In 2012 we reported that CPT (Chunghwa Picture Tubes), a Taiwanese LCD and CRT producer, started developing AMOLED panels and established a small-sized pilot line. Today our sources indicate that the company actually started small scale AMOLED production. I don't have a lot of information on CPT's line at this stage.

AIV-BEX also announced that a delegation from the company visited CPT's AMOLED line earlier in October. It seems that the two companies are in talks about a possible technical collaboration. AIV-BEX plans to construct a 4.5-Gen line that uses Oxide-TFT backplanes (CPT is also developing this technology, although the current production line is not using iGZO) and ink-jet printing for the organic material deposition AIV-BEX's line will have a monthly capacity of 30,000 sheets and the plan is to begin production in 2014.
