World first – fully organic flexible OLED prototype from Plastic Logic at SID '14
The new display features 256 grey levels, and full 30fps image rendering. The display offers further proof that organic transistor technology will offer display makers the best path to truly flexible, ultra-thin, lightweight AMOLEDs.
The market for flex AMOLED displays is set to reach $12Bn by 2020 (IHS 2013 report)
Through our OTFT development and industrialisation process we have created unique IP and a highly transferable process-flow. We have a Partner Programme to work with leading global display makers and consumer electronics companies to enable flexible, plastic AMOLED supply chains through licensing and technology transfer to mass volume producers. We are now actively seeking companies to join our Partner Programme to take flexible electronics and wearable technology into mainstream production.
One application for the technology is wearables – a market pulling for electronics, displays and sensors that can conform to the curved and irregular shapes of the human body. OTFT is the only transistor technology offering the true flexibility needed for wearables: For example in smart bracelets, the size of usable screen area can be significantly increased once you can bend a display around your wrist.
Plastic Logic will be speaking at two SID Display Week events: Wednesday 4th June (Mike Banach, Engineering Director) and Thursday 5th June (Paul Cain, Marketing Director), about Flexible AMOLED display technology using organic transistors, and its uniquely enabling capabilities.
