LTPS can be used as substrates for AM-OLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode) panels, and with the acquisition of AFPD, AUO aims to expand its AM-OLED panel production capacity. It is reported that AUO will manufacture AM-OLED panels at its 3.5G plant, and mass production and shipment are slated for the end of this year.
