FlexEnable CEO Chuck Milligan says organic LCD technology 'going into mass production'
FlexEnable CEO Chuck Milligan has said the company's organic LCD technology is going into mass production this year.
He was speaking after being appointed as a member of the Organic and Printed Electronics Association's (OE-A) new board of directors at its annual general assembly in Munich, Germany.
The OE-A represents the whole value chain in the industry.
Chuck said: “During my mandate I will work to continue to strengthen OE-A’s position as the leading organisation for organic and printed electronics on a global basis, such that members can leverage the OE-A platform to create partnerships and achieve growth.
“The organic and printed electronics industry has developed immensely in the last 15 years and many products are ready for real applications. FlexEnable’s organic LCD technology, which is going to be in mass production this year, is just one example of how organic electronics can be industrialised and enable game-changing products.”
Based on Cambridge Science Park, FlexEnable has developed the world's first flexible electronics technology platform that allows electronics made of organic materials to be manufactured on flexible plastic film, the thickness of a sheet of paper.
This can be used to create glass-free, flexible displays and sensors for multiple industries including consumer electronics, automotive, digital signage, wearables, medical and security.
Stan Farnsworth, of NovaCentrix, was appointed as chairman of the OE-A board.
