The development might make flexible, wearable electronics a reality in the near future.
Flexible devices are catching up as the new fad
Scientists at the University of Singapore have managed to successfully embed a powerful magnetic memory chip on a flexible plastic material.
The malleable memory cum processing chip is a breakthrough in the making of flexible electronics devices in future especially in products like wearables.
"Flexible electronics will become the norm in the near future, and all new electronic components should be compatible with flexible electronics.
We are the first team to fabricate magnetic memory on a flexible surface, and this significant milestone gives us the impetus to further enhance the performance of flexible memory devices and contribute towards the flexible electronics revolution," says Yang Hyunsoo, lead researcher for the project and Associate Professor at the National University of Singapore.
