Plastic Logic’s flexible AMOLED technology wins Innovation Excellence Award
Plastic Logic Ltd, experts in the development and industrialisation of flexible organic electronics with headquarters in Cambridge, UK, has won the OLED Innovation Excellence award for its truly flexible AMOLED display technology. The prize was handed out at the Global OLED Congress, a gathering of the world’s leading display manufacturers and display industry analysts.
Plastic Logic won the award in recognition of their pioneering work and development of truly flexible plastic AMOLED displays. The displays are based on Plastic Logic’s own low (<100°C) temperature process organic thin-film transistor (OTFT) array. The display has a bend radius of 0.75mm – flexible enough to be wrapped around a pencil lead whilst still operating.
The plastic OTFT AMOLED differs from other array technologies in that it enables displays to be shaped, contoured and moulded. New markets are expected to be enabled or created with this new technology, including wearable devices with flexible displays on the body or clothing. “Plastic transistors bring unrivalled levels of flexibility to displays and other electronics, and they are the key to unlocking the full potential of markets including wearable electronics and the internet of things,” commented Indro Mukerjee, CEO of Plastic Logic.
