E Ink looking at applications beyond eReaders

Posted on Thursday, August 19 2010 @ 03:25:23 CEST by

DigiTimes writes E Ink is planning to tap new markets for its EPD (electrophoretic display) screens. Currently, the e-paper screens are only used by eBook readers, but in the future the company hopes to get into keyboards, tags, watches and advertising displays.
Taiwan-based EPD (electrophoretic display) maker E Ink Holdings (EIH), in view of Samsung Electronics' adoption of EPD for use as keypads of handsets, will tap markets for EPD applications other than e-book readers, including keyboards, tags, watches and advertising display, according to the company.

Scott Liu, chairman of EIH, noted that EPD can be adopted for handset keypads and notebook keyboards. The bi-stability characteristic of electrophoretic enables low power consumption, and keyboards made using EPD are like ones with printed signs on them, but these signs can be changed at any time according to different needs, he said.
