The Advanced Electronics and Photonics (AEP) core facility provides comprehensive capabilities that bridge the gap between high-risk innovation and product development in an information-secure environment. The AEP core began as the Flexible Electronics and Display Center (FEDC), a public-private consortium intended to bring flexible displays and flexible electronics to production capability. AEP is making available many of the resources utilized by the FEDC in the production of flexible displays and flexible electronics.
With more than 43,500 square feet of class 1,000 and class 10,000 cleanroom space the AEP offers backplane electronics design, fabrication, test and integration capabilities, and operates dedicated pilot line toolsets for technology development. A wide range of processing and metrology equipment commonly found in a thin film transistor FAB is available for use at AEP.
