Breakthrough in glass-free OLCD technology

Organic electronics company FlexEnable has revealed an ultra-narrow border organic LCD (OLCD) to enable bezel-less displays for notebooks and tablets.

By exploiting the truly flexible nature of the organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) on which OLCD is based, it is now possible to fold the borders behind the display for the first time. This breakthrough provides a new approach to bezel-less screens that cannot be achieved with glass displays.

OLCD, which offers the same quality and performance as traditional glass LCDs, can bring unique benefits to notebooks, tablets, TVs and monitors by responding to the increasing demand for larger displays with smaller to no borders. The bezel size allowed by OLCD is independent of the display size or resolution, and the OLCD technology itself is cost-effectively scalable to large display sizes. Moreover, OLCD can make a notebook up to 100g lighter and 0.5mm thinner.

OLCD can be curved and shaped to enable new form factors in a wide range of products including consumer electronics, smart home devices, automotive displays and beyond. The technology is being implemented into existing manufacturing lines in Asia and is expected to be in production in 2020.
