SEMI & Yole Webcast – When Do I Get My Rollable TV and Foldable Cell Phone? Technologies and Roadmaps for Flexible Display TFT BackplaneRegister now
Yole Développement will be pleased to give its vision of the Flexible Displays market during the webcast “When Do I Get My Rollable TV and Foldable Cell Phone? Technologies and Roadmaps for Flexible Display TFT Backplanes” organized by SEMI, FlexTech and Yole Développement.
This webast will take place on June 29, 6:00 PM (CEST) – REGISTER HERE
Webcast overview: This webinar, brought to you by SEMI, FlexTech and Yole Developpment, will first provide a brief overview of key enabling technologies and major remaining roadblocks for flexible displays (substrates, backplane and frontplanes). We will then review available and emerging TFT backplanes technologies for flexible displays and focus on the current status and potential of organic semiconductors TFTs (OTFTs).
Organic semiconductors appeared in the mid 1980’s but it’s not until the mid 2000’s that performance increased to be on par with industry standard amorphous –Si and the technology started getting the attention of display makers. Another decade later, mobility comparable to oxides TFTs have been demonstrated in the lab.
Organic TFTs could enable truly flexible AMOLED displays with bending radius below 1 mm. The technology can easily be implemented in older, fully depreciated a-Si fabs with minimum capex and produce high performance displays. This presentation will sort through the hype and misconceptions and provide an update on the status and roadmap for organic semiconductor displays.
The webinar will be presented by Eric Virey, Ph.D., Senior Market and Technology Analyst for LED, Saphire, and Displays. Moderator will be Ann-Marie Dutron, Senior Director with SEMI Europe, organizers of 2016FLEX Europe, October 25-28, 2016.

Dr Eric Virey serves as a Senior Market and Technology Analyst and has contributed to the development of sapphire & LED activities at Yole Développement (Yole), the “More than Moore” market research and strategy consulting company. Eric has a broad knowledge of the sapphire, solid state lighting and display industries:
– Since 2009, he authored multiple Yole’s reports including “Status of the LED Industry”, “LED Manufacturing Technologies”, “LED Packaging”, “LED Front End Manufacturing”, LED Phosphor and Quantum Dots”, “TFT Backplanes for flexible displays” and the sapphire reports collection.
– Eric has also contributed to multiple custom projects with Yole Finance such as the identification of investments or acquisition targets, due diligence on the buy and sell side etc…
– Dr Virey has also spoken in more than 25 industry conferences and has been interviewed or quoted in multiple media over the world including The Wall Street Journal, CNN, Fox News, CNBC, Bloomberg, Financial Review, Forbes, L’Usine Nouvelle, MIT’s Technology Review, Photonic Spectra etc…
Before that, he’s held various R&D, engineering, manufacturing and marketing positions with Fortune 500 Company Saint-Gobain in France and the United States. Those included a 5 year tenure as Market Manager in charge of Sapphire substrates and materials for optical telecoms and displays, a 3-year cross functional corporate position where he acted across multiple business units as a market and technology evangelist to identify and develop new business opportunities in solid state lighting (LED/OLEDs).
Dr Eric Virey holds a Ph-D in Optoelectronics from the National Polytechnic Institute of Grenoble.
