FlexEnable’s Semiconductor Enables Uniform Plastic FPDs

FlexEnable, working with the UK government and other partners, has developed a proof-of-concept plastic LCD display.

The project is known as PORSCHED (Printable Organic Semiconductors for Highly Enhanced Displays). FlexEnable worked on it with Flexink, Imperial College London and the University of Cambridge, with funding from the government’s Innovate UK scheme. The aim was to create an organic semiconductor that would ensure film uniformity for large-area flat-panel displays. The plastic LCD demonstrator is proof of the semiconductor’s performance.

FlexEnable CEO Chuck Milligan says that the semiconductor can drive “full colour video” on the plastic LCD display.
