Life in the Fast Lane: Universal Display Corp.

If one Princeton technology company — — is

helping wireless

devices deliver advertisements, another is totally revolutionizing

the wireless device itself. Last week at a meeting in London,


Display Corporation announced new developments in its flat panel


with Organic Light Emitting Device (OED) technology.

The company, which was incubated at Princeton University and also

has research from the University of Southern California, develops

and makes flat panel displays using the technique of organic


diodes (OLEDs).

According to Michael S. Weaver, UDC’s senior scientist, UDC can mass

produce high-resolution, full-color display panels that use less


Soon OLEDs could replace cathode ray tubes and liquid crystal displays

in the $40 billion annual electronic display market (U.S. 1, February

25, 1998).

UDC can put these display panels on flexible, differently shaped


at a relatively inexpensive cost. "OLEDs are beginning to enter

the market place as a competitive display technology," says


They will have bright colors, wide viewing angle, and can deliver

full motion video.

On November 1 UDC gave stock to PPG Industries in exchange for PPG’s

agreement to develop and produce proprietary chemicals that OLED


need. Last month, also in exchange for stock, UDC bought the rights

to the OLED patent portfolio of Motorola and now has the exclusive

license to 103 US patents associated with OLED technology, plus it

has 50 patents pending in the United States and others world wide.

UDL trades as PANL on the Nasdaq National Market. It has 11,000 square
