World leaders in flexible electronics
With around 800 patents and more than 1000 engineering years in the development of organic materials and manufacturing processes, FlexEnable is the worldwide leader in organic electronics.
FlexEnable was spun-out of Cambridge University with a focus on using organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) to replace glass in large-area electronics with organic optoelectronic modules which are flexible, ultra-thin, ultra-light and unbreakable. Today the company has around 800 patent applications globally for OTFT materials, processes and architectures (including 103 patent applications that originated from the University of Cambridge).
Many of the advantages of FlexEnable’s award-winning OTFT technology derive from its uniquely low temperature manufacturing process, bringing significant process simplicity and cost advantages compared to other approaches. This is one reason why FlexEnable is the only company to have industrialised OTFT with high yield and reliability. FlexEnable has continued to improve the OTFT platform to where it is now three times more powerful than the most common glass/amorphous silicon TFT technology, while bringing all of the benefits of removing glass.
FlexEnable also owns the best-in-class, highest-performance OTFT materials - FlexiOM™ - making us the only company to offer both materials, which are better than amorphous silicon, and industrially-proven enabling manufacturing processes.
FlexEnable is bringing organic electronics technology to market in a fabless business model. Our processes and solutions have been developed to be run on existing flat panel display lines, leveraging existing assets and supply chain.
FlexEnable supplies FlexiOM™ materials and transfers and licenses its unique technology platform to display manufacturers. We also work directly with OEM and Tier 1 companies on developing next generation products, from design to prototyping and product qualification all the way to volume production.
