ELECTRONICS: NTERA announced the availability of its NanoChromics TKN-4.0 trial kit for segmented numeric displays.
The TKN-4.0 trial kits enable functional printers with sheet feed screen-printing assets that immediately begin manufacturing printed NCD™ displays for a variety of applications. With the new TKN-4.0 kit, printers now have the ability to produce a variety of printed numeric or alpha numeric electronic displays. Applications will include: two-factor authentication smart cards, mass transit passes, stored value cards where residual balance information can be displayed, medical devices, sensor displays requiring low power and item level RFID enabled dynamic pricing labels that can be altered quickly through Radio Frequency Identification Technology.
Print Trial Kit TKN-4.0 is fully compatible and ideally used with applications where hot lamination, thin form factors or cost-effective integrated solutions are required.
The kit contains a suite of seven screen-printable NCD inks, guidelines and documentation for printing standard six or eight digit numeric displays, sample CAD files, an electronics board with custom software to drive the printed display and a trial printing license for NTERA proprietary NCD technology. Through the flexibility and simplicity of printing the technology can be easily customized to make multiple application-specific numeric displays.
