EU to Launch Imola Project of €5.1 Million on OLED Intelligent Lighting
Sep 23, 2011
With the emergence of intelligent LED lighting systems in the industry, the new €5.1 million Imola Project will focus on extending the presence of these intelligent lighting systems into the OLED sphere. The three-year project starting next month is meant to investigate a lighting array of OLEDs, with the central system with built-in control and sensors. Partners involved in the project include Philips (Germany), NXP Semiconductors (Netherlands and Belgium), Henkel Electronic Materials (Belgium), and Hanita Coatings (Israel).
The project entails creating a module, on which different OLEDs will be attached and connected to a monitoring system. The front side will consist of attached OLED tiles that are also connected to a backplane foil. Eventually, the glass and foil OLED tiles will be replaced with those already fabricated on a roll, laminated, that will be connected to the backplane.
The driver electronics involved in the intelligent lighting system will be incorporated into this backplane, controlling brightness of the OLEDs. Meanwhile, a smart power chip will act as a voltage converter, also allowing for CMOS circuitry, which will improve the system performance.
