Thinfilm receives first order for Scalable Array Printed Memory

Thinfilm will deliver engineering quantities of Passive Array Memory to a customer during Q2 2012.
Thin Film Electronics ASA has received its first engineering order for Thinfilm Passive Array Memory, a non-volatile rewriteable fully-printed memory suitable for a number of applications, including use in secure documents and value cards. With passive array memories, the number of contact points needed to read and write the memory is reduced, allowing more compact designs and improved contacting accuracy.

"This unlocks markets and opens up opportunities for new applications, as the number of bits in passive array memories is no longer limited by pad count and we can scale to 100 bits and higher in the same area we use currently for 20 bits," says Dr. Davor Sutija, Thinfilm CEO.

World's first printed passive array memory

The passive array architecture separates the memory from the read/write electronics and dispenses with the need for active circuitry within the memory array and memory cell.

"This is the world's first printed memory array for high-volume manufacturing and consumer applications," Sutija continues. "Passive array memory is the enabling component in printed integrated systems and smart tags for the Internet of Things, as it allows for additional functionality and more compact tag design."
