CPEIA and IEEE partner on printable electronics

Will collaborate on a number of initiatives over a three-year term.

OTTAWA — The Canadian Printable Electronics Industry Association (CPEIA) ( will introduce printable and flexible electronics to engineers as part of a strategic partnership with the Ottawa section of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc. (IEEE).

The associations have signed an MOU that will make use of IEEE’s technical research, industry and standards development base to develop solutions.

“PE [printable electronics] offers engineers, researchers and other technology developers a whole new set of building blocks for applications in automotive, aerospace, defence, mobile communications, consumer electronics, health, intelligent buildings and connected homes,” said Peter Kallai, president and CEO of the CPEIA. “IEEE members are the inventors who advance science and technology in their everyday research and development work; they are also the engineers who make everyday decisions about what technologies to use or include in a host of technology products.”

The two organizations will collaborate on a number of initiatives such as technical working groups and educational events over the next three years with options to renew.

CPEIA brings together key Canadian and international players in industry, academia and government.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc. (IEEE) is a non-profit global association. The IEEE Ottawa Section, part of IEEE Canada, represents more than 1,800 members.
