US OLED microdisplay developer eMagin has installed new tooling software, allowing for automated operation of its display production.
The move allows eMagin to increase deposition capacity and speed up production of its small OLED displays. The company has already supplied sample displays from the new production equipment, which replaces the current tooling, reports Herald Online. The new machine provides significant advantages, including more up time, reduced maintenance, improved consistency, higher overall quality, greater speed of production and higher yield. The company believes this will allow them to satisfy interest in the technology from its customers, including the US military.
The company's displays are nearing the completion of a 1,000 hour lifetime test, which eMagin states is seeing positive results.
