Display production equipment maker Sunic System said on Tuesday that it will be supplying its deposition machine for OLED on silicon (OLEDoS) to Chinese display panel maker SeeYa.
The deal is worth 32.2 billion won and the contract will last until June of 2024.
OLEDoS is a microdisplay that is touted for use in expanded reality devices. Sunic System’s machine is for white-OLED that uses color filters.
As silicon is not transparent like glass used in conventional display panels, a different alignment technology is used when the organic material is deposited.
Align key used to place the shadow mask for deposition is apparent when it comes to glass substrates.
But as silicon is not transparent, additional optical technology is required to check the alignment.
Sunic System has so far supplied its deposition machine for OLEDoS three times.
It supplied to SeeYa for the first time in 2018 through a deal worth 29.5 billion won. In 2020, it also supplied the machine to BOE for 27.6 billion won.
Meanwhile, SeeYa is increasing its supply of OLEDoS to the market. It collaborates with drone maker DJI and is also reportedly aiming to supply the panels to Apple.
BOE is also using Sunic System’s deposition machine to supply OLEDoS.
Sunic System has also supplied its kit to Samsung Display, which is planning to use it for research on RGB OLEDoS.
