Cambridge Display Technology (CDT) is the leading developer of technologies based on polymer light emitting diodes (PLEDs).
PLEDs are the fast growing new generation of display technology and are set to replace liquid crystal displays (LCDs) and cathode ray tubes (CRTs) in many existing applications, as well as opening up exciting possibilities for new product forms such as flexible or even wearable displays.
This technology has a relatively short history, yet has already begun to be commercialised and is available to device developers, manufacturers and product designers, enabling them to enhance the operation of today's consumer products, and giving exciting new levels of performance and manufacturability.
CDT is based in Cambridge, UK, with a state of the art Technology Development Centre a few miles away at Godmanchester. Most of our highly qualified team works at these centres, but CDT also has business offices in Asia and the USA.
We leverage our technology leadership through licenses and technology transfer, forming partnerships with the leading players in the display and related fields. We have developed manufacturing skills which not only prove the practicality of our new materials but - more importantly - support our partners in evaluating and scaling up their production line investments.
How CDT can help you
Wherever you are in the display market supply chain, CDT can support you. We provide a unique, full spectrum PLED solution, including:
For our industry-leading customers we offer tailored research and development solutions which address specific product and market needs and keep them at the forefront of the industry. We ensure they have access to state-of-the-art materials and device structures, and the licensing rights to the best in PLED technology.
Other customers benefit from more complete technology transfer arrangements, taking advantage of CDT's manufacturing expertise and enabling them to scale-up their production operations quickly. We can assist them in making the case for investment, providing proof-of-principle demonstrators and reducing the perceived risk of investment. Ink jet printing equipment and processes, test equipment and training are important parts of the CDT portfolio of services in assuring successful PLED device scale-up.
Another group of customers will want a complete manufacturing solution, from materials through process knowledge to manufacturing facilities.
And if your business is not displays - lighting perhaps, or photovoltaic applications - we can still help you, with the latest R&D facilities and cutting edge thinking to help component suppliers, product designers and futurologists to anticipate and realise their dreams.
