Chi Mei Group from Taiwan, a manufacturer of Displays, has chosen Glyn High-Tech Distribution as its distribution and support partner for OLED-Displays (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) in Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
Chi Mei EL Corporation (CMEL), a subsidiary of Chi Mei Group, specialises in the production of small and medium-sized OLED panels. Well-known cell phone manufacturers are among the company’s key customers.
CMEL focuses on Active Matrix OLED products (AM-OLED) and produces these displays in sizes ranging from 2” to 2.8”. A new 4.3” version will go into production this year.
Currently the consumer market is still the main application area of these OLED displays. Modern high-end mobile phones and MP3-players work with main and sub displays based on OLEDs.
They are increasingly being used in industrial applications. Unlike LCD technology, OLEDs do not need backlights and offer higher contrasts combined with wide viewing angles (~180°), a high contrast ratio (up to 10,000:1) and excellent response time.
OLEDs are ideal for hand-held applications due to their low energy consumption, light weight, small dimensions (2mm thin) and the broad temperature range (-20° to +75°C).
