E Ink Technology

E Ink Technology

E Ink's e-paper technology uses normal printing pigments in a liquid that can be moved from the front to the back of microcapsules making up the display as illustrated below.

e-ink technology

The reason E Ink's displays are so low power is twofold:

● They hold their image, referred to as bistable, so once the image is written to the display it remains there until an updated image is written. Added to this is is possible to just update the part of the image that needs changing rather than the whole image. Other display technologies such as LCD and LED typically have the image updated 60 times a second.

● They are reflective so like normal paper they rely on ambient light, this is one of the reasons they are so effective as sunlight readable displays. Other display technologies are emissive, ie light shines from them. LCD typically has an LED backlight and LED, which is often referred to as direct view LED, is in effect a lamp. OLED is like LED, the pixels themselves emit light.

Applications

Applications

The benefit of being low power and sunlight readable makes E Ink displays uniquely suitable for outdoor displays, expecially where there is no power source as they can be powered by solar.

Transport timetables

Smart cities initiatives

These sign type applications can make use of the widely avaialble live data feeds that are then formatted for the display as well as user created text based messaging using templates or free form graphics. Volanti provides demonstration applications together with source code.
