Protecting the Worldâ??s Electronics
Water damage is the second biggest killer of smartphones (with scratched or broken screens at number one). Dr. Coulson will explore the range of water protection technologies that are now available and will explain the potential benefits that can be achieved with each. Demand for such technologies is increasing as consumers are taking their phones into harsher and harsher environments and becoming more and more reliant on them for everyday life. In this presentation we will review and compare the various water protection technologies spanning from protection against humidity and weather, to splashes and spills and immersion of at least 2 metres depth for 30 minutes and show how they can increase reliability and durability of electronic devices.
P2i is a spin-out from the UK Ministry of Defence (Dstl) based on the original research work carried out at Durham University in the late 90’s.
Today, P2i have successfully scaled-up for mass manufacturing across a range of key sectors, with over 500 million electronic devices processed. P2i is now the Global Leader in Liquid Repellent Nanotechnology. Dunkable® is the latest addition to P2i’s product family, which is a system level solution that delivers IPx8 level protection, giving ruggedized performance without compromising on aesthetics or product design.
