Universal Display has partnered with AIXTRON AG of Aachen, Germany, a leading manufacturer of precision semiconductor production equipment for inorganic LEDs, to develop and commercialize OVPD equipment.
Universal Display has exclusively licensed AIXTRON to make and sell its own OVPD equipment and to sublicense Universal Display's OVPD process technology for use with that equipment.
Aixtron AG, a leading German equipment manufacturer, will manufacture and sell OVPD equipment under exclusive license from UDC.
In addition to the OVPD patent, they include key patents in a number of areas, such as flexible OLEDs (FOLEDsTM), high efficiency phosphorescent OLEDs (PHOLEDs TM) and transparent OLEDs (TOLEDs TM).
OVPD began transmitting on the frequency several weeks ago.
If that equipment fails, OVPD could maintain communications on the new frequency using TEP's antenna, which is based in the nearby Tortolita Mountains.
process and its large substrates will be focused on qualification of new components.
OVPD offers the ability to precisely control the multi-source deposition required for full-color OLED displays.
