UK's SmartKem announced that they signed a joint-development agreement with a major Asian display OEM. Under the agreement, SmartKem and the display maker will customize Smartkem's p-FLEX organic semiconductor inks for solution-based flexible TFT backplane technology.
SmartKem will formulate, transfer and supply p-FLEX materials to the display maker which will enable production of high-performance TFTs onto plastic substrates through low-temperature processing.
SmartKem says that their materials feature high mobility and high stability. The company says they have successfully launched their products into the display supply chain with "some of the largest players in the market".
