Honeywell plans to develop materials for the flexible electronics used in flat-panel television displays. The company entered into an agreement to develop the components with the U.S. Display Consortium in San Jose, Calif. The consortium is a partnership of public and private manufacturers and developers of flat-panel displays. HoneywellÂs contribution will be for military use.
The company says its electronic materials division will develop materials to prevent short circuits in flexible organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays. OLED display screens are thinner and use less power than liquid crystal displays. Honeywell says the new material will be tested at Arizona State UniversityÂs Flexible Display Center in Phoenix, which receives U.S. Army funding to develop flexible technology.
