The insatiable appetite for TVs with massive screens, sharp definition and beautiful colors has made organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology something to keep an eye on, but it’s long been far too expensive. However, on Wednesday, Silicon Valley startup Kateeva debuted a new way to solve that cost challenge with a breakthrough type of OLED printing technology.
If you haven’t yet heard of OLED tech yet, it’s a next-generation, energy efficient technology, which uses organic light emitting diodes for flat panel displays, from cell phones to TVs. Kateeva executives said their printing technology can produce OLED panels at a faster rate and with less faulty ones than the current methods used by most companies. Most standard OLED makers deposit the semiconductors on a substrate covered with a mask, which is removed after it’s coated with the organic materials.
