Founded in 2015, Simbeyond is a spin-off launched by the Technical University of Eindhoven (TU/e) to provide the market with simulation software that is able to model opto-electronic processes in organic-electronic devices.
State-of-the-art software demonstrated internationally
Simbeyond’s simulation-tool Bumblebee is designed to predict the performance of OLED stacks on, for example, efficiency, color stability, and lifespan. The simulation technique Kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) is implemented in order to simulate a process multiple times with each time different starting conditions. By implementing this simulation software, the development of OLED devices can by significantly shortened and less funds need to be spent on experiments and labor.
Demonstration project China funded via DHI grant programme
China aims to become a leader in the development of display technology, including OLED technology. Simbeyond sees potential in this. However, introducing a new product onto the Chinese market can be quite challenging as a European company. Product demonstrations off site are hindered by technical limitations as well as language and cultural differences.
In an attempt to introduce the Chinese market to Bumblebee, Simbeyond collaborated with the South China University of Technology (SCUT) in order to set up a demonstration project. Through funding by the DHI grant programme, Simbeyond aims to demonstrate Bumblebee to a large group of potential clients in China and show the software’s added value in solving common OLED problems.
Successful collaboration with Hezelburcht
There are many grant possibilities for an innovative scale-up such as Simbeyond. After numerous previous successful technological grant projects Hezelburcht now also successfully supported Simbeyond in starting-up their demonstration project in China by means of the DHI programme.
