Two types of wearable electronics: devices & apparel/textiles

The wearable electronics business has ballooned into a $20 billion industry in 2015, and experts believe it will hit $70 billion by 2025. The major players in the market are wearable devices, such as activity trackers and apparel. The health care sector has found great success in wearable tech, as it blends medical information, fitness, and wellness together for the everyday consumer. Of the two types of wearable electronics, however, apparel presents a wealth of excitement.

The history of wearable electronics

Wearable devices are all the rage right now, from FitBit products and the Apple Watch to the ever-evolving and highly anticipated Google Glass. But the idea and creation of wearable electronics occurred long before the cell phone or even the desktop computer. Brewer Science creates materials used in the sensors and MEMS devices that enable wireless device communication for wearable electronics. Wearable devices make it possible to integrate intelligent connectivity, and interest has been growing for more than 50 years.

Applications within the Internet of Things Part 2

The Internet of Things (IoT) includes a number of different applications throughout a wide assortment of industries. In our first breakdown of applications within the IoT, we discussed how Brewer Science creates materials for sensors and MEMS devices essential to the development of IoT applications. Now we’ll take a look at our involvement with control devices for electric vehicles, as well as how our technology has lengthened battery life and allowed multiple devices to communicate directly with each other for improved safety, efficiency, and logistics in a handful of industries.

Applications within the Internet of Things, Part 1

The Internet of Things (IoT) has made substantial strides since first being envisioned in 1999, having moved beyond machine-to-machine communications, toward impacting a variety of industries with “smart” devices. Nearly 26 billion devices will be connected to the IoT by 2020, according to technology research firm Gartner, Inc., and the majority of these devices fit into one of five categories:

What is the Internet of Things?

The “Internet of Things” (IoT) was first defined in 1999. Basically, the IoT is defined as a network of physical objects that are embedded with electronics that enable the objects to provide greater value and service. Although the basic meaning of the term remains the same, devices—key components of the “things” referred to in the term—have evolved. These “things” often include software or sensors that exchange data with the manufacturer, the operator, and/or other connected devices.

Brewer Science continues push toward zero-landfill status

zero_landfil-1 Here at Brewer Science, we are striving to reach zero-landfill status. Our efforts in environmental responsibility include our mini-bin recycling program and our installation of efficient water and electrical fixtures. Our latest environmentally responsible venture involves a large metal container in our parking lot – a trash compactor we’ve affectionately named Big Blue.

Benefits of being an eco-friendly business

Eco-friendly practices give your company more than just accreditation and a seal to share on letterhead and your company’s front door. Adhering to eco-friendly practices helps your company save money, reduce waste, and build a good reputation and helps your local community become more environmentally friendly. We’ve seen these benefits firsthand at Brewer Science.

How can glass survive rigorous back end processes?

Brewer Science is headed to the CS ManTech conference May 18 through 21!  CS ManTech is a respected organization focused on providing a forum for members of the compound semiconductor community to exchange and discuss new ideas. At this year's conference, we’re excited to share our findings regarding the ability of glass to be used as a non-traditional substrate in temporary bonding.
