Plastic Logic announced today that it has developed the world's largest flexible organic active matrix display. The display consists of a flexible, high resolution, printed active-matrix backplane driving an electronic paper frontplane from US-based E Ink Corporation.
The display will be shown at the 12th International Displays Workshop in Takamatsu, Japan from December 6/9. Dr Seamus Burns, Plastic Logic's Group Leader for Displays, will give a presentation describing the new display in the Sunport Hall Takamatsu Main Hall on Wednesday 7 December 2005 at 09.50. The displays are 10" diagonal SVGA (600 by 800) with 100ppi resolution and 4 levels of greyscale. The thickness of the display when laminated with E-Ink Imaging Film(TM) is less than 0.4mm. The backplane substrate is made from low temperature PET supplied by DuPont Teijin Films which is more flexible and easier to handle than alternatives such as thin glass or steel foil.
