Youngwoo DSP said on Tuesday that it has signed a contract with Samsung Display for inspection equipment used in OLED panel production.
The company didn’t reveal the size of the deal but said the kits will be used to check for defects in OLED cells, modules and panels in a production line located in South Korea.
The equipment uses a vision algorithm and AI to automate the process, Yongwoo DSP said.
The equipment maker added that it expects demand for such kits to increase going forward as more display panel makers shift focus to OLED.
Youngwoo DSP added that it also plans to develop equipment for other merging technologies such as MicroOLED and quantum dot nanorod LED.
Last week, Samsung Display said it was developing MicroOLED technology to meet the expected demand increase from virtual and augmented reality.
