Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (Fraunhofer IPMS)

Fraunhofer IPMS LogoThe Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (Fraunhofer IPMS) has over 200 employees, doing research in electronic, mechanical and optical components and their integration into devices and systems.

The Fraunhofer IPMS has been working on OLED since 2000, and in 2009 launched a new department called COMEDD (the Center for Organics, Materials and Electronic Devices Dresden) to handle its OLED research and pilot fabrication. COMEDD was turned into an independent Fraunhofer Institute in 2012 and now it is a business unit at Fraunhofer FEP.

Fraunhofer FEP

Fraunhofer FEP logoFraunhofer FEP (The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology) is a research institute that focuses on innovative solutions in the fields of vacuum coating, surface treatment and organic semi­conductors.

The core competences technologies for the organic electronics and IC/system design are electron beam technology, sputtering, plasma-activated deposition and high-rate PECVD. The Fraunhofer FEP offers a wide range of possibilities for research, development and pilot production, especially for OLED microdisplays, organic and inorganic sensors, optical filters and flexible OLED lighting as well as the processing, sterilization, structuring and refining of surfaces.

IGNIS Innovation

IGNIS Innovation, established in Canada in 2000, specializes in providing technologies in the areas of pixel circuits and driver packages for AMOLED displays.

IGNIS focuses on developing AMOLED backplane solutions using industry standard amorphous silicon (with compensation) polysilicon or other TFT technologies. They also develop specialized driver electronics and related OLED IP. Towards the end of 2013, Ignis started shipping 55” AMOLED MaxLife prototype samples to potential clients. Ignis is developing AMOLED panels based on LTPS backplanes in collaboration with China's CSoT.

Philips

Philips logoRoyal Philips Electronics is one of the world's biggest electronics companies and Europe's largest.

Philips used to develop both OLED displays and OLED lighting. The company withdrew from the display industry in 2007 (it's Philips brand TVs are now developed and marketed by TP Vision) and in 2015 Philips sold its OLED lighting business unit to US-based OLEDWorks (which continues to offer OLED panels under the Lumiblade brand).

Holst Centre

Holst Centre was setup in 2005 by IMEC (Belgium) and TNO (Holland), with government support. The center is located in Eindhoven, and has around 200 employees and over 20 industrial partners.

CSEM

CSEM logoCSEM, the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology is a privately held, knowledge-based company carrying out applied research work, product development, prototype, and low-volume production.
