AP System was selected as the final bidder for BOE’s B12 line ELA (eximer laser annealing) equipment.
ELA is an essential equipment to make low temperature polysilicon (LTPS) TFT for OLED. Eximer laser crystallizes a-Si into polysilicon. It is called LTPS because it makes polysilicon without applying high heat.
In this bid, BOE presented not only equipment quality but also technical competitiveness, easy operation, and maintenance as a supply condition. The AP system met all these requirements and became a final equipment supplier. The official PO has not come out yet.
BOE B12 plans to install eight ELA units. AP System also supplied ELA equipment to BOE’s B7 and B11.
