Sony to tie up with U.S. venture for new display devices.

TOKYO, April 18 Kyodo

Sony Corp. said Wednesday it has agreed with Universal Display Corp. (UDC) of the United States to jointly develop next-generation active matrix organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display devices for use in large area monitor applications.

They aim to develop longer lasting display devices with high efficiency by ''combining UDC's proprietary high efficiency electrophosphorescent materials and Sony's proprietary low temperature polysilicon active matrix OLED technology,'' Sony said in a press release.

In February, Sony developed a 13-inch active matrix OLED display, which is ''a little thicker than a credit card and has the potential to replace the bulky television tube.''

The company said it expects the display device to be mass-produced in 2003.
