Organic EL Display (using CGS® technology)

Organic EL display is expected to be the mainstream display of the next generation.
Our organic EL technology employs an active matrix type display using CGS technology.
This method is suitable for a display with a large number of pixels. Such a display comprises nearly one million pixels, each of which has an organic EL element provided with TFTs. By controlling current supply to each pixel, longer life and lower power consumption can be achieved.
We have obtained many fundamental patents for this technology, nationally as well as internationally.
