Based on SmartKem’s existing organic semiconductor inks, the new development kit will combine technology, IP and data sheets containing materials safety documents, processing instructions and tutorials. Each kit will be bespoke and tailored in line with the nature and experience of each client’s business and their unique goals and applications. The kit will be provided alongside an integration and education programme, allowing SmartKem’s customers to benefit from its IP, scientific expertise and knowledge of how to best integrate these materials into existing production processes.
Steve Kelly, CEO at SmartKem comments, “As a leading semiconductor specialist in the flexible electronics industry, the new kit will allow us to share our in-depth knowledge with our customers and partners to allow them to create prototype flexible TFTs through proven methods. We not only offer high quality organic semiconductor inks to manufacturers, but also ensure that they are being used correctly and that they are integrated seamlessly into processes with continued guidance and expertise from the team. The kits can be customised for each unique customer, regardless of their experience in the field.”
From molecule design to market application, SmartKem strives to provide its customers with technology solutions that achieve quick results without the need to set up new processes and materials. High performance, low cost flexible transistors are a critical success factor in the commercialisation of products such as flexible smartphones and tablets. The company’s aim is to work closely with customers in these markets to enable the practical adoption of this ground-breaking new technology in the near future.
SmartKem’s p-FLEX portfolio of flexible, p-type organic semiconductors present a myriad of benefits over alternative materials offering higher electronic mobility, ease of integration into existing production methods and low-temperature solution processing.
