Orthogonal’s technology centers on a proprietary system of photoresist materials, a key component of today’s display and touchscreen manufacturing processes. Using Orthogonal’s proprietary material system is the only method to allow today’s LCD screen manufacturing factories to produce this new generation of flexible electronics.
Orthogonal’s customers and partners have patterned our resist using a wide range of standard equipment including slot die coaters, steppers, contact aligners, etc.
o Organic Electronic Materials: Orthogonal’s photolithography processes extend to vacuum or solution deposited small molecules and polymers. This gives our customers the utmost flexibility in manufacturing for current and newly developed organic materials. Having this flexibility gives manufacturers an infrastructure, which allows the ability to choose the absolute best material for their application. i.e. Current small molecule materials might be surpassed in performance by solution processable materials which if using other manufacturing techniques would require purchasing different patterning equipment. Customers using Orthogonal’s resists and processes would not need to make such dramatic changes.
o Inorganic Electronic Materials: Orthogonal resists are not limited to patterning organic materials and can also pattern conventional inorganic materials such as silicon, indium tin oxide, silver, etc. Several applications require patterning metals on top of organic electronic materials primarily for conducting pathways and electrodes.
