    OTFT Driven Displays - Enabling Innovative Applications OTFT Driven Displays - Enabling Innovative Applications Presentation Transcript

    • OTFT Driven Displays -Enabling Innovative ApplicationsKonrad Herre, COO - 15 November 2012electronica FORUM
    • Overview• Organic electronics – a new electronic wave• Technology leadership and commercialisation• Flexible displays as new revolutionary component• New applications and product concepts OTFT Displays - Innovative Applications 15 November 2012 2
    • Key Milestons in Organic Electronics (OE)• First organic TFT demonstrated (1986): Low mobility < 10-4 cm2/Vs• First demonstration of clean field-effect mobilities within an order of magnitude to that of a-Si: pentacene (1995), poly-3- hexylthiophene (1997)Current status PARC• Mobilities of 0.1 – 1 cm2/Vs achievable now in a range of solution processed OSCs (p-type & n-type)• Reliability comparable to a-Si (p-type)Demonstrators / Applications• 1998: First demonstration  integration of OTFT backplane with PolyIC e-paper (Lucent / E-Ink)• 2007: Demonstration of 13.56 MHz (non-standard) RFID tag (Philips, PolyIC)• 2007: QQVGA of flexible OLED display driven by OTFT backplane (Sony)• 2007: Announcements by Polymer Vision and Plastic Logic to Sony commercialise OTFT technology in e-paper displays OTFT Displays - Innovative Applications 15 November 2012 3
    • Why OE? Why Flexible Displays?Comparison to conventional Si-based electronics• Basic operation of OTFTs and MOSFET  similarities and differences• Materials, device structures and performance  very different• Plastic circuits not expected to replace silicon but… • one should instead look for new and emerging applications • where inorganic transistors cannot be used due to their mechanical properties or cost.Advantages• Organic transistors  relatively low temperature manufacture compared to Si (>800°C) or a-Si:H (>200°C),• Flexible plastic substrates (and even paper) on large scale• Enabling novel products  thin, ultra-light, robust, low-power, foldable, bendable OTFT Displays - Innovative Applications 15 November 2012 4
    • In the Vanguard of Plastic Electronics Technology Development10+ transistors 100+ transistors 1.2 M transistors Colour EPD 2.8 M transistors Research, Process Development and Manufacturing Cambridge University Cambridge Technology Centre Dresden Display Factory - research in organic electronics - translating research into - first plastic electronics products factory in the world OTFT Displays - Innovative Applications 15 November 2012 5
    • Plastic Electronics Technology• Uses plastic instead of traditional silicon semiconductors and glass• Enables a revolutionary design and form-factor Shatterproof, Thin, Large and Light Display OTFT Displays - Innovative Applications 15 November 2012 6
    • Display Technology Leadership• World’s first and largest production of a plastic-based flexible display• Superior weight, durability, flexibility and thickness• Daylight readable – viewing angle close to 180° OTFT Displays - Innovative Applications 15 November 2012 7
    • Manufacturing CapabilityPlastic Logic factory  flexible plastic displays (1ʺ to 20ʺ) OTFT Displays - Innovative Applications 15 November 2012 8
