Applied Materials, Inc. today announced its new Applied AKT-20K PX PECVD system for manufacturing high performance active matrix OLED* and TFT-LCD displays used in the most advanced smart phone and tablet PC applications.
Using critical LTPS* technology, the system deposits highly-uniform films on 1.95m2 glass sheets that are three times larger than the previous standard size. This capability enables manufacturers to significantly increase production and drive down cost - helping to accelerate the transition to larger, high resolution screen sizes for mobile consumer products.The rich colors and low power consumption of OLED display technology have resulted in strong demand for 4-5 inch displays in smartphones. The next generation of tablet computers is expected to employ larger, 7-12 inch OLED displays, which will require greatly expanded production capacity to meet the demand. In addition to larger OLED displays, Applied's AKT-20K PX system enables ultra-high definition TFT-LCD screens with more closely-packed pixels, resulting in brighter, sharper, lower energy displays compared to previously available technology.
"We are leveraging over a decade of leadership in large-area PECVD deposition technology to help our customers meet the surging consumer demand for OLED displays," said Tom Edman, group vice president and general manager of Applied's Display Business Group. "We've scaled up our production proven LTPS deposition technology and deployed it on our latest multi-chamber platform to deliver state-of-the-art performance and productivity to customers. We're experiencing high demand for the AKT-20K PX system, with multiple units shipped to major display manufacturers."

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.
Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...
A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
