Obsolete Samsung TOLED Panel Makes Waves in Display Market

ROCHESTER, England, Aug. 4, 2016 — As a result of Samsung’s transparent OLED (TOLED) display panel reaching the “end-of-life” (EOL) obsolete designation, display designer Crystal Display Systems Ltd. has announced that they can no longer offer the product.

”The EOL of TOLED is a really unfortunate situation for all concerned,” said Tony Large, director of Crystal Display Systems. “Such is the nature of large-scale manufacture that without large volume take up on products, fabrication becomes impossible. Coupled with issues of production yield and fragility, the outcome is not entirely unexpected. We are working closely with clients to develop alternative technologies based on proven TLCD [transparent LCD] technology.’

The TOLED display panel is used in all TOLED products available on the market. To those who have already committed to this product, Crystal Display Systems suggests that they should try to cancel or return the order, if possible, due to the lack of product or support. If that is not an option, the company suggests obtaining a three-year warranty for parts and labor.

Crystal Display Systems designs and distributes flat panel display solutions.
