TPK nano silver wire touch products lead the future of the industry

- Oct 08, 2018-

As the entire electronics industry began to build the "5G+8K" ecological environment, a technology upgrade around the new touch display industry was slowly unveiled. With the support of various high-speed chips, many problems in the touch display industry have begun to be controlled by the original system, and the direction of material technology breakthrough has been further advanced.

 

Among all new material technologies, nanomaterials are the newest materials with the deepest research and the fastest application in recent years. The nanowire is defined as a one-dimensional structural material having a lateral limitation of less than 100 nm (with no limitation in the longitudinal direction). On this scale, nanowires have quantum mechanical effects and are therefore also referred to as "quantum wires." ".

 

Depending on the composition of the materials, nanowires can be divided into different types, including metal nanowires (such as Ni, Pt, Au, etc.), semiconductor nanowires (such as: InP, Si, GaN, etc.) and insulator nanowires (such as: SiO2, TiO2, etc.).

 

As an important part of nanotechnology, nanowires can be used to make ultra-small circuits. Among them, in addition to the excellent electrical conductivity of silver, the silver nanowires have excellent light transmittance and flexural resistance due to the size effect of the nanometer scale. In addition, due to the large aspect ratio effect of silver nanowires, it also has outstanding advantages in the application of conductive adhesives and thermal conductive adhesives.

 

In the "5G+8K" ecological environment, the current main directions of the touch display industry include 3D surface display, flexible display and oversized display. With the breakthrough in materials and process technology in the panel industry, these three display devices have already appeared in the field of public life.

 

Among them, 3D surface display has been widely used in smart phones, watches, wristbands, car displays and high-end home appliances. Flexible display is developing on large-format TVs, foldable mobile phones, tablets, computers, etc. It is expanding in the field of large-scale TVs, public displays, and electronic whiteboards that are 65 to 110 inches. Behind the success of these products, almost all benefit from the breakthrough of new touch technology, so that the human-computer interaction function of these display products can meet the various text, image, video and audio interaction requirements under high-speed network.

 

Among the breakthroughs in the new touch technology, nano silver wire has also made a major breakthrough as the basic material of the industry. The new material research and development enterprise represented by Cambrios in the United States has overcome the production, manufacturing and storage of nano silver wire. After applying the industry's difficult problems, combined with the powerful touch technology strength of the industry's touch giant TPK-KY, the two companies have joined forces to launch various advanced nano-silver touches for the industry in recent years. product.

 

Cambrios has nearly 90% of the patented nano silver materials in the industry, and has accumulated rich experience in various technical features and mass production technologies of nano silver wires. Coupled with the technical parameter models accumulated in various industries for more than ten years, Cambrios can produce nano silver wires and related commercial products of suitable specifications according to the needs of customers.

 

After years of research and development and efforts, Cambrios has developed an arbitrarily stretched 3D curved touch product for the industry through its excellent material technology and TPK-KY's strong touch production capabilities. It can be applied to a variety of 3D curved touch displays; flexible and foldable touch products, in addition to the same stretching characteristics of 3D curved touch products, the product can withstand more than one million times of bi-directional arbitrary folding, and has become an industry. An important partner for collapsible electronic product developers; ultra-large-size hard and flexible touch products, mainly used in large-size TVs, public displays, electronic whiteboards, large curved surfaces and flexible TVs of 23 to 110 inches.

 

TPK Yuhong said that after solving the problem of the photoelectric effect industry of nano-silver lines, with the advancement of mass production technology of touch display products, TPK has helped the display industry to break through the traditional planar size limitation and space size limitation. In the future, no matter whether the industry application puts forward any demand in the field of flexible touch and large touch products, TPK Haohong and Cambrios have already prepared for the industry, which can form huge capacity for the industry with high cost performance and low cost. Allow touch products to exceed large size limits and support 3D surfaces and folding.
