Rapid adoption of flexible integrated circuits across 3 continents
PragmatIC, a world leader in ultra-low-cost flexible electronics, is proud to announce that in just 2 months it has received orders for over 20 million flexible integrated circuits (FlexICs). Orders from customers in Europe, North America and Asia endorse PragmatIC’s unique technology platform as the ideal solution for introducing connectivity into mass market applications.
“These initial volume orders highlight the attractiveness and uniqueness of our ConnectIC® product line”, said Scott White, CEO of PragmatIC. “Global companies, eager to enhance their digital presence, have quickly identified a variety of exciting use-cases for connectivity in everyday items.”
PragmatIC will continue to ramp production in the UK through 2019, while working with its partners to enable even more companies to leverage the benefits of FlexICs in their high-volume applications.
The PR1100 ConnectIC series, launched in February, is designed for use in closed HF RFID systems, and enables rapid detection of objects by low-cost custom readers integrated into the solution. They are ideal for applications such as hierarchical inventory management, item identification and tracking, supply chain assurance and brand authentication.
Other products in the ConnectIC family are already in development, addressing a range of use scenarios from open standards-based environments to customer-bespoke solutions.
ConnectICs are targeted at market segments such as food and beverage, personal and home care, pharmaceutical and healthcare. They also support the introduction of digital interactivity into physical toys and games, bringing the dynamic nature of online gameplay into the real world.
“The RFID market is already worth $11 billion in 2018, rising to $13.4 billion by 2022”, said Raghu Das, CEO of market research firm IDTechEx. “The rapid adoption of PragmatIC’s ultra-low-cost technology has the potential to increase the addressable market by an order of magnitude or more.”

Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.
It fits perfectly for us that we’re surrounded by like-minded companies at NETPark. There are a number of highly skilled people in the area who can help us grow our business. The facilities and services offered by NETPark are first class, they make office life simple and engaging.
CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.
We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.
The quality of the facilities at NETPark and the attitude of staff is first class. It has a really dynamic, innovative atmosphere.
The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.
