Pioneer Obtains OLED Technology License from Universal Display
Sep 30, 2011 Universal Display Corporation announced that the company has entered into an OLED technology license agreement with Pioneer Corporation. Under the arrangement, Pioneer will be licensed to access and use Universal Display's proprietary UniversalPHOLED phosphorescent and other OLED technologies and materials for the manufacture and sale of OLED lighting products.
In 2003, Pioneer introduced the first OLED display product to use Universal Display's phosphorescent OLED technology and materials. Based on this product launch, the companies, along with Nippon Steel Chemical Company (NSCC) and Tohoku Pioneer Corporation, were awarded the grand prize of the 10th annual Advanced Display of the Year (ADY) award, in the Display Materials and Components category, at the 2005 FINETECH JAPAN conference. Since then, Pioneer has developed and marketed a variety of passive-matrix OLED products for automotive, consumer electronics and other applications. Based on a strong foundation, Pioneer is now well prepared to take the next step into OLED lighting using Universal Display's proprietary UniversalPHOLED technology and materials.
The new agreement grants Pioneer license rights under various patents and associated know-how owned or controlled by Universal Display for Pioneer to manufacture and sell OLED products for lighting applications. Pioneer will pay running royalties on its sales of these licensed products under the agreement. The term of the agreement continues until Pioneer sells a specified amount of licensed products. Universal Display separately agreed to sell to Pioneer certain phosphorescent OLED materials for use in manufacturing licensed OLED lighting products.
