Summer School for Buyers: Mobile OLED Displays

In the first few classes in EBN’s summer school for buyers, we’ve looked at the technology behind organic light emitting diode (OLED) and display driver integrated circuits (DDIC). Now, in this final installment, let’s talk about the end result of these technologies being leveraged: the displays themselves.   OLED displays are becoming increasingly commonplace, representing…

Summer School for Buyers: OLED Displays

As technology evolves, the bill of material (BOM) on new products change along with them. For the procurement department, that translates, often, into new product lines, new vendors, and a variety of supply chain changes. In this four-part series, we’ll do a quick recap of how Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology works and how…

Shared Data Mitigates Supply Chain Cost of Electronics Counterfeiting

Electronics counterfeiting is gaining attention as evidenced by the recent IEEE International Symposium on Hardware Oriented Security and Trust chaired by Professor Mark Tehranipoor.  More than 250 industry and academic leaders attended the conference to address the growing threat that counterfeit devices are posing to the security of the electronics supply chain.  Inadvertent use of…

The Next-Gen of Digital Displays: Holographic Optical Elements

Advances in light-emitting diode (LED) technology continue to bring new opportunities in digital displays. Existing optical technologies are also benefiting from the LED boom, specifically holographic optical elements (HOEs). Holographic optical elements are holographic images embedded onto a thin, clear photopolymer film that can be applied to glass or plastic surfaces. When a light source,…

Flexible OLED Displays: Overcoming Barriers to Mass Commercialization with High-Yield Manufacturing Processes

Technology experts have been tracking and forecasting the flexible OLED display market for years now, assessing the technology’s promise and potential for disrupting the consumer electronics market, and eagerly watching OEMs’ public demonstrations of early prototype flexible displays. And yet many of us would be surprised to learn that flexible OLED display technology has already…

Designing Displays to Take the Drop

Once in the hands of users, you know that just about every portable or hand-held device will be dropped. Humans do that. Because LCD displays are made of thin glass and glass can break, that reality creates some design challenges. While making a display completely unbreakable is impossible, optimizing drop-test performance with a system level…
