E Ink: Segmented EPDs


E Ink Segmented displays are ultra-low power, thin, and rugged. E Ink's unique reflective display technology is sunlight readable and can display an image with no power. This enables engineers and designers to add displays to products where power and space limitations have made it impossible to do so before.

Applications for the technology are broad, including a wide variety of consumer electronics, watches, medical devices, industrial gauges, PC accessories, smart cards, electronic shelf labels, and mobile communications.

The disruptive benefits of E Ink Segmented displays include:

  • Ultra Low Power
    E Ink displays are bi-stable, drawing power only when updating the display.
    Consuming approximately 0.5 micro amps per cm2 while switching the display,
    E Ink displays require zero power to display a static image.
  • Thinness
    E Ink Segmented display thickness can be between 380 and 560 microns.
  • Rugged
    E Ink Segmented displays are non-glass and shatterproof for added durability.
  • High contrast
    E Ink Segmented displays are daylight readable with a 180 degree viewing angle.
  • Design
    E Ink Segmented displays can be manufactured in any 2D shape such a circle, triangle or
    abstract shape, enhancing industrial designs. In addition, E Ink’s unique capabilities allow for
    the foreground and background to be reversed from black on white or white on black.
