Abinfo is a non-profit organization founded in 1988 with headquarters in Brazil that promotes new and unique ways of working together in a wide range of R&D projects, aiming the application of science and technology to face real world challenges
Features of Abinfo’s way of working are:
ABINFO has proven capability of structuring of cooperation networks involving research, development and industrial agents. ABINFO played an important role in the establishment of networks and bilateral and multilateral cooperation programs, such as:
ABINFO performs development of studies for strategies and roadmaps for public and private entities. Examples are evaluation of opportunites for the implementation of LCD's for BNDES discussed during the various LatinDisplay Conferences.
ABINFO has experience in cooperative participation in research, development and innovation projects, giving support for companies to plan and perform projects of new products and pilot manufacturing plant. Examples are pilot plant for liquid crystal displays, transparent electrode electrofluorescent lamps manufacturing technology for LCD displays and lighting, heater element and control for a cooktop, thin film heater for a shower.
Support in proposition of projects for public funding agencies or private
ABINFO developed new processing techniques, such as plasma system for removal of layers in electronic devices, thin film deposition systems, chemical reactors and thermal processing for thin films, sputtering apparatus, cryostat and measurement systems for device and materials characterization.
Examples are the design and construction of peripherals for human communication with computer systems. Among the developed peripherals are screen sensitive to touch and blow, tablet and special keyboards for various applications, computational system for the study of human movements and equivalence and conditional discrimination.
Design and demonstration of electronic voting and counting using touchscreens. This demonstration was key dor the adoption of electronic voting by the Brazilain government.
Demonstration of digital student desk prototypes and associate web based school management and content repository
Cooperation with technical schools and universities for training of human resources at all levels. ABINFO had and has a remarkable performance in this area, contributing to training and training of more than a hundred business professionals and institutions R & D and students of technical schools, undergraduate, specialization and graduate, in this case supporting master's and doctoral theses, as well as post-doctoral programs.
