Organic light-emitting diodes and silicon integration
Therefore CMOS active area space below the OLED electrode is available for additional circuitry in a System-on-Chip setup, including OLED driving (as minor part of it). OLED processing is performed by post-processing at wafer-level. return of the wafers into CMOS processes is not required. Major applications are expected for microdisplays and optoelectronics (organic microsystems).
– electronic viewfinder
– head mounted displays (mobile communication, consumer electronic, …)
– optical inspection
– patterend illumination
– light barriers (reflection type)
– optical sensors (chemical, medical –> fluorescence, photoplethysmography,…)
– communication (chip-to-chip, board-to-board, chip-to board)
Additonally the OLED fabrication technology offers firstly the possibility to integrate highly efficient light source into silicon to establish a new class of organic based microsystems. The Fraunhofer IPMS offers developments in this novel application area. At the Smart System Integration show 2007 in Paris the Fraunhofer IPMS is going to present highly efficient OLEDs integrated into silicon backplanes in the form of rows or arrays for opto electronic and microdisplay applications.
