It has four timing sequences and is designed for multi-functional use across four different applications.

The "Tipping Point"

Feb 13, 2014 | 2014 has only just began and already discussions abound on how a "tipping point" has been reached in the field of printed and flexible electronics, a statement mostly backed by the significant interest and accompanying investment by LG and Samsung into the commercialisation of flexible displays. Fully flexible displays are still a few years away, but recently demonstrated devices on plastic substrates (but still encapsulated in rigid glass) by both Korean giants are the precursors of conformable ultra-thin OLEDs, which will be characterised by true flexibility and unsurpassed robustness.
