Flexible electronics specialist FlexEnable says it has made a technology breakthrough which makes the manufacture of glass free LCDs practical and cost effective. Supporting the development, the company will demonstrate a full colour conformal in plane switching organic LCD at the forthcoming SID event in San Jose. It adds the display is light, thin and robust.

The approach is said by the company to enable the manufacture of a TFT array directly on to ultra low cost plastics such as triacetyl cellulose; commonly used as a base for polarisers and compensation layers in LCDs. resulting in the lowest cost process for flexible displays and better 'front of screen' performance than offered by amorphous silicon.

Indro Mukerjee, FlexEnable's chairman, said: "By bundling our know how and experience in the industrialisation of flexible electronics, FlexEnable has created FabEnable, delivering significant returns to display makers through the upgrade of conventional FPD lines."
