Our wearables are going to become more flexible and versatile in the future. It is nice to know that multiple companies are working on developing flexible batteries and other components for our future gadgets. PragmatIC’s flexible plastic ARM processor, PlasticARM, is an implementation of the ARM Cortex-M0 SoC in plastic, which can be embedded anywhere.
PragmatIC’s solutions are thinner and flexible. They also cost less than silicone. As Charbax explains:
Using PragmatIC’s technology, the flexible integrated circuit (FlexIC) is implemented in thin film metal oxides on a polymer substrate, with a total thickness of less than 10um.
