PowerFilm, Inc, founded in 1988, is the first and only company in the world to develop, manufacture, and sell monolithically integrated semiconductors on a flexible polymer substrate, using the company’s proprietary roll-to-roll manufacturing technology platform. The company has developed, manufactures, and sells its line of PowerFilm® integrated photovoltaics (solar) products for lightweight portable and durable remote applications, air and space applications, and is developing products for building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV). It also is developing thin film transistor and diode products for flat panel displays, RFID tags, digital memory for camera and audio, medical imaging, and electronic paper.
PowerFilm products are semiconductor devices deposited on a paper-thin, durable, flexible polymer substrate. PowerFilm solar panels are monolithically integrated which improves durability and reduces cost by eliminating the need for costly and failure-prone manual connection of individual solar cells. Modules are manufactured on the company’s proprietary roll-to-roll manufacturing technology platform. PowerFilm has a positive environmental profile: amorphous silicon is the semiconductor absorber layer, and it is cadmium-free. PowerFilm is manufactured and assembled in the USA.
