Thin Film Electronics USA, a provider of printed electronics technology, has joined with Temptime Corp. to offer new products to the pharmaceutical market.

Temptime is a provider of time and temperature indicators to the healthcare industry. Together the companies will develop temperature indicators that feature electronic technology, alerting through a digital display if a medical product has been exposed to potentially damaging temperatures. In addition to drawing on Thinfilm’s own technology, the new smart labels will include components provided by several of the company’s partners, including SPT for thermistors, and Acreo for electrochromic displays. In another company announcement, Thinfilm has entered into a commercial distribution agreement with PakSense Inc., a developer of intelligent sensing products for perishable foods.
