Demand for OLED is picking up, with Apple's freshly released iPhone 12 family all featuring OLED screens. Now China-based maker CSOT has plans to build a new 8.5g fab in 2021 for making inkjet-printed OLED panels. SK Hynix is expected to get a bigger share of the NAND flash market after acquiring Intel's NAND flash business. But Intel's memory backend partner PTI stands to lose orders. And Intel's data-centirc tech evangelist Abigail Hing Wen tells Digitimes in an exclusive interview how AI is transforming the world.

CSOT to build new 8.5G fab for inkjet-printed OLED panels: China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) plans to start building a new 8.5G fab in Guangzhou in 2021 for production of inkjet-printed OLED panels, with volume production likely to kick off in 2024, according to industry sources.

Memory backend firm PTI to see orders drop from Intel: With Intel agreeing to sell its NAND flash and storage business including a manufacturing plant in China's Dalian to SK Hynix, Taiwan's memory backend specialist Powertech Technology (PTI), now with 10% of its revenues contributed by Intel, will have to adjust and enhance its customer mix to offset upcoming loss of orders from the US chipmaker, according to industry sources.
