An organic LED sandwiches a simple matrix of small molecule organic film between anode and cathode to achieve faster response, wider viewing angle, and sharper contrast than conventional LED technology.
Organic LEDs are thinner and consume less power than backlighted LCDs, and achieve faster response, a wider viewing angle, and sharper contrast than conventional LEDs.
Compared to LCD displays, organic LEDs have a thinner profile, and require no backlight. Power consumption falls somewhere between a backlit LCD and a reflective LCD.
The technology is targeted at automotive applications with mass production planned for 2003. Expected temperature range for storage is from -40 to 95C, while the expected operating temperature falls between -30 and 85C.

Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
