How Are Flexible Electronics Manufactured?

Dec 20, 2019 11:15:00 AM / by Doug Skilskyj posted in Flexible Electronics, Applications


There’s a lot of buzz around flexible electronics today, and rightfully so.

The convergence of these technologies, including wearable devices and foldable displays, enable innovative form factors and features that provide consumers with highly personalized experiences.

The market is segmented by application (displaying, lighting and sensing) and end-user (automotive, aerospace, health and wellness, electronics, medical, military and robotics). But, how exactly are these electronics manufactured to flex and fold without breaking across their various use cases? Below, we explore how the technology has evolved over the years.

How to Create Flexible Displays

Sep 24, 2019 1:59:56 PM / by Doug Skilskyj posted in Flexible Electronics, Applications


The origins of flexible displays can be traced back to the ’70s. Though there have been many breakthroughs since then, it was only recently that this technology began to see consumer adoption for mass production.

Currently, 90% of displays sold today are made with glass. These designs are based on liquid crystal displays (LCD). Flexible displays are often based on organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology, which is fundamentally different than LCD.

So, how does this technology flex and fold? Below, we explore how to create flexible displays using OLED over LCD.

What’s Next? A Look into the Future of Flexible Displays

Oct 2, 2018 9:15:00 AM / by Doug Skilskyj posted in Flexible Electronics


In recent years, several top-tier manufacturers have touted flexible displays for smartphones and watches. Yet, origins of the flexible display can be traced back to the ’70s when Nicholas K. Sheridon produced the first-ever flexible e-paper display. 

Since this major breakthrough, there’s been a growing interest among engineers, designers and manufacturers to apply this technology to everyday life. This stems from an intensifying demand by consumers for devices that are smaller, lighter and thinner.

It’s only a matter of time before the next generation of flexible displays emerges. Below, we take a look at what’s to come in a future that’s flexible.
