Development of a new class of luminescent materials that show high‐speed response, high charge carrier mobility, and high brightness is desirable toward realization of next generation of devices, such as electrically pumped organic lasers, visible light communication instruments, and organic light‐emitting transistors. In this paper, high‐speed organic light‐emitting diodes (OLEDs) and high‐performance hybrid light‐emitting transistors from a new type of solution processable luminescent material, poly[thiophene‐2,5‐diyl‐alt‐5,10‐bis((2‐hexyldecyl)oxy)dithieno[3,2‐c:3′,2′‐h][1,5]naphthyridine‐2,7‐diyl] (PTNT), are reported. The OLEDs based on PTNT polymer exhibit a peak brightness of 8 × 105 cd m−2 and 40 MHz modulation frequency under 10 ns pulse operation. This modulation frequency is significantly higher than that of commercially available LEDs, used for visible light communication. Additionally, solution‐processed area‐emitting hybrid light‐emitting transistors with an external quantum yield of 0.25% at brightness of 250 cd m−2 are demonstrated. Finally, the paper provides device physics and optoelectronic properties of PTNT polymer using ultraviolet photon spectroscopy, inversed photoelectron spectroscopy, and photophysical measurements.
