Flexible image sensors and sensor arrays enable precision imaging, detection and gesture control in ways simply not possible with rigid glass arrays. FlexEnable's (www.flexenable.com) unique transistor array technology has already been demonstrated in several image detection applications.
In a display, the backplane controls the output of a pixel; in a large area sensor application, the backplane measures the input to a pixel.
This enables the company to create distributed sensor arrays for applications such as imaging and biometric security applications on mobile and mobile payment devices. Integrated with its backplanes, these sensors can be ultra-thin, ultra-lightweight and flexible.
The company has shown a flexible image sensor platform and reference design made by combining our flexible transistor backplane technology with the unique photodiode technology from technology partner ISORG to develop a breakthrough flexible image sensor.
This platform offers completely new ways to interact with mobile devices though gesture recognition and brings unbreakability and wraparound capability to medical imaging applications. It has already been recognised globally, receiving the FLEXI award in 2014 (Flextech Alliance).
