Flexible Display Center Installs OLED Tool
TEMPE, Ariz., July 5, 2011 — The Flexible Display Center (FDC) at Arizona State University has installed Korea-based Sunic Systems' GEN-II OLED SUNICEL Plus 400 vacuum evaporation and encapsulation process tool. The new system gives the FDC the ability to manufacture full-color OLED displays in-house. Having passed all acceptance criteria, the tool already is being used to scale the FDC's recently announced full-color, full-motion video active-matrix (AM) OLED prototype displays to larger sizes.
"Our collaboration with Sunic Systems has proceeded very smoothly and was key to manufacturing full-color, high-resolution GEN II OLED display prototypes here at the FDC," said Nicholas Colaneri, director of the FDC. "It also showcases the infrastructure we have put together to enable the advancement of flexible display technology and support the growing demand for full-color flexible electronics across a broad spectrum of applications, including defense, military and consumer."
The system will allow FDC partner companies to continue to advance the development of flexible OLED displays, solid-state lighting and plastic electronics by providing them access to larger-scale manufacturing. Producing devices on plastic will enable them to be more rugged, thin and lightweight than their glass or rigid counterparts, while at the same time offering higher performance, vibrant color and video capabilities.
