Collaborated E Ink with Plastic Logic to make the ePaper, the flexible color-changing electronic paper displays based on the advanced ACeP color electronic paper technology.
And when e-readers were released, such as the Amazon Kindle, the world became interested in e-paper.
And many thought that electronic readers would replace traditional screens to make the technology easier on our eyes, but that hasn’t happened yet.
E Ink is the startup in the business Electronic ink Responsible for the new technology called ACeP, which is a high quality color reflective electronic paper that can reproduce the full colors of every pixel without the use of a color filter matrix.
ACeP technology could help revitalize the alternative display industry, so far ACeP has been used primarily for signage, which does not require panels to be flexible.
The addition of Plastic Logic technology allows for expansion of applications that may require thinner and lighter displays.
ACeP monitors are an extremely low-power option compared to conventional displays, and they can create up to 32,000 colors, giving it a huge advantage over most types of electronic paper, which only appear in black and white.
And it works E Ink now with Plastic Logo to design ePaper displays that can be used in garments, as Designers are looking for new ways to make clothes more environmentally friendly without compromising people’s fashion sense.
The ePaper displays could be the perfect answer, as they allow people to change the look of their clothes, and designers can include such screens in smart clothing and jewelry.
The two companies created an organic glass-free panel that is lighter, thinner and more durable than regular electronic paper displays.
Plastic Logic’s oTFT glass-free thin-film transistor displays are high-resolution, lightweight, and extremely low-power.
It’s also more durable than standard glass-based TFT displays and is thinner and lighter, making it ideal for applications, such as wearables.
The first Legio board from Plastic Logic comes with a 2.1-inch resolution of 240 x 146 pixels with support for six colors, including black and white, and is supported by the Ultrachip UC8156 single-chip controller.
