The Flexible Electronics and Display Centre at Arizona State University (FEDC) recently revealed that its success in manufacturing the world's largest OLED prototype using advanced mixed oxide thin film transistors (TFTs). Measuring 14.7 diagonal inches, the device was developed at the FEDC in conjunction with Army Research Labs scientists.

The FEDC is a governmentindustryacademia partnership that's advancing full-colour flexible electronics and display technology while fostering the development of a manufacturing ecosystem to support the rapidly growing market for flexible electronic devices.

"Mixed oxide TFTs offer a highly cost-effective approach for manufacturing displays that deliver high performance, including vibrant colours, high switching speeds for video and reduced power consumptionall features that will be required for the next generation of consumer electronics," said Nick Colaneri, Director of the FEDC. "Furthermore, mixed oxide TFTs can be manufactured on existing amorphous silicon production lines, eliminating the need for specialised equipment and processing, thereby reducing costs compared to competitive approaches."

The new device also meets a critical target set by the U.S. Department of Defence to advance the development of full-colour, full-motion video flexible OLED displays for use in thin, lightweight, bendable and highly rugged devices. This latest version includes advancements in both the OLED materials to enhance performance as well as the encapsulation processes used to protect the display.
