).
PragmatIC’s Chief Executive Officer, Scott White, says: “This significant grant award provides further validation of the unique and compelling nature of the FlexLogIC equipment, and its potential to drive the commercial roll-out of mass-market flexible electronics.”
