Near Field Communication Smart Label

  

PM1407 ThinFilm InnovateCard

Full Name: Thinfilm Near Field Communication Smart Label

Team:
 Thin Film Electronics ASA

Status: Ready to apply

Debut: May, 2014

Field Position: Security and environmental access control, product chain of custody, environmental control; pervasive sensing schemes

Skill Set: The system integrates printed electronic labels with real-time temperature sensing and Near Field Communications (NFC) to allow for seamless wireless data capture and exchange of information. The NFC-enabled temperature-sensing label represents the first in a potentially wide range of sensing products from Thinfilm. This highly versatile, multi-sensor platform offers many potential commercial applications such as sensing temperature, time, humidity, light, and blood, oxygen and glucose levels.

Performance Stats:
• Designed to accommodate a variety of sensing elements, both printed and conventional
• Printed-dopant polysilicon (PDPS) logic supports high-frequency radio and detects when a critical temperature threshold has been exceeded.
• Can be configured to sense temperature, time, humidity, light and blood, oxygen and glucose levels.

Regulatory Profile: Supports environmental control and other QA/QC and risk and quality management regimes.

Coach’s Notes: “The system integrates printed electronic labels with real-time temperature sensing and NFC to allow for seamless wireless data capture and exchange of information. The NFC-enabled temperature-sensing label represents the first in a potentially wide range of sensing products from Thinfilm. Potential usages include the monitoring of time via an identification badge lending control and security over access to controlled environments, or sensing humidity to ensure that pharmaceutical products are not compromised."

Scout’s Notes: “The Thinfilm Smart Label platform is designed to accommodate a variety of sensing elements, both printed and conventional. Depending on the application and necessary components, labels may either be fully printed or feature a combination of printed and surface-mounted elements. Furthermore, using PDSP allows Thinfilm engineers to significantly compress the cycle time for new designs, enabling faster time-to-market for new sensing elements as they are developed."

Team Resources: Thinfilm, the first to commercialize printed, rewritable memory, is creating printed systems that include memory, sensing, display, and wireless communication. Thinfilm’s roadmap integrates technology from a strong and growing ecosystem of partners. Thin Film Electronics ASA (“Thinfilm”) is a publicly listed Norwegian company with headquarters in Oslo, Norway, product development and production in Linköping, Sweden, product development, production, and business development in San Jose, California and a sales office in Tokyo, Japan. In addition, manufacturing is provided through a production partner, InkTec, in Pyongtaek, South Korea.
