June 12, 2014 - Offering 256 grey levels and fully supporting 30 fps image rendering, all-organic and all-plastic flexible AMOLED display demonstrator features flexible OTFT backplane technology combined with Novaled OLED frontplane materials. This organic transistor technology is suited for such applications as wearables.

Plastic Logic Unveils Next Step in Its Organic Flexible AMOLED Demonstrator Programme

CAMBRIDGE, England -- Plastic Logic, experts in the development and industrialisation of flexible organic electronics, has shown the second in its series of all-plastic flexible AMOLED display demonstrators.

Building on the first demonstrator, shown at the Flextech Conference in Phoenix, AZ in February, the new display features an increased brightness, 256 grey levels, and full 30fps image rendering. The display offers further proof that organic transistor technology offers display makers the best path to truly flexible, ultra-thin, lightweight AMOLEDs, and is the world's first all-organic AMOLED display made using a toolkit of processing capabilities already proven industrially.

One application for the technology is wearables - a market calling out for 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.

The flex AMOLED display was made using Plastic Logic's truly flexible oTFT backplane technology, combined with Novaled's OLED frontplane materials. The market for flex AMOLED displays is set to grow to $23bn by 2023 (IHS 2014 report), fuelled by the pull for flexible displays for wearables and the Internet of Things.

Through its OTFT development and industrialisation process, Plastic Logic has created unique IP and a highly transferable process-flow, and has 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 existing manufacturers. Plastic Logic is now actively seeking companies to join its Partner Programme to take flexible electronics and wearable technology into mainstream production. Indro Mukerjee, CEO of Plastic Logic, commenting on the second demonstrator said: 'The speed with which the second demonstrator display followed the first is a testament to the depth of the IP and know-how in manufacturing processes, materials sets and architectures that Plastic Logic has built up over the past 13 years. Colour is our next target.'

Update: Those attending SID at San Diego, June 1st - 6th, are welcome to see our flex OLED demonstrator at the iZone, Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th, as well as hear Mike Banach, Engineering Director - speaking on Flexible AMOLED display driven by organic TFTs on a plastic substrate on Wednesday 4th June and Paul Cain, Marketing Director, on Flexible Displays - portable & wearable devices on Thursday 5th June.
