Known for its core design IP that ends up in everything from IoT to smartphones to servers, Arm is now presenting that it has enabled one of its key microcontrollers in a new form factor: rather than using silicon as a base, the company has enabled a processor core in plastic. The technology has been in the works for almost a decade, but Arm has...

If I understood the recent news articles right, the PlasticARM was of limited success due to low yield. The more recent work of PragmatIC <https://spectrum.ieee.org/plastic-microprocessor> seems to fix that by lowering processor complexity -- but in the end, the complexity bound will need to be pushed.

IC Information, Speicfication, Pin Configration & Marketing Researchers from The Grainger College of Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), in collaboration with PragmatIC Semiconductor, a flexible electronics manufacturer, have claimed the first commercially viable flexible plastic microprocessors. For less than a...
