      Flexible Technology and Foldable Smartphone


      Foldable Smartphones and Technology behind it

      Flexible phones, Foldable phones or Bendable Phones say whatever you want, but these smartphones and their release dates are one of the most trending topics nowadays.And all Big companies and their researcher are working and patenting their research and invention regularly related to Flexible Technology.You will find many Information on google just Search "foldable phone or flexible phone or flexible mobile phone".If you want to know the upcoming Flexible Phones then there are  Samsung Flexible Phone Galaxy X , lenovo new phone CPlus flexible smartphone / smartwatch and the Folio foldable tablet / smartphone, LG Foldable Smartphone and there is also a NOKIA's Unknown Foldable Smartphone. As i already said that you will find many article related to foldable phone on internet, So we at Andro Root have prepared a nice and long post to share information and little bit knowledge in the same field.Today in this post we will talk about Flexible Smartphone and technology behind it.

      foldable smartphones, samsung flexible, samsung folding smartphone, 

      Flexible Technology and Flexible Electronics:-

      Flexible technology is not a very old technique but it has recently expanded to a plethora of products. Basically, Flexible technology is a combination of different type of technology with an added quality which is Flexibility.So as electronics with flexibility is known as Flexible Electronics. Flexible electronics is a technology for assembling electronic circuits by mounting electronic devices on flexible plastic substrates, such as polyimide, PEEK or transparent conductive polyester film. Additionally, flex circuits can be screen printed silver circuits on polyester. Flexible electronic assemblies may be manufactured using identical components used for rigid printed circuit boards, allowing the board to conform to the desired shape, or to flex during its use. An alternative approach to flexible electronics suggests various etching techniques to thin down the traditional silicon substrate to few tens of micrometers to gain reasonable flexibility, referred to as flexible silicon (~ 5 mm bending radius).This technology is having many benefits like their light weight, favorable dielectric properties, robust, high circuit density and conformable nature. Devices and circuits can be rolled away when not required. These types of devices offer properties like clarity, dimensional stability, low coefficient of thermal expansion, elasticity etc.
      The flexible smartphone is a combination of flexible electronics components.So Flexible Smartphone is an example of Flexible Electronics Technology.


      Parts of Flexible Electronics:-

      In this part of post we will talk about the parts of Flexible Electronics, And starting with the flex circuit.There are a few basic constructions of flexible circuits but there is significant variation between the different types in terms of their construction. Following is a review of the most common types of flexible circuit constructions.

      Types of Flex Circuits


      1. Single-sided flex circuits
      2. Double access or back bared flex circuits
      3. Sculptured flex circuits
      4. Double-sided flex circuits
      5. Multilayer flex circuits
      6. Rigid-flex circuits
      7. Polymer thick film flex circuits

      Types of Manufacturing Technology


      1. Amorphous Silicon Technology
      2. Polysilicon Technology
      3. Organic Thin Film Transistors
      4. Single Crystal Silicon on Flexible Substrates
      5. Mixed Oxide Thin Film Transistors
      6. Hybrid (CMOS) Technology

      Flexible circuit materials

      Each element of the flex circuit construction must be able to consistently meet the demands placed upon it for the life of the product. In addition, the material must work reliably in concert with the other elements of the flexible circuit construction to assure ease of manufacture and reliability. Following are brief descriptions of the basic elements of flex circuit construction.


      • Base material: The base material is the flexible polymer film which provides the foundation for the laminate.
      • Bonding adhesive: Many polyimide flex circuits presently employ adhesive systems of different polymer families. However, some newer thermoplastic polyimide adhesives are making important in-roads. As with the base films, adhesives come in different thickness. Thickness selection is typically a function of the application.
      • Metal foil: A metal foil is most commonly used as the conductive element of a flexible laminate. The metal foil is the material from which the circuit paths are normally etched. A wide variety of metal foils of varying thickness are available from which to choose and create a flex circuit, however, copper foils, serve the vast majority of all flexible circuit applications. Copper’s excellent balance of cost and physical and electrical performance attributes make it an excellent choice.

