OLED Lifetime System

Order Code: E642


(excluding Taxes)



Combining the precision of the XtralienTM X100 with the versatility of an Ossila Test Board provides a robust and user-friendly OLED lifetime testing system. The lifetime system is designed to provide a long-term and low-cost solution to lifetime testing.

Compatibility with both the 8-pixel and 6-pixel Ossila substrate systems enables the user to easily fabricate and test OLED devices.

System Overview

The main components of the OLED lifetime system are the XtralienTM X100 Source Measure Unit, an Ossila test board (either manual or automatic smart board) and a specially designed photodiode lid. The smart board can cycle through pixels without user intervention. The components are attached to an optical breadboard in a vertical stack, thus reducing system footprint. A small form factor allows placement of the lifetime tester in previously inconvenient places.

OLED Lifetime System Software + User Guide


Devices are secured within the test board beneath a photodiode lid. The system takes advantage of the XtralienTM X100’s two onboard source measure units (SMU) to characterise the device. One SMU performs JV operations via the test board, while the other SMU measures photodiode current. The test board and photodiode are connected to the X100 SMUs via BNC cables.

An intuitive and highly customisable OLED Lifetime software suite performs JV, JVL and lifetime measurements.

The user can perform an initial JV/JVL sweep to determine the operating current of the LED and photodiode. This data is then used to select an LED or photodiode current at which to start the lifetime measurements. Voltage is automatically adjusted to keep the LED current constant over the desired measurement time.

Both the JVL and lifetime data can be output to a .csv file for easy documentation.
