The companies have already built a prototype 9.7” color ePaper display with front light, winning the People’s Choice Award, during last SID Display Week exhibition in San Jose, California.
The prototype combines CLEARink’s reflective, low power, color and video capable ePaper with FLEx’ thin flexible integrated light guide to yield a very low power display that is sunlight and night time readable, using only two LEDs.
“We are delighted to collaborate with CLEARink to bring the next generation ePaper display to market.” said Mike Casper, CEO of FLEx Lighting. “Our front light technology enables low power, thin profile, light and uniform brightness for reflective displays in all ambient conditions.”
According to CLEARink Displays’ CEO Frank Christiaens, there is a $50b+ market in 2023 looking for a color, video, low power ePaper display viewable in all ambient conditions, which the companies aim to address with the new solution.
