03/19/2014 Today, GaN on Sapphire is the main stream technology for LED manufacturing. GaN-on-Si technology appeared naturally as an alternative to sapphire to reduce cost.
03/10/2014 Following the boom in expansion of the Chinese LED market in 2011, many industry insiders and analysts speculated on whether the Chinese would be able to sustain the growth, or if many companies simply ordered an excessive amount of MOCVD reactors just to benefit from government subsidies.
01/23/2014 The work undertaken demonstrates progress towards optimum Organic Semiconductor (OSC)/OTFT processing and performance to enable their integration into ultra-flexible active matrix organic light emitting diode AMOLED backplanes.
12/23/2013 With a flood of new competitors set to initiate or increase the production of active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) panels next year, demand for materials used to make AMOLEDs is forecast to rise by nearly 27 percent in 2014.
10/29/2013 The TV market has experienced a significant slowdown in growth over the past couple of years and, with OLEDs delayed, there have been no significant new premium features to drive consumer interest and spur replacement demand.
10/18/2013 Wireless video, network interfaces, multi-format decoders, LED backlighting boost average semiconductor content per TV.
10/16/2013 Largely driven by demand from upscale Samsung smartphones, particularly the Galaxy S4, global shipments of high-end active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) display panels posted impressive sequential growth of 16 percent in the second quarter.
This paper provides an introduction to UV LED curing and the many benefits UV LED curing provides for bonding and coating applications in the electronics industry. Product manufacturers, machine builders, and chemistry formulators will gain an understanding of the benefits and how to apply UV LED curing in manufacturing processes. Included are specific examples of how manufacturers are using UV LED to make touch screens, mobile phones, micro speakers, and hard disk drives.April 03, 2014Sponsored by Phoseon Technology
Electronic systems have revolutionized our lives. We use
them in nearly all of our daily activities, for communication,
computing, navigation, entertainment, payment processing,
and more. They are the workhorses in many medical,
transportation, aerospace, and military systems, performing
functions such as automated control, data analysis, and
pattern recognition.February 10, 2014Sponsored by Master Bond, Inc.,

April 30 at 2:00 p.m. ET. Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), such as actuators, sensors and resonators, rely on the interactions between multiple physical effects. In this webinar, we will show how a multiphysics simulation approach allows you to combine electrical, thermal and structural effects accurately in order to design reliable and high-performance MEMS devices.
May 2014 (date and time TBD) MEMS have quite different process and material requirements compared to mainstream microprocessor and memory types of devices. This webcast will explore the latest trends in MEMS devices – including sensor fusion, biosensors, energy harvesting – new manufacturing challenges and potential equipment and materials solutions to those challenges.
May 2014 (date and time TBD) Advanced packages rely on high-performance materials – die-attach film, solder bumps, conductive adhesive, underfill, TIM – to ensure reliability, fine-pitch interconnect, thermal management, and chip performance are optimized. Learn about the latest assembly materials and how they can improve the package, speed packaging throughput, and even lower packaging costs in the webcast.
