Pragmatic Semiconductor is the only semiconductor manufacturer in the world that produces ultra-low cost flexible chips. Pragmatic is headquartered in Cambridge, UK, with a billion-unit production facility in Sedgefield, and Pragmatic Park near Durham in development.
Pragmatic’s flexible integrated circuits (FlexICs) are thinner than a human hair and can be invisibly embedded in objects, enabling innovators to create novel solutions to everyday problems that are not practical with conventional electronics. They provide designers with the opportunity to create their own application-specific flexible devices using Pragmatic’s FlexIC Foundry® service at a fraction of the cost and time required for traditional silicon circuits, opening up multiple new markets.
Pragmatic’s novel, differentiated technology is being adopted by a growing base of global companies across diverse markets, including consumer goods, retail, healthcare, pharmaceutical, gaming and security.
Flexible chips offer a unique and far less expensive alternative to advanced silicon semiconductors, an area of the industry in which the UK has no realistic prospect of competing with other geographies.
Pragmatic provides the UK with an opportunity to become a genuine world leader in flexible semiconductors within a wider sector that underpins global electronics.
