Our P-OLED technology has the potential to drive OLED adoption by significantly lowering the cost of producing OLED displays. P-OLED materials are solution processable, which enables them to be deposited on panels using processes such as high precision ink jet printing.
P-OLED materials can form stable solutions in organic solvents, making inks which can be deposited in pixel patterns using ink-jet and other printing techniques. Low-cost spin-coating is also available for monochrome or area color displays.
P-OLEDs are part of the family of Organic Light Emitting Diodes, or OLEDs, which are matrixes of organic diodes that emit light when an electric current flows. OLEDs are thin, lightweight and power efficient devices used in flat panel displays, or FPDs, and other applications. P-OLEDs offer an enhanced visual experience compared with alternative FPD technologies, such as liquid crystal displays, or LCD.

Microdisplays are used today primarily as electronic viewfinders in digital still cameras and video camcorders. Microdisplays are an emerging display technology that are magnified or projected through the use of optics. The microdisplays use proprietary ferroelectric liquid crystal on silicon, or FLCOS, technology, which offers an image quality in the viewfinder of digital still cameras and video camcorders. The licensed viewfinders have several advantages over standard optical viewfinders, including the ability to properly frame images on the viewfinder of a camera with high optical zoom. Additionally, the microdisplays incorporate proprietary controller and interface features that provide customers with a highly integrated microdisplay solution that is small in size, low in cost, low in voltage and shortens their product design times. Many of the leading digital still camera and video camcorder brands, including Concord Camera, Hewlett-Packard, JVC, Kyocera, Minolta and Sony, use or have used the licensed microdisplays in their electronic viewfinders.
