Flexible Organic LCDs For Consumer Electronics: Unlocking New Form Factors And Use Cases
Estrel Convention Center, Berlin, Germany
12:20 - 12:40
The rapidly increasing digitalisation of our lives and connectedness of devices changes the way we interact with the objects and surfaces that surround us. Potentially every surface can become an active display that shows information, plays videos or simply contributes to the ambience of the space. Smart devices, home appliances and automotive interiors in particular will benefit from embedded displays that offer more customised and personalised experience to the user. To turn this vision into reality, displays that can be conformed, wrapped or shaped around surfaces and objects are needed. They also need to be scalable to large areas and high volume production at low cost.
In 2018 FlexEnable is bringing plastic organic LCDs (OLCDs) to the market with its display manufacturing partner Truly Semiconductors. The presentation will provide an update on production schedule and will discuss the likely initial applications of OLCD.
Dr Rouzet Agaiby has over ten years' experience in a variety of technologies including semiconductor manufacturing, solar cells and flexible electronics with special focus on flexible sensors and displays. Rouzet is responsible for growing the implementation of FlexEnable's flexible electronics technology in flexible sensors as well as in flexible LCD for consumer electronics and industrial applications. She also sets up and manages key strategic developments in sensors and display applications with major market players to bring products to market that have added value both for OEMs and for the end user. Rouzet has a PhD in semiconductor technology from University of Newcastle and an MBA from Manchester Alliance Business School.
FlexEnable has developed the world's first flexible electronics technology platform that allows electronics made of organic materials to be manufactured on flexible plastic film, the thickness of a sheet of paper. Compatible with existing display manufacturing lines, it is the key to truly flexible and cost effective electronics over large and small surfaces. The core applications of this technology are glass-free, flexible displays and sensors that enable game-changing products across a variety of industries including consumer electronics, automotive, digital signage, wearables, medical and security. www.flexenable.com
