Frontline Technology: Flexible AMOLEDs for Low-Power, Rugged Applications

Flexible AMOLEDs equipped with phosphorescent OLEDs are well-positioned for low-power, rugged, full-color video applications. Replacing glass with flexible substrates and thin-film encapsulation makes displays thinner, lighter, and non-breakable - all attractive features for portable applications. With enhanced flexibility and low power consumption, a range of revolutionary opportunities are being created.

Enabling Technology: What's Next for e-Readers?

E-readers are not yet commodity items, although they are selling briskly. This year's unit sales are predicted to be twice those of last year. And, in many ways, e-book technology is still in its early stages. E-book file compatibility is still being sorted out, and future versions of e-readers will offer many features not widely seen today, including color displays, video capability, ruggedness, and flexibility.

Intellectual Property: Patent Licensing in the Display Industry: A Primer

Especially in the fast-changing environment of display technology, companies should know the facts when it comes to intellectual property. What is IP, whose is it, and how can it be protected? Although the legal language can be daunting, this is vital information for anyone doing business in the display arena. Information Display will be offering articles throughout the next several months from several intellectual property experts. This is the first article in a series of four from law firm McKenna Long & Aldrige, written to provide an overview of patent licensing for the perspective of information display managers.
