EE TIMES. Scott White is the CEO of PragmatIC Semiconductor, where he has led the development of a platform to connect everyday objects to the IoT and is now championing the application of this technology across key societal challenges.
SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING NEWS. Big brands have been making lots of commitments to reduce plastic waste, but in reality, there has been a noticeable rise in waste. How can innovative technology be leveraged to win the war on plastic waste and boost sustainability?
PACKAGING EUROPE. In an increasingly complex global supply chain, how can technologies such as RFID and blockchain support security, safety and sustainability from producer to end consumer?
EE TIMES. PragmatIC Semiconductor has secured $80 million in funding to build a second FlexLogIC fab with five times the capacity of its existing fab in order to meet a growing demand.
THE TELEGRAPH. Investors including Cambridge's Arm have backed the effort to build specialised chips in Britain intended to power the next phase of the internet.
MARKT & TECHNIK. British PragmatIC Semiconductor, based in Cambridge and Sedgefield in County Durham, has not only developed a completely new process, but also a unique fab-in-a-box system for the cost-effective, high-volume production of flexible integrated circuits (FlexICs).
RFID JOURNAL. Several UK retailers are launching pilots of a sustainability and waste management solution using PragmatIC’s flexible IC technology to track recyclables and reusable product packaging in order to increase the rate at which consumers return packaging.
NEW ELECTRONICS. Innovating in semiconductors is seen as being a critical component of the UK’s Tech Strategy, as Scott White explains. PragmatIC’s unique technology can expand and enable the UK to play an increasingly central role in the globally important semiconductor supply chain.
ELECTRONICS WEEKLY. RFID and novel flexible electronics could bring inventory improvements for FMCGs (fast moving consumer goods) and low-cost, high-volume items, plus offer sustainability benefits, says Dr Brian Cobb from PragmatIC Semiconductor.
EE TIMES. PragmatIC Semiconductor is taking us back to the future. First the company embedded an Arm Cortex-M0 on a flexible substrate. Now the company has gone back further back in time, producing a flexible version of the iconic 6502 processor.
SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN PODCAST. Researchers from PragmatIC Semiconductor and Arm have developed a microprocessor built on high-performance plastic rather than silicon—and they say it could enable smarter food labels and supply chain management.
GSA FORUM. Check out this interview with Scott White, CEO at PragmatIC Semiconductor, which outlines some of the challenges and opportunities he sees for the semiconductor industry.
