Technology

 

Our simple sensor electrode fabrication technology required innovation at every level and tight integration of unique expertise spanning materials, nano-particle synthesis, nano-particle dispersion, ink formulation, ink-jet printing, thermal processing, and manufacturing equipment.

 

Our innovative approach eliminates over 60% of typical sensor electrode fabrication steps and allows us to simply ink-jet print the electrode pattern and apply our thermal process to optimize performance.

 

AddiLat technology enables manufacturing of printed-sensors-on-glass at costs far below sensors-on PET film. Manufacturers of touch products that leverage our technology can eliminate integration of sensors-on-film. This reduces manufacturing steps and layers in the touch module/display stack. As a result, manufacturers will be able to offer touchscreen products that are thinner, lower cost, and have better optical performance.

 

Beyond the obvious fact that fewer process steps in sensor and product manufacturing reduces cost, the technology also enables rapid prototyping and reconfiguration to service different products and production volumes. This opens new product opportunities and reduces development and lead time, which also reduces cost.
