Foxconn tries to establish the ecosystem in panel industry, and teamed up with Innolux in constructing the sixth-generation low temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) firm, which aimed at putting into mass production in 2016.

According to Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun, Foxconn aims at OLED panel market, and the company's subsidiary, Foxconn Japan RD Co. will cover research sectors in manufacturing, technology, and equipment of OLED panels, its overall goal is to put it into limited production in 2016.

Allegedly, Foxconn Japan RD Co. covers the OLED display at pixel density of 400 ppi, 5-inch product that can be applied in smartphones and wearables. It will also collaborate with Innolux's firms in manufacturing OLED panels.

Relatively, LCD technology engages a backlight, whereas OLED has no backlighting function so that an LCD is not possible to display true black, OLED has a so called off element which produces no light and consumes no power. In general, organic LED technology consumes less power. This is especially useful for devices that are supplied by battery power. As there is no backlighting they can have a thinner form and a more light weighted character.

Furthermore, the manufacturing process of OLED is different to those of LCD technology. OLED can be printed onto almost any substrate with inkjet printer technology. That is why new applications like displays embedded in clothes or roll-up displays are possible. And Foxconn Japan RD Co. called it a “roll-to-roll” technology.