      Flexible Electronic Components

      Fast flexible electronics operating at radio frequencies (>1 GHz) are more attractive than traditional flexible electronics because of their versatile capabilities, dramatic power savings when operating at reduced speed and a broader spectrum of applications. Transferrable single-crystalline Si nanoemembranes (SiNMs) are preferred to other materials for flexible electronics owing to their unique advantages. Further improvement of Si-based device speed implies significant technical and economic advantages. While the mobility of bulk Si can be enhanced using strain techniques, implementing these techniques into transferable single-crystalline SiNMs has been challenging and not demonstrated.


      • Circuit board
        • Flexible printed circuits (FPC) are made with a photolithographic technology. An alternative way of making flexible foil circuits or flexible flat cables (FFCs) is laminating very thin (0.07 mm) copper strips in between two layers of PET. These PET layers, typically 0.05 mm thick, are coated with an adhesive which is thermosetting and will be activated during the lamination process.
      • Display
        • Research and development into flexible e-paper-based displays largely began in the late 2000s with the main intentions of implementing this technology in mobile devices. However, this technology has recently made an appearance, to a moderate extent, in consumer television displays as well.Read More:-Wikipedia - Flexible Display
      • Resistors and Capacitors
        • The structures of thin film resistors and capacitors which are constructed on the flexible substrate and the conductive paths are made up of flexible materials such as silicon nanomembranes, grapheme, carbon nanotubes etc. Nanotechnology is to a large extent for the manufacturing of electronic components
      • Memory, Amplifiers and Ring Oscillators
        • The researchers built three kinds of circuits to test the nanocrystal’s performance for circuit applications: an inverter, an amplifier, and a ring oscillator. All of these circuits were reported to operate with a couple of volts, according to the researchers an important point since If you want electronics for portable devices that are going to work with batteries, they have to operate at low voltage or they won’t be useful.

      samsung bendable phone, samsung foldable smartphone, samsung folding mobile, flexible display, 

      • Batteries
        • The researchers presented a flexible thin-film lithium ion battery that enables the realization of diverse flexible batteries regardless of electrode chemistry. The result is a flexible Li-ion battery that can be made with almost any electrode material. Here, the researchers used lithium cobalt oxide as the cathode material, which is currently the most widely used cathode in non-flexible Li-ion batteries due to its high performance. For the anode, they used traditional lithium.

      Now comes on the Main topic Which is 

      Flexible/ Foldable/ Bendable Smartphone: -

      So Basically Using All the above Flexible component and Technology Developer and researchers from the various group and company are trying to make various Flexible Devices/ Foldable Devices/Bendable Devices and Flexible or foldable Smartphone is one of them.Flexible or Foldable Smartphone will be based on Flexible electronics and either complete phone or just some pard will be foldable/bendable or flexible.

      According to Wikipedia - 

      "In May 2011, Human Media Lab at Queen's University in Canada introduced PaperPhone, the first flexible smartphone, in partnership with the Arizona State University Flexible Display Center.PaperPhone used 5 bend sensors to implement navigation of the user interface through bend gestures of corners and sides of the display. In January 2013, the Human Media Lab introduced the first flexible tablet PC, PaperTab.Nokia introduced the Kinetic concept phone at Nokia World 2011 in London.At CES 2013, Samsung showcased the two handsets which incorporate AMOLED flexible display technology during its keynote presentation, the Youm and an unnamed Windows Phone 8 prototype device.Read More:-Wikipedia - Flexible Display."


      Upcoming Foldable Smartphone:-
                                                                  Lenovo showed two prototype model at the Lenovo tech World 2016.These two are:- CPlus flexible smartphone / smartwatch and the Folio foldable tablet / smartphone.They are actual product and not the concept video and images like Samsung Galaxy X Foldable Phone's leaks.So we can say that may be Lenovo is ahead from other compynies like Samsung,Nokia and LG in the field of Foldable Smartphone.When we talk about the release dates, According to Tech Advisor:- " A Samsung Display Engineer has rained on Tech Advisor's parade with the suggestion that the technology won't mature until 2019."
                                                                                            This is not what we want to hear but may be it is true, that this technology is not developed till now to that level that a complete smartphone can build through it., So As we only can assume or guess that A Complete Foldable Smartphone can not be launched before 2019-2020.So before that just take a look at the Advantages and disadvantages of Flexible/ foldable/ bendable Smartphone.
