QD-OLED technology, which plans to combine the advantages of QD and OLED displays, begins production tests next month.
line, dubbed Q1, at its factory in Asan, was designed to produce
QD-OLED(organic light emitting diode) panels. QD-OLED will be the first iteration
of Samsung Display’s so-called QD displays.
QD-OLED technology, which plans to combine the advantages of QD and OLED displays, begins production tests next month. If things go well, the first products will hit the market late next year
Samsung, the leader of the display market, continues its efforts to offer more efficient screens with different technologies. QD-OLED screens , one of them, will start the testing process next month.
What is QD-OLED?
OLED technology , which we also define as organic LED , contains hydrocarbon-based film structures, each consisting of pixels that can be turned on and off on their own. Thus, perfect black colors and contrasts are achieved. Energy efficiency is also at the top level.
However, OLED production is still very costly, especially in large screens. Samsung has also adopted QLED technology in the mainstream television segment. QLED displays, known as Quantum LEDs, use quantum dots made of semiconductor nano crystals instead of organic structures.
These structures produce monochrome red, blue and green colors. Thus, images with increased brightness and liveliness are obtained. QLED screens are more advantageous in terms of both energy efficiency and cost.
Still, Samsung does not hesitate to try different technologies. The new hybrid display technology, defined as QD-OLED, combines quantum dots and organic-based pixel structures. Thus, deep blacks, brighter colors and energy efficiency can be achieved on a single screen.
Test production will begin next month at Asan facilities for the production of QD-OLED displays. Asan facilities have lines to produce screens with dimensions of 2200mmx2500mm. In July, Samsung had integrated all the necessary equipment into the facilities.
If success is achieved in test production, volume production starts within 3 months. Production efficiency is brought to the required levels within 6 months. So we can see the first QD-OLED displays late next year.
QNED technology is also in line
Samsung plans to invest around $ 11 billion in QD-OLED technology by 2025. After this technology, the transition will be made to QNED technology. In QNED technology, which has the Quantum Dot Nanorod LED expansion, oxide TFT and quantum dots are used.
Unlike the ink jet method, nanorod LEDs are sprayed into the pixel area. The pixels are then aligned with electrical signals. QNED will be able to achieve even more impressive contrast ratios, brightness levels and response times. In addition, more efficient mini-LED displays, which are currently made up of mini LED modules, are among the technologies Samsung has invested in.
