Paper Abstract

Organic light emitting diode (OLED) display is an emerging flat panel display technology, with initial products such as passive matrix addressed displays for cell phones and automobile audio systems already on the market. AM OLEDs (Active matrix Organic light emitting diode displays) have a potential to replace backlit AM LCDs (Active matrix liquid crystal displays) because of they can be potentially more power efficient, weigh less, have better image quality, more rugged and lower cost. Already, there have been impressive AM OLED technology demonstrations such as 13-inch SVGA display by Sony. The market for OLED based displays is estimated to reach 1.7 B dollars / Year in 2006. While the probability for successful development of AM OLEDs for consumer applications is reasonably high, additional progress needs to be made before this technology becomes a viable candidate for cockpit display applications. In the following we will review the current AM OLED technology with respect to OLED materials, device structures, device efficiency and lifetime, display addressing and display performance. This is followed by a discussion of the display image quality, lifetime, and environmental performance requirements of the AM OLED for use as a cockpit display. The display performance parameters requiring improvement are highlighted. Comparisons are made between AM OLED and AM LCD with respect to key performance parameters for cockpit display applications.
