Master Classes

Sharpen your competitive edge

For the first time at CPES, we are adding a third day of optional programming that runs from 8 a.m. to noon.

Our Master Classes provide hands-on learning in hot technology areas from CPEIA members who are experts in their respective fields. Make you pick to learn about Flexible and Printable Batteries with ICI, Evolving PE Standards with CSA Group, or Inks and Pastes for Printable, Flexible and Wearable Technologies with the National Research Council of Canada. Stay tuned for others to be confirmed.

Make your pick to learn about:

CSA Group

Evolving PE Standards with CSA Group

From testing and certifying for safety and performance requirements, to developing leading-edge, consensus-based standards to support emerging technology, standards are vital to the growth of Canada’s printable, flexible and wearable electronics (PE) sector. In this session, CSA Group will discuss:

  • Who are the major standards bodies involved with PE?
  • What do these standards cover?  How are they useful for industry?
  • How do you incorporate standards into your development?  What standards would apply to you beyond PE standards e.g. health standards for wearables?
  • How can standards, qualifications and testing figure into your global market access for PE-based products?

Flexible and Printable Batteries with ICI

The rise of the Internet of Things, wearable devices and sensors for remote or embedded applications demands a new generation of batteries that are flexible, thin, rollable and even stretchable. In this session, experts from the Printability and Graphic Communications Institute will discuss:

  • What printable and flexible batteries have been commercialized
  • What are the unique capabilities of such batteries
  • Which batteries fit best with various applications
  • New batteries in R&D and close to commercialization

Inks and Pastes for Printable, Flexible and Wearable Technologies with the National Research Council of Canada

The global conductive inks and pastes market is a growing billion-dollar industry. Photovoltaics remain a key growth area. Car occupancy sensors, printed piezoresistive sensors, printed antennas and some versions of glucose sensors remain substantial niche markets. Demand will for grow for specialized 3D and in-mould applications for inks that can stretch and survive thermoforming/moulding processes.

In this session, leading researchers from the NRC will discuss:

  • Market availability: Key industry suppliers and the various ink and paste types
  • The benefits of various materials used in various applications, printing processes and substrates
  • How do you get the formulations right? What must you consider?
  • How do you test various inks and pastes for your PE designs?
