CLAP introduces Organic Thin Film Transistor (OTFT) application technology at CES 2023
Broad patent portfolio of high-performance organic materials
Providing eco-friendly solutions-Low carbon emission effect in the OTFT manufacturing process
OTFT application prototypes in fingerprint recognition sensor/transparent Micro LED/Smart Glass
CLAP (CEO Sungho Kim, www.clap.co.kr), a company specializing in materials and parts for organic semiconductors and displays, participates in CES 2023, the world's largest consumer electronics and information technology exhibition, held at the Las Vegas Convention Center in the United States from January 5th to 8th. and exhibits Organic Thin Film Transistor (OTFT) application prototype.
OTFT has the advantage of manufacturing devices inexpensively with various coating processes (solution materials) without expensive deposition equipment, and it is possible to manufacture devices on plastic films such as PET, COP, and PEN in a low-temperature process (below 120℃). It is a next-generation TFT that can make products that are not bent or easily broken. As a driving substrate for Flexible Electronics that requires flexible functions, the possibility of using OTFT is very high. In addition to flexible characteristics, it is possible to provide various sensor solutions for IoT infrastructure and various form factors such as bendable, rollable, and wearable.
In particular, the OTFT manufacturing process is eco-friendly. In the process, if the organic semiconductor and insulator contain the photoreactive material (CLAP’s Crosslinker : XL-100), direct patterning of the TFT becomes possible. The process can be reduced to 1/3 of the existing method using photoresist and reactive ion etching (RIE), hence obtaining an eco-friendly effect such as low carbon emission. This is one of the differentiated solutions of CLAP OTFT.
At this CES 2023, CLAP prepared an exhibition booth in the IoT Infrastructure Sector (Korea Sensor Pavilion, Booth No. 10824) to showcase OLED Mobile large-screen fingerprint recognition sensor solutions based on Organic Semiconductor materials and Active Matrix driving prototypes for transparent Micro LED.
