E Ink working on electronic paper display module.
Royal Philips Electronics, Sony Corporation and E Ink Corporation E Ink Corporation is a privately held manufacturer of electrophoretic displays (EPDs), a kind of electronic paper. E Ink is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and was founded in 1997 by Joseph Jacobson, a professor in the MIT Media Lab. announced the world's first consumer application of an electronic paper display module in Sony's new e-Book reader, LIBRIe. This first-ever Philips' display utilizes E Ink's electronic ink technology, which offers a paper-like reading experience with contrast that is the same as newsprint.
The Electronic Paper Display is reflective and can be easily read in bright sunlight or dimly lit environments while being able to be seen at virtually any angle. Its black and white ink-on-paper look, combined with a resolution in excess of most portable devices at approximately 170 pixels per inch “Ppi” redirects here. For other uses, see PPI.
Pixels per inch (PPI) or pixel density is a measurement of the resolution of a computer display, related to the size of the display in inches and the total number of pixels in the horizontal and (PPI (1) (Pixels Per Inch) The measurement of the resolution of a monitor or scanner. For example, a monitor that is 16 inches wide and displays 1600 pixels across its width would have a resolution of 100 ppi (1600 divided by 16). ), gives an appearance similar to that of newspaper. Because the display uses power only when an image is changed, a user can read more than 10,000 pages before the four AAA AAA: see American Automobile Association.
(Triple A) A common single-cell battery used in a myriad of electronic devices of all variety. Like its double A (AA) cousin, it provides 1.5 volts of DC power. When used in series, the voltage is multiplied. alkaline batteries need to be replaced.
Sony's e-Book reader LIBRIe, the first device to utilize Philips' display solution for enhanced reading, is similar in size and design to a paperback book. LIBRIe allows users to download published content, such as books or comic strips
The commercialization of this revolutionary display technology is a result of a strategic collaboration started in 2001 among E Ink Corporation, Toppan Printing and Philips together with Sony. E Ink supplies electronic ink to its manufacturing partner Toppan Printing, which in turn processes the ink into a thin film called frontplane laminate laminate,
n a thin slice of porcelain or plastic fabricated in a dental lab, which is cemented to the front of the teeth to cover gaps, whiten stained teeth, or reshape chipped or broken teeth. . Philips integrates E Ink's frontplane laminate with an active matrix backplane An interconnecting device that has sockets for printed circuit boards to plug into.
Passive and Active
Although resistors may be used, a "passive" backplane adds no processing in the circuit. and adds the driving electronics component. Philips works with Sony to co-develop and customize display solutions for innovative mobile devices.
"E Ink is thrilled that our first commercial launch is in product by Sony," said Russell Wilcox, president of E Ink Corporation. "Since the inception of our company, our goal has been to change the way people receive and view information. The strength of our partnerships with Philips and Toppan Printing has helped to make this dream a reality."
