OrelTech develops a low-cost low-temperature printed electronic process

Oct 20, 2017

OrelTech Konstantin Livanov photoOrelTech is an Israeli-based early stage company that commercializes a unique printed electronics technology based on novel conductive ink and production process.

OrelTech's Head of R&D, Konstantin Livanov, was kind enough to explain the company's technology and business. Dr. Livanov received his PhD in chemistry from Weizmann Institute of Science, and his expertise is in surface chemistry, nanomaterials, composite materials and electron microscopy.

Q: Hello Dr. Livanov, thank you for your time. First, can you explain ORELTech's process and technology?

Sure. We are doing conducive ink for advanced applications in printed electronics. The advantages of printed electronics are obvious: drastically reduced manufacturing costs due to simpler equipment, fewer fabrication steps and shorter throughput time. However, most organic devices, including OLEDs, are not printed. We could however print them if we could print metal layers at low temperatures. Right now most of them are assembled or deposited in high vacuum.

Samsung may lower its A5 fab production capacity as competition still struggles with low yields and quality

Oct 20, 2017

Earlier this year, reports suggested that Samsung Display is considering a new flexible OLED plant, its largest OLED fab yet. The so called A5 fab was reportedly to have a monthly capacity of between 180,000 to 270,000 6-Gen substrates (it's current largest OLED fab, the A3, will have a monthly capacity of 135,000 substrates when the current expansion phase ends later this year).

A new report from Business Korea suggests that Samsung has confirmed the new fab, and is now debating whether the first phase in the A5 fab will have a capacity of 30,000 or 60,000 monthly substrates. Samsung will start constructing the fab in December 2017. The new fab building alone is estimated at $1.75 billion.

The new cafe installed a large amount of LG Display's rigid and flexible OLED lighting panels to create a grid on the ceiling. The designer SPC Group aimed to create a "striking focal point for the store" while ensuring that the lighting was well distributed over the shop's display areas. LG says that one of the advantages of OLED lighting is the very low heat emission - which is helpful when you offer frozen ice cream...

Samsung shows how its LCD TVs compare to LG's OLED TVs in terms of image retention

Oct 16, 2017

Samsung has published a video showing how 12 hours of gaming effects different TV technologies. Samsung compare's it's own Q-LED (quantum-dots enhanced LED LCD TV) with LG's OLED TVs (the 2017 OLEDB7).

The video shows that following the extensive gaming run, Samsung's TV shows no image retention (burn-in), while some problems are clearly visible on LG's TV.
