Thinfilm, (OSE:THIN.OL) a leader in the development and commercialization of printed electronics, announced today it has been named a finalist in the “M2M, Internet of Things, Sensors, RFID and NFC” category of CTIA’s annual Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Awards competition. CTIA - The Wireless Association, an international organization representing the wireless industry, recognized Thinfilm for advancements in printed electronics that bring intelligence and digital interactivity to physical objects and in turn extend the boundaries of the Internet of Things (IoT).
To bring intelligence to trillions of everyday objects, including the 99% of the world’s items that are not yet connected, the company has achieved significant technological breakthroughs that add a new dimension to mobile data collection and user interactivity. For example, Thinfilm recently demonstrated the industry’s first printed NFC-enabled Temperature Sensing Smart Label, an integrated system label that combines printed electronics technology, real-time sensing capability and near-field communication (NFC) functionality. These labels allow organizations to address a wide range of important B2B and B2C applications such as brand authentication and anti-diversion, freshness tracking, temperature-controlled logistics and cold chain monitoring.
“The CTIA’s recognition of Thinfilm’s innovation in the mobile space is important market validation as we help to build a world in which everyday items have digital intelligence that will help us to make better decisions and improve quality of life,” said Dr. Davor Sutija, chief executive officer of Thinfilm. “At Thinfilm, we are focused on developing and commercializing printed electronics products that will help make the Internet of Everything a reality.”
Representing the most innovative and cutting-edge emerging mobile services, solutions and technology, the E-Tech Awards finalists feature the best in areas such as network equipment, M2M, the Internet of Things and the cloud. Other finalists include AT&T, Novasentis, Piper and Spansion Inc.
Individuals have the opportunity to vote for Thinfilm as their “Crowd Favorite.” Online voting is open now and runs until Monday, September 8 at 5:00 p.m. EDT. Super Mobility Week attendees will also be able to vote via text during the event, from September 8 until 10:00 a.m. EDT on September 10.
“CTIA awards recognize the best and most innovative products and services for wireless companies looking to improve their operations and their engagement with their customers,” said Robert Mesirow, CTIA Vice President and Show Director. “Super Mobility Week attendees will see what will be the next hottest devices and services.”
Other finalists in the category include:
- Spansion Inc.
The winners will be announced at Super Mobility Week, which will take place September 9 – 11, 2014 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas. The E-Tech Awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday of the event from 12:30 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. PDT at Studio C.
