Where can i get OLED displays

  1. Ive been working on some projects for university and my lectuerer has
    suggested that i replace a LCD screen with an OLED one. The scrren
    does not have to be full color but it could be an option. I simply
    need a screen which can be used to display high visibility text. LED
    was an option but is to power hungry,

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Digikey carries some of the OLED displayes from OSRAM
    (www.osram-os.com). Search digikey for "osram oled".

    Crystal clear, super bright OLED LCD (128x128) for your microcontroller.
    Simple serial RX/TX interface. Many memory sizes.

    Wayne,

    Do the universities still put emphasis on proper spelling?

    No they gave that up when someone successfully sued an university for
    discriminating the spelling impaired. This was right after some 800
    lbs student sued the cafeteria because their door were too narrow for
    him.
     
  6. yeah yeah i know ;o) i keep forgetting to run the spell check in
    firefox, i noticed once the post when up. Thanks for the replies, its
    just been difficult finding them in the regular haunts, such as rapid
    and farnell.

    Heh I don't bother with spell checker. I rarely make any typo and
    when I do, it's usually easy to overlook them.

    If you want an OLED device and not just the module, I saw a video and
    mp3 player at Toys R Us foir about $50 that features 1" OLED display
    and claims to play video for up to 1 hour on internal batteries, 2
    hours for music. Its tiny 128MB memory and no expansion slot is the
    reason I passed =P

    I think I'll wait for when there are pocket TV with 2.5" or larger
    OLED display.
     
  8. I take it they're limited in screen sizes at the moment, the way one
    of the professors were talking about OLEDs he said they are quite
    common and come in a variety of sizes, from the tiny to the large,
    though he might not of been referring to the commercial markets. From
    what I have seen the screens are no where near the same size as a
    modest AMLCD screen.

    ..95" to 1.69" are reasonably common, 2.2" are around, and in the near
    future, there should be 2.6" and 3.32" panels.

    The biggest OLED screen I've seen was 40" diagonal, a TV
    screen demo at a display conference a couple of years back.
    Shown by, as I recall, Samsung, but this was by no means
    a production panel.

    The biggest OLEDs I've seen offered commercially so far
    are still in the neighborhood of 5" diagonal and under.

    One big problem facing OLED technology right now is the
    fact that no matter how good it gets, performance-wise, there
    has been a HUGE investment in LCD manufacturing
    infrastructure over the past decade, and that will not be
    lightly or easily abandoned - not while the LCD still provides
    sufficiently good performance to meet market needs.
