Plastic Logic showcases e-paper R&D initiatives
Check out the world's first colour flexible plastic display with video rate driven by OTFTs
Plastic Logic opened the doors of it's Cambridge lab on 27 June, to give journalists and analysts an insight into some of its research and development projects. As well as demonstrating the world's first colour flexible plastic display with video rate driven by organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs), the company was also keen to show off some of its other innovations, including, transmissive backplanes, ultra-thin form factors and plastic displays embedded with silicon chips.
Plastic Logic was keen to show that its processes are scalable – from individual transistors (represented at the front), through 4-inch displays that verify how the transistors work together, to 14-inch displays that test the uniformity and scalability of the manufacture process. The large plane at the back is larger than an A1 sheet of paper, and contains nine standard displays. Although the Cambridge R&D centre manufactures displays individually, they can be mass produced on larger sheets like this.
