Titel STMicroelectronics and MicroOLED Move to Revolutionize High-Resolution Micro-Displays for Consumer Applications
Bericht Geneva, August 30, 2012 – STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications and a leading supplier of imaging technologies, today announced a strategic agreement with MicroOLED, a Grenoble, France-based company dedicated to the development and commercialization of state-of-the-art organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), as well as a minority equity investment of approximately 6 million Euros in the company. With exceptionally high resolution and extremely low power consumption that is the most power efficient on the market, OLEDs are ideally suited to micro-displays in a wide range of portable applications, spanning from camera viewfinders, video goggles to medical and security applications. At about half the power consumption of competitive displays, MicroOLED’s cutting-edge technology provides superior pixel density for enhanced image quality. The technology produces OLEDs with pixel densities double those of alternate displays and contrast ratios 10 to 100x better. To complement these technology advantages, ST brings its outstanding manufacturing machine, broad consumer-market expertise, and deep IP portfolio, in the form of design, development and supply services for new micro-displays, targeting a broader range of customers and applications with the next generation of the technology. ST owns several fully integrated CMOS processes that will be used to develop a complete product roadmap. With a large portfolio of design IP, ST will contribute to better integrate micro-display functions that today are on external controllers, which add cost and complexity to the final solution. ST’s experience in designing for low-power is key to enabling applications like video goggles.
