FlexEnable Partners CPT on Flexible AMOLED Displays


Reading time ( words)

FlexEnable, the leader in the development and industrialisation of flexible organic electronics, has partnered with Chunghwa Picture Tube (CPT), a renowned display maker, to drive the penetration of truly flexible AMOLED displays, a market predicted to explode to $16 billion by 2020, according to IDTechEx.

Building on a series of flexible AMOLED demonstrators made previously by FlexEnable, the two companies have now manufactured a glass-free, full-colour, flexible AMOLED display based on FlexEnable's low-temperature process for plastic transistors and CPT's RGB OLED technology. The display operates at full video-rate (60 Hz) and is only 125 microns thick.

Indro Mukerjee, Chairman FlexEnable said: "This display represents a fundamental breakthrough proving that FlexEnable's OTFT technology can be combined with mainstream OLED manufacturing infrastructures to create the most flexible and cost-effective AMOLED display technology. Working together with display makers, FlexEnable supports the integration of our proven technology platform, enabling a full range of flexible display types, from conformable LCD and OLED to electrophoretic displays at lower cost."

The partnership also signals a transformational development in the supply chain for truly flexible, plastic AMOLED displays, demonstrating that the FlexEnable process is compatible with current FPD factory equipment and techniques, requiring minimal modification. Through FabEnable, a partnering package for manufacturers, FlexEnable provides services to assist ramp-up to volume manufacturing based on the team's profound knowledge and experience of industrialisation techniques and processes.

Sheng-Chang Lin, President Chunghwa Picture Tubes said: "Truly flexible AMOLED panels are widely recognized as the most promising display infrastructure. CPT has over a decade of professional experience in the development of AMOLED displays from structural design, material allocation and process to equipment. CPT has shown a number of AMOLED displays at several major exhibitions as well as to potential customers. This demonstration clearly proves that the integration of both parties' capabilities has the potential to drive the mass production of flexible AMOLED displays making truly flexible OLED a reality."

For Climbing Robots, the Sky's the Limit

07/15/2019 | NASA
Robots can drive on the plains and craters of Mars, but what if we could explore cliffs, polar caps and other hard-to-reach places on the Red Planet and beyond? Designed by engineers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, a four-limbed robot named LEMUR (Limbed Excursion Mechanical Utility Robot) can scale rock walls, gripping with hundreds of tiny fishhooks in each of its 16 fingers and using artificial intelligence (AI) to find its way around obstacles.
