BOE plans to produce plastic-based flexible OLEDs at the Gen-5.5 fab in Ordos

China's BOE Display has been discussing its 5.5-Gen LTPS fab in Ordos for a long time, and a couple of months ago it seems that construction finally began. In a new report from China, it seems that BOE aims to produce flexible OLED panels at that fab. BOE will produce plastic-based AMOLEDs using an LTPS backplane.

Previously we reported that it is expected that BOE will only start mass producing AMOLEDs at Ordos by the end of 2014. BOE's AMOLED fab will reportedly use high-resolution FMM deposition and a WRGB architecture (which doesn't make a lot of sense since you do not need FMM patterning for WRGB OLEDs).

In October 2013 we reported that BOE are also working towards a Gen-8 Oxide-TFT line in Hefei. Now in a different report from China it is stated that the Hefei fab will have a monthly production capacity of 90,000 substrates for LCD displays. BOE will also allocate 2,000 substrates each month for AMOLED production.
