Touch Taiwan 2015: Foldable, rollable LEDs rule

Posted: 01 Sep 2015 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:touch screen? wearable? OLED? FlexUP?

As demand smartphones and tablets slows this year, the touch screen industry must find ways to remain dynamic.

Taiwan's Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), one of the world's largest electronics R&D organisations, may have the answer. ITRI has unveiled several new technologies to lead development of low-cost wearable devices that can be folded and rolled up in a scroll.

At the Touch Taiwan show ended on August 28, ITRI demonstrated flexible OLED touch panels based on the organisation's proprietary FlexUP (flexible universal panel) technology for OLED production on today's TFT-LCD equipment. The manufacturing process is compatible with existing substrates, light-emitting layers and touch manufacturing processes.

EE Times provides a glimpse of some of the new technologies as well as other exhibitors on the show floor in the following pages.
