Kateeva introduce YIELDjet FLEX printed Flexible OLEDs become real – First Yieldjet system which is mass production ready delivered to an unnamed…
At the Printed Electronics USA conference in Santa clara, Kateeva makes some major announcements. The company delivered their first Yieldjet system which is mass production ready to an unnamed Asian company. We think its Samsung Display or LG-Display. Another breaking news is that Kateeva is proud to introduce their first YieldJet Flex manufacturing equipment solution. With this solution you can print flexible OLED Displays which are cheap and unbreakable. You know that Organic light emitting diode is the only technology that can enable the ultra-light, paper-thin displays that make bendable electronic gadgets possible. And with key proprietary innovations, the YIELDjet FLEX is the only customer-proven technology of its kind that can enable cost-effective manufacturing of flexible OLED displays in high volume. Kateeva President and Co-founder Dr. Conor Madigan called the YIELDjet FLEX the first real gateway tool for flexible products.
Kateeva announces a new ink-jet based OLED encapsulation system, we discuss it with the company’s president
Kateeva unveiled a new mass production flexible OLED thin film encapsulation (TFE) system based on their ink-jet technology. The YIELDjet FLEX can enable cost-effective encapsulation deposition, and Kateeva says that the first mass-production system will ship to a customer in Asia later this month. This customer is probably Samsung Display (which recently invested in Kateeva ), but this is not confirmed. Kateeva says that inkjet printing enables superb particle performance, high efficiency and excellent scalability. The YIELDjet system is enclosed in a pure-nitrogen chamber, which is the best OLED processing environment, shielding the OLED materials from mositure and air. The ink-jet system provides exceptional planarization of substrate surface structures and particles and results in unprecedented film uniformity.

Everdisplays currently produces 600,000 5" AMOLED panels each month, will increase production to a million panels by the end of 2014
Last week we reported that EverDisplay Optronics (EDO) started mass producing 5″ 720p (293 PPI) AMOLED panels for mobile phones – and they already have their first customer, a Chinese handset maker (the first phone to use EDO’s OLEDs will launch by the end of 2014 ). EDO today updated us that the company is currently producing 600,000 5″ panels a month at their 4.5-Gen LTPS fab. The fab is not running in full capacity yet (which is 15,000 monthly substrates) and EDO expects to increase production to a million 5″ panels by the end of 2014.

Earlier this month, we reported that Taiwan’s WiseChip is entering the OLED lighting market with plans to produce candle-light emitting OLEDs using technology developed at Taiwan’s National Tsing-Hua University. Wisechip already started to produce sample panels, and the first ones were setup in an aboriginal village as street lights – embedded inside a bee-hive like mask taken from rotten wood. This tribe, Tai-Yah (also called Atayal), has been without electricty until 1979 (they were known as the “dark tribe”), and currently the use CFL street lights, but rejected a suggestion by the government to install LED lights.

Colnatec announced a new thin-film controller which they say is an exceptional and affordable alternative to existing models. The Eon-ID (a rackmount unit with an integrated display and intuitive UI) offers a versatile design that incorporates hardware, display and software. Colnatec says that the Eon-ID is ideal for OLED applications where the crystal can experience excess rate noise which leads to inaccurate thickness measurement and premature crystal failure. Combined with a temperature controlled QCM and a specially treated crystal, Eon-ID can reduce crystal noise to insignificant levels.

The Adjust-S series are OLED chandeliers that use LG Chem’s square OLED panels. They come in three sizes (3, 6 or 12 OLED panels). The lamps provide 450 – 1800 lumens. These are LG Chem’s latest 14×14 cm OLED panels(12.9 x 12.9 active area) that feature a lifetime of 40,000 hours, 60 lm/W and a high CRI (90). The Adjust-S are now available in Germany for €869 to €9990 (including the 19% German tax).

Interview with LG Displays OLED Business Vice President – Byung-chul Ahn about OLED-Television and Plastic OLED
In this new article you can read a interview with the Vice President of LG-Displays OLED Business unit. Byung-chul Ahn talks about LG-Displays innovations and says that the korean company are planning to surprise the world with more new amazing technolgy. LG Display is the only manufacturer of large OLED-Television devices emerging as ultimate display technology worldwide. Why does LG Display focus on OLED business? LG Display has been focusing on large OLEDS which are promising the next generation display technology in over a decade. We decided to develop and invest in this technology because we see the future value of OLED Displays. Organic light emitting diodes are an entirely different and new form of display technology the advantages are they are very thin solid state displays that emit colored light directly, while LCDs use a Liquid Crystal that regulates light transmission from a separate backlight, Plasmas use an ionized gas with phosphors, and CRTs use an electron beam in a vacuum with phosphors. Also, as we can see a person’s dignity by looking at the items that he or she uses, LG Display aims to develop OLED TV as a fine masterpiece that indicates the owner’s dignity and class. What do you think is the key to the success of OLED DIsplays technology and becoming the world’s No.1 in the world?
Samsung’s latest smart watch, the Gear S , is now shipping in the US. AT&T offers it for $200 with a two-year contact and you can also get it unlocked for $355 . The Gear S has a flexible (curved) 2″ 360×480 (300 PPI) plastic-based Super AMOLED display and it includes a 3G chip so it doesn’t have to be paired with a smartphone. Other features include Tizen OS, seven sensors (accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, heart rate, ambient light, UV and barometer) and a 300 mAh battery that should last for two days.

DisplayCentral posted an interesting article on LG Display’s OLED TV program. The author reports from a discussion he had with Changho Oh, Senior VP for LG Display’s OLED TV Development Division, in which Changho says that LGD is investing heavily in soluble OLED production and aims to have such panels available in 2018. A few days ago we reported that an LG Display researcher revealed that the company is developing a roll-to-roll process to produce flexible OLED displays . This is one of several possible printing technologies that can make soluble OLED panels possible. Read more about LG aims to start producing solution-based OLED panels in 2018
