Samsung SDI Co. Ltd unveils what it claimed is the world's thinnest active-matrix OLED (AM-OLED) display module for cellphones. The display uses low-temperature polysilicon technology.

Samsung SDI said its 0.52mm-thin, 2.2-inch AM-OLED module approaches the dimensions of a 1.7mm TFT-LCD module considered to be the slimmest among the existing LCD modules available for mass production. "We plan to mass produce the new AM-OLED module during the third quarter of this year," said Yoo Eui-Jin, vice president of AM-OLED business at Samsung SDI. He added that Samsung SDI is "completely ready now" to begin volume production of the new module once orders are received. The new module, developed using Samsung's proprietary "module slimming" technology, features QVGA (240 x 320) resolution and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio.

Samsung SDI said the display module power consumption, on average, is as much as 40 percent less than the existing TFT-LCDs. Samsung expects to produce about 15 million AM-OLED modules per month for a wide range of handset displays, according to Yoo.
