Partnership signals industrialisation of AMOLED displays

FlexEnable has partnered with Chunghwa Picture Tube (CPT) to develop and mass-produce AMOLED displays, a market forecast to rise to $16billion by 2020. Market research company IDTechEx has predicted that this rapid growth will be spearheaded by the release of the first phone with a flexible display in 2017.

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 (60Hz) and is 125µm thick.

Indro Mukerjee, chairman of 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."

Sheng-Chang Lin, president of CPT added: "CPT has shown a number of AMOLED displays at several major exhibitions as well as to potential customers. These demonstrations clearly prove 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."
