Plastic Logic Wins Award for Innovation in Flexible Display Manufacturing
CAMBRIDGE, England, February 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
Plastic Logic is proud to announce that the company has been awarded the prestigious
FLEXI 2013 R&D Award for the development of a scalable manufacturing process for
integrating a colour filter array on a flexible plastic display.
Having already developed and qualified its process for the manufacture of monochrome
flexible plastic displays [http://www.plasticlogic.com/technology ], Plastic Logic then
went on to develop a process enabling the manufacture of full colour plastic, unbreakable
displays. This achievement has been made possible by a radical new colour filter alignment
process, which minimises distortion and enables perfect alignment of the flexible layers.
The resulting display exceeds the colour performance of standard EPD-based glass displays,
due to the reduced absorption and reflections seen with the plastic colour filter. These
flexible plastic colour displays, showing 4096 colours at a resolution of 75 ppi, are now
fully commercially available.
This innovative process is of particular significance, since it could enable
unbreakable, flexible display solutions with other media such as LCD and OLED.
The FLEXI Awards are presented annually during the FLEX Conference to companies
leading the development of the flexible and printed electronics industry with innovative
and commercially visible technologies. Sponsored by the FlexTech Alliance, the FLEX R&D
Award is presented for demonstrating world-class innovative research, technology
development and an original product concept. The award committee also takes into account
the potential impact of the work on significant commercial potential for implementation
into flexible or printed electronics when considering the nominations.
The FLEXI 2013 R&D Award was presented to Indro Mukerjee, CEO Plastic Logic by Michael
Ciesinski, President & CEO of the FlexTech Alliance during the FLEX Conference industry
dinner on 31 January 2013 in Phoenix (AZ), USA. Indro Mukerjee stated: “Plastic Logic’s
innovative process for the manufacturing of high-quality, colour flexible plastic displays
is a huge breakthrough and I am delighted that it has received specific recognition from
the FlexTech Alliance. The need for unbreakable and flexible electronic systems is the
next frontier and our displays are enabling companies to reach that frontier today.
Plastic Logic is actively promoting its flexible plastic displays to OEMs and product
manufacturers from a wide range of markets, include mobile devices, document replacement
solutions, signage, healthcare, sportswear and automotive.”
