AM OLED continues to show promise for being the next generation display technology capable of replacing AM LCD in several of its present applications, including displays for aerospace applications. Commercial products such as DSCs (digital still cameras) and PDAs (personal digital assistants) using AM OLED displays have already been introduced. Technology demonstrators as large as 40-in diagonal AM OLED displays have been shown. We evaluated the performance of present COTS AM OLEDs with respect to avionics display requirements. In this paper we will review the current status of AM OLED technology by considering the performance capabilities of COTS and technology demonstration displays, and recent OLED device research results and make an assessment of AM OLED technology towards meeting the performance requirements of avionics displays. The technology gaps for achieving the desired performance for avionics display applications are identified.
