從LG的彈性AMOLED技術的開發:該公司的專利組合分析 Development of LG's Flexible AMOLED Technology From its Patent Portfolios
出版日期: 2016年01月26日 內容資訊: 英文 13 Pages
簡介

LG的彈性AMOLED顯示器──柔軟彎曲的有機LED顯示器──的發展歷史,是從2007年利用金屬箔基板的3.5英吋式顯示器時開始的(但此時當是試驗階段)。2012年公開了全球第一個利用塑膠基板的彈性AMOLED (POLED) ,這就成了該公司大量生產的原型。隨著技術競爭力的提升,LG成為第1代Apple Watch用面板的壟斷供應商。Apple產品用面板的主要供應商LG的顯示器技術,可望受到市場高度關注。

LG's initial development of flexible AMOLED displays focused on the use of metal-foil substrates as evidenced by its 3.5-inch flexible AMOLED display launched in 2007, although it was only a pilot product. After showcasing its first flexible EPD (E-Paper Display) with a plastic substrate in 2012, LG unveiled its first plastic substrate-based flexible AMOLED display on SID in 2013, which became the prototype of LG's mass produced flexible AMOLED displays. With these technological competencies, LG has become an exclusive panel supplier for the first-generation Apple Watch. Since LG is a key panel supplier for Apple, the company's display technology developments have created significant market interest. This report analyzes LG's flexible display patents and its recent flexible AMOLED display developments to unveil its AMOLED development focuses and mass production plans.
