Display Corporation (Nasdaq: OLED), enabling energy-efficient
displays and lighting with its UniversalPHOLED®
technology and materials, today announced that it has broadened its
Philips relationship to a commercial material supply agreement. With
this, Universal Display will extend its supply agreement from the
evaluation phase, to provide Philips with its proprietary PHOLED™
phosphorescent OLED materials and technology for use in its commercial
OLED lighting products.
“We are excited to extend our working relationship with Philips, the
global leader in lighting,” said Steven V. Abramson, President and Chief
Executive Officer of Universal Display. “This is an important next step
for UDC, from the earlier evaluation agreement we announced in November
2013. It demonstrates the continued acceptance of UDC’s phosphorescent
OLED technology and materials by the emerging OLED lighting industry for
high performance, energy-efficient solid-state lighting.”
Efficacy and color quality are key metrics in lighting. Universal
Display’s proprietary PHOLED technology offers up to four times the
efficiency of conventional OLED technology – a feature that is very
important for energy-efficient solid-state lighting. UDC’s OLED
technology and materials enable OLED lighting to have excellent color
quality, making them very appealing and attractive sources of light.
NanoMarkets forecasts that the addressable market for OLED lighting
panels could reach $1.4 billion in 2019. One of the driving benefits of
this emerging form of solid-state lighting is design flexibility.
NanoMarkets has noted that ultra-thin form factor enables the true
integration of lighting elements into architecture and the creation of
free-form luminous objects. Other advantages of OLED lighting include:
color tunable, easy to control, lower operating temperatures, cool to
touch, low drive voltage, instant “ON,” dimmable without flicker, no
glare, no noise and low UV content.

lighting industries with its UniversalPHOLED, white OLED, and flexible
OLED technologies, please visit the company’s website at http://www.udcoled.com.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands.
Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
