Next generation colour electroluminescent displays

Objective

The main objectives are to develop 8.4" to 10.4" VGA resolution colour displays for graphic display applications and 4.8" quarter VGA displays for graphic applications. In order to achieve these objectives the consortium will address:
the development, scale-up and application of improved broad-band white light emitting phosphors as a crucial part of the work.
the development of the new inverted and filtered EL display structure and pilot manufacturing processes
the development of cost effective colour filters and high density interconnection techniques.
the improvement and modification of the EL display driving circuitry, as well as the development of the equipment interfacing circuitry.

The ELDISP project is aiming to develop the next generation of colour electroluminescent (EL) flat panel displays. It will also develop technologies for pilot manufacturing capacity for the production of these new displays. The target is cost effective, high performance EL displays based on the filtered concept with broad-band white light emitting phosphors.
The new generation of colour EL displays will target the existing European and worldwide industrial and transportation market segments, as well as specific new consumer applications.
