USDC hands out contracts

October 22, 2003 – The US Display Consortium has awarded a pair of contracts to develop new technologies used in displays.

Cabot Superior Micropowders, a division of Cabot Corp., San Jose, CA, will use a $1.25 million project award to develop direct-write patterning technologies using metallic inks for printing high-conductivity, 75-100-micron lines on low-temperature substrates, a process that normally requires lithographic and vacuum deposition techniques.

Meanwhile, General Atomics Corp., San Diego, CA, will work with the USDC in a $439,000 project to develop technologies for measuring permeation rates of water vapor through plastic substrates, a prerequisite to developing displays using flexible plastic substrates.
