Scotts Valley, Calif. – Nov. 14, 2016 – Semblant, the market leader in protective nanocoatings and liquid damage protection for electronic devices, today announced that Dr. Abe Ghanbari will present “Plasma Deposited Water and Corrosion-Proofing Coming to Wearable Devices’ Rescue,” on Nov. 16, at 5:35 p.m. as part of IDTechEx Wearable USA 2016. The presentation will examine market demand to make wearables more robust and resistant to the elements (water, sweat, dust, corrosion), as well as how to overcome the challenges of high-volume manufacturing and sustainability.
While consumers used to accept the blame for damaging their electronics, they are now demanding more robust devices from manufacturers. Today’s devices must be able to go anywhere at any time. This means they have to be protected against water, dust and corrosion, the leading causes of damage and device failure. Ghanbari’s presentation will discuss different approaches to protecting electronics against water, dust and corrosion, and highlight the need for environmentally friendly solutions. Additionally, he will examine the need for device to be reworkable and repairable, as this saves consumers, carriers and manufacturers millions of dollars, as well as reducing the amount of electronic waste in landfills.
IDTechEx Wearable USA is part of the IDTechEx Show!, the leading event on emerging technologies including electronic textiles, printed electronics, sensors, energy harvesting, energy storage, 3D printing and advanced materials. The show will take place Nov. 16 and 17 in the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, Calif. USA. Dr. Ghanbari will present as part of the New Materials for Wearable Devices session.
