Lee Chang Hoon from Samsung Display says It is possible to produce AMOLED Displays for small and mid range displays cheaper than LCD. OLED need no backlight instead of LCD and yes we are ready to compete directly with LCD. In 2014 the best customer for Samsung display was Samsung Electronics but the company hopes to get half its OLEDS sales from other companies in less than three years. A new market for the korean company are the flexible displays, the goal is to offer and deliver a flexible OLED Display that can be folded in half by end 2015. 30-40K of flexible AMOLED Displays are the goal to mass produce by half by end 2015.The next big thing are also the transparent displays.
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.
SEL Semiconductor Energy Laboratory R&D developed an AMOLED with a very high resolution of 1,058ppi. SEL showcase this new hig ppi Panel at the DIsplay Innovation 2014 event Yokohama City Japan.
