PATHOLOGY IN PRACTICE. With the NHS currently under huge strain, additional time-consuming and burdensome processes add to an already heavy workload. Gillian Ewers examines the advantages that radio frequency identification offers in tracking samples and consumables.
VERDICT. The UK firm’s flexible integrated circuits are thinner than a human hair, which means they can be easily embedded into everyday objects. According to PragmatIC, this technology can make it possible for “trillions” of smart objects.
ARM. The story behind our technical paper; “A hardwired machine learning processing engine fabricated with submicron metal-oxide thin-film transistors on a flexible substrate”, started with a question of how to make billions of everyday things smart.
COMPONENTS IN ELECTRONICS. There are increasing demands from the consumer to make things smaller and more convenient. Electronic devices are becoming smaller with more densely populated PCBs assemblies.
IDEASPACE. This month we are celebrating our 10th birthday. Scott White of PragmatIC, was a member of the ideaSpace Community from the very start. Here Scott outlines his journey and explains why the support from ideaSpace has been so important.
EUROPEAN PHARMACEUTICAL MANUFACTURER. Gillian Ewers, vice president of marketing at electronics company PragmatIC, discusses how RFID technology can be used throughout the healthcare sector to improve efficiencies and prevent counterfeiting.
CLEANTECH REPORT. Technology is starting to enable smarter, more detailed data capture, as well as aggregation and analysis. Between 2019-2025, the smart waste market is expected to reach $3.97 billion, at a CAGR of 16.6%. Technologies have emerged to better track plastic throughout its lifecycle.
NFC FORUM. What’s more important? Setting a goal to strive after? Or achieving the goal? You can’t have one without the other for sure, but PragmatIC CEO Scott White might respond to the above question by saying “Both”.
INDUSTRY EUROPE. The EU has set itself a challenging goal of reducing landfill to a maximum of 10% of municipal waste by 2030. There will not be a single solution to achieving this, but recycling will have to play a significant role.
CHIEF SUSTAINABILITY OFFICER. Cutting-edge embeddable technology is poised to revolutionise waste management, but what challenges and benefits can we expect from the next generation of RFID technology and flexible electronics?
ENVIROTEC. Gillian Ewers, VP Marketing with technology firm PragmatIC, offers insight into an approach that uses low-cost integrated circuits to bring the benefits of near-field communications (NFC) and RFID to the recycling arena.
ENGINEERING SPECIFIER. You can’t always plan for everything, because more often than not life is what happens when you’re making other plans, as John Lennon said. That certainly was the case for Dr Catherine Ramsdale, VP of Device Engineering at PragmatIC.
