Cambridge Display Technology to Showcase High Resolution P-OLED Based QVGA Display At SID

CDT Demonstrates Capability to Produce 160 ppi High Resolution P-OLED Displays Using Inkjet Printing

Cambridgeshire, UNITED KINGDOM

CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom, May 22, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Cambridge Display Technology (CDT) (Nasdaq:OLED) today announced that it will showcase a high resolution QVGA display at the SID 2007 Conference in Long Beach, California.

The 160 ppi three inch full color display incorporates CDT's P-OLED technology and was produced by CDT using a Litrex Gen 2 inkjet printer on amorphous Si TFT substrates provided by Casio. The company stated that since starting the project in fall of 2006, CDT has been able to demonstrate that it can achieve the accuracy required to produce the displays over 14" substrates.

The achievement of printing 160 ppi high resolution is the combination of Casio backplane design, Litrex printer droplet accuracy, CDT's know-how on ink formulation, and optimized print strategy.

"With materials development progressing rapidly via our Sumation joint venture and inks and printers becoming more robust, the opportunity for companies like Casio to adopt a P-OLED based commercial solution for displays continues to grow," said Dr. David Fyfe, chairman and CEO of CDT.

About CDT

Cambridge Display Technology is a pioneer in the development of polymer organic light emitting diodes (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 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'. In 2005, CDT and Sumitomo Chemical established a joint venture called Sumation(r) which develops, manufactures and sells P-OLED materials to the display industry.
