14 Feb 2011 | Rasmus Larsen |

OLED is considered the next big thing in display technology and rumors about Apple products with OLED screens have been around for some years now. Apple has now filed three OLED patents for multi touch OLED panels<br /><br /><h3>Apple and OLED</h3>Let us take a quick look at Apple’s three new OLED patents. Apple uses an iPad device for the patent description but these patents could basically apply to all of Apple’s products.<br /><br />The first one is about driving an OLED panel via a multi touch sensor technology. See the illustration below.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/appleoledpatent-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/appleoledpatent-1.jpg" alt="Apple OLED patent" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Apple OLED patent</i></p> <br />The second one describes how Apple plans to guide signal routing for an OLED panel with an integrated multi touch sensor layer.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/appleoledpatent-2l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/appleoledpatent-2.jpg" alt="Apple OLED patent" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Apple OLED patent</i></p> <br />The third patent relates to how the touch sensor configuration is integrated onto an OLED display.<br /><br /><h3>OLED in Apple products</h3>Apple continues to show interest in the OLED technology for popular devices such as iPhone, iPod and iPad. All of these products still use LCD panels.<br /><br />The main problem with OLED at the moment is the limited production capacity. Both Samsung and LG are currently ramping up OLED production capacity for small size OLED screens but the factories aren’t ready yet.<br /><br />At the moment nothing is certain but if the plans materialize we will be thrilled. OLED is truly the next-gen display technology. We will keep you updated with more information as soon as possible.<br /><br />Learn more about OLED on our <a href=/oled.php target=_blank><b>OLED coverage page here</b></a>.<br /><br /><i>Source: <a href=http://www.patentlyapple.com target=_blank>Patentlyapple.com</a></i>
