LG, Universal's new AMOLED

LG Display and Universal Display on Tuesday unveiled an updated prototype of a flexible AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode) display at the 2008 SID Conference. The companies' jointly developed prototypes feature brighter colors with better saturation and gamut, as well as a one-sided electrical connection that allows for more flexibility in the four-inch display.


The 320x240 resolution prototype features LG Display's amorphous-Silicon backplane technology coupled to Universal Display's OLED frontplane tech. With the improvements in color reproduction made since the prototype shown at last year's SID show, the companies claim their product is currently the most advanced flexible OLED display.

The U.S. Department of Defense supported part of the prototype's development, as military applications of the technology, including wrist-mounted PDAs and roll-out displays in small communications devices, are expected. Non-military applications customers are more like to see used in everyday life include digital newspapers, Head-Up Displays, automotive instrument panels and office partitions, windows or walls that double as displays.

Analysts predict flexible OLED displays could reach the market in the next few years.
