About ISO9001
ISO 9001 is one of the standards within the range of ISO 9000 standards. ISO 9001 is defined as the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Organizations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. It is the most popular standard in the ISO 9000 series and the only standard in the series to which ISO 9001 was first published in 1987 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), an international agency composed of the national standards bodies of more than 190 countries.

Wisechip launches the world’s first Hyperfluorescence OLED display- a 2.7-inch yellow PMOLED

Fukuoka, Japan, October 17, 2019 – Kyulux Inc., a world leader in the development of the next generation of organic light emitting diode (OLED) HyperfluorescenceTM/TADF technology, announced that WiseChip launches world’s first commercial HyperfluorescenceTM OLED display – based on
materials by Kyulux.

WiseChip Semiconductor, Taiwan-based PMOLED display solutions provider, launched a novel HyperfluorescenceTM OLED product – a 2.7″ yellow PMOLED display that uses 4th generation HyperfluorescenceTM OLED light emission technology by Kyulux. This will be the first product using the new generation of organic compounds in a commercial display.

Kyulux, supplier of HyperfluorescenceTM/TADF materials, has been collaborating with WiseChip since 2016. Kyulux's fourth-generation HyperfluorescenceTM OLED light-emitting technology is attracting attention as the ultimate light-emitting technology that realizes long-lifetime, high-color purity and high-efficiency with excellent cost performance.

By adopting this HyperfluorescenceTM technology, WiseChip managed to create an OLED display with a simple yet highly promising structure. For instance, the 2.7-inch, 128×64 pixel array, yellow type HyperfluorescenceTM OLED can reach up to 220 nits – 2.5 times brighter than using general fluorescence materials. Tuning material parameters can lead to even higher performances. Moreover, using this material also improved the lifetime of the
product to more than 50,000 hours.

WiseChip is already looking into mass production of these HyperfluorescenceTM OLED displays.

About Kyulux
Kyulux is a leader in developing and delivering the next generation of organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology, TADF. Kyulux develops and sells TADF and HyperfluorescenceTM based OLED materials and solutions to manufacturers in the display and lighting industries.
