“We recently entered into a patent license agreement with Semiconductor Energy Laboratory, renewing the license to SEL’s patent portfolio on display technology,” a company official said.
Established in 1980, SEL specializes in research and development and is headquartered in Atsugi, Japan. SEL started off by researching and developing solar batteries and branched out to oxide semiconductors in 2008.
SEL has researched and developed transistors and semiconductor devices, materials and devices for OLEDs, LCDs and batteries. LG Display said SEL’s patent portfolio on display technology includes crystalline oxide semiconductor, OLED and LCD technologies.
