Futaba Corporation has announced production availability of its flexible, passive-matrix OLED displays. The displays are being made at its plant in Kitaibaraki, Japan. This ultra-thin display is 0.3mm in overall thickness with a 1.4-in. diagonal, black and white format, supporting a resolution of 128 x 16 pixels at a minimum luminance of 600 cd/m2. The display can be formed around any curved object with a radius of 40mm or larger. Its other notable benefits are that it is shatterproof -- thereby easier to handle in assembly production lines -- and very lightweight, an advantage for wearable devices. Wearables is one of the major intended markets for the product.
