Reinventing the world of electronics with a revolutionary organic and flexible technology that enables a new generation of sensors and logic based on solution deposited functional inks at a low temperature, on low-cost substrates to make organic integrated circuits.
Envision tomorrow’s electronics
Founded by organic electronics researchers and chip designers, FlexiIC provide innovation in the design of flexible integrated circuits and systems and its manufacture to jump-start new organic electronic development market.
FlexiIC circumvents the costly conventional materials and fabrication techniques replacing them by solvent-based ones and additive deposition techniques such as printing.
Comprehensive solutions for flexible and ultra-low-cost organic integrated circuits
The lack of electronic design services in organic electronic foundries and companies hinders new implementations in the market. FlexiIC targets the niche.
From our long experience in electronic design and organic electronics manufacturing, FlexiiC today offers a broad range of design and manufacturing services for technically complex electronic organic and flexible components.
FlexiIC presents design modeling services including Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC) and Process Design Kits (PDKs) customization. Moreover, we also manufacture flexible and organic integrated circuits and supply vertical solutions.
Our innovation lies in the design and manufacture of flexible integrated circuits and their integration into electronic systems, based on printed-organic electronics technology. This technology allows the integration of electronic circuits manufactured with electronic printing, advanced deposition and additive manufacturing technologies for the development of solutions until now made with conventional silicon technologies based on photolithographic and costly clean room processes.
We are committed to supply very low cost organic and flexible integrated circuits and systems and vertical solutions based on them.
Technology / R&D
The circuits offered by FlexiIC relies on the Organic Electronics (OE) technology. Its potential is guaranteed by current applications -such as OLEDs in displays in the global market.
Instead of the mainstream electronics, the OE are made from organic materials being able to be transparent, physically flexible, and fabricated continuously on a roll to produce low-cost electronics.
FlexiICs offers a platform to implement ultra-low-cost and flexible integrated circuits for specific applications at a fraction of the cost and fast fabrication. Moreover, our chips can be easily integrated into thin-film electronic components to create novel solutions.
