AU Optronics Start OLED Sample Production

DigiTimes:

Viewing that AMOLED has become an increasingly important trend in panel technological development, AUO has therefore resumed development.

AU Optronics (AUO) is currently manufacturing small/medium OLED* samples with volume production planned for in 2012. But China-based competition is fierce: BOE, Irico, Sichuan CCD Display Technology, Visionox, Xiamen Tianma Micro-Electronics. And there’s the 600-pound gorilla: Samsung.

* AMOLED refers to active matrix OLED, and using the term AMOLED is like saying AMLCD instead of LCD. So I just use OLED.
