Four lightweight ‘electronic paper’ (e-Paper) displays have been developed that use E Ink imaging film to deliver ultra-low-power consumption panels in a variety of sizes from 1.44in to 3in. These electrophoretic displays are bistable and therefore require no power to maintain an image on the screen.

As E-link technology reflects light rather than emitting its own light, this makes the display easier to read in high ambient light conditions, especially in direct sunlight. The company’s 1.44in, 2in and 2.7in ultra-low power ­consumption panels require a simple coin battery or solar power device to operate, and ­feature sunlight readable displays with wide viewing angle and 200×96 (111dpi) image resolution – 264×176 (117dpi) for the 2.7in panel. By combining the high resolution of a TFT backplane with the technology, these panels enable any image to be displayed with excellent resolution and contrast via a thin, lightweight format, for a variety of applications.
