The company is no longer in business.


AIV-BEX, established in 2012 in Henan Province, China, aimed to produce small/medium AMOLED panels. The company was supposed to setup up a 4.5-Gen (730x920 mm) fab in Xinyang, Henan, to produce Oxide-TFT based OLED panels. AIV-BEX's first planned line was supposed to have a monthly capacity of 30,000 sheets and to begin production towards the end of 2015.

AIV-BEX's project never saw the light of day, and the company shut down.


AIV-BEX's total project cost was estimated at around 30 billion Yuan (or about $4.82 billion). The first line (with the 30,000 monthly sheet capacity) was going to cost 3.6 billion Yuan ($580 million). According information released in October 2014, the project was still on track at that stage.

AIV-BEX was owned by Aivtech International Group, a NASDAQ-listed (ticker:AIVI) shenzhen based maker of audio&video products. The BEX part of the name stands for "Blue Excitation".

Ambicare Health

Ambicare Health (previously Lumicure) was an early stage, privately held company, based in Dundee, Scotland, that developed low cost, portable (ambulatory) and disposable light sources to be used in Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) and cosmetic skin treatment. The light sources were based on OLEDs and Inorganic LEDs.

Ambicare secured 5M$ in funding in early 2009, and later launched their PDT product which used LEDs and not OLEDs. In late 2009 we interviewed their CEO. It seems as if the company is no longer in business.
