PragmatIC: beyond silicon...

About us

PragmatIC is a world leader in ultra low cost flexible electronics, enabling the potential for trillions of “smart objects” that can sense and communicate with their environment.

PragmatIC’s unique technology platform delivers integrated circuits thinner than a human hair that can be easily embedded in any surface, introducing interactivity into a wide range of everyday items.

At a fraction of the price of conventional silicon chips, PragmatIC’s products are being adopted by a growing base of multi-national customers across diverse sectors including consumer goods, packaging, security printing, and mainstream electronics. 

PragmatIC is headquartered in Cambridge, England and has a production facility based at the National Printable Electronics Centre in Sedgefield.

PragmatIC is privately funded, with investors including Cambridge Innovation Capital, ARM Holdings and Avery Dennison:

 

PragmatIC’s flexible electronics offers the most compelling and cost effective product I’ve seen in the 20 years I’ve been involved in this industry. The company has already demonstrated a scalable and cost-effective manufacturing process. With CIC’s support, the company can now meet the pent-up demand from customers for higher volume commercial production.”
Victor Christou
Chief Executive of CIC

 


“ARM is committed to identifying innovative and disruptive new technology platforms. We are supporting PragmatIC as they have the potential to dramatically extend the range of form factors and economics of embedded intelligence. We see particularly compelling possibilities to embed connectivity and computational power in everyday objects at extremely low cost.”
Mike Muller
Chief Technology Officer of ARM

 

“We're excited about this collaboration with PragmatIC, which presents a promising opportunity to build on our high volume RFID inlay manufacturing capabilities. With PragmatIC's technology, there is the potential to extend the use of unique item-level digital identities to improve consumer experiences in a number of new segments, such as fast-moving consumer goods.”
