New Super Thin Display Couples TMD LTPS Technology With CDT P-OLEDs

Cambridgeshire, UNITED KINGDOM


CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom, April 20, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Cambridge Display Technology (CDT) (Nasdaq:OLED), a pioneer in the development of polymer light emitting diode (P-OLED) technology, today announced that a new 20.8 inch, full-color, P-OLED television display demonstrated by Toshiba Matsushita Display Technology (TMD), at the 3rd International FPD Show in Japan, features CDT's light emitting polymer technology.

The super-thin display is based on TMD's LTPS technology coupled with CDT's light emitting polymer technology. The three (RGB) color-emitting layers use polymer organic electroluminescent materials, or P-OLEDs, and an ink-jet type printing process is used for deposition of each color.

"This exhibition of TMD's new P-OLED-based display capabilities marks a significant milestone in the advancement toward commercial adoption of OLEDs as the next-generation display technology and demonstrates one of the key differentiating advantages of P-OLED technology which has long been considered to be the more scalable and practical OLED-based solution for larger substrate sizes," said Dr. David Fyfe, CEO of CDT. "With Sony having already announced plans to produce small OLED televisions before year-end, it is clear that OLED display technology -- with lower power consumption, even thinner form factor than LCD or Plasma technologies, and an enhanced viewing experience -- offers a highly attractive and viable solution for the next generation of displays."

About CDT

Cambridge Display Technology is a pioneer in the development of light emitting polymers (P-OLEDs) and their use in a wide range of electronic display products used for information management, communications and entertainment. P-OLEDs are part of the family of organic light emitting diodes, or OLEDs, which are thin, lightweight and power efficient devices that emit light when an electric current flows. P-OLEDs offer an enhanced visual experience and superior performance characteristics compared with other flat panel display technologies such as liquid crystal displays, and have the key advantage that they can be applied in solution using printing processes. Founded in 1992, the company is headquartered in Cambridge, UK and listed on the U.S. NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol 'OLED.'
