The most revolutionary aspect of our display technology
is its true 'rollability'. Many display technologies
now offer flexibility, but only rollable displays have
a bending radius of just one centimeter - which is why
they can virtually 'disappear' into mobile devices.
This factor alone opens up exciting possibilities for
new applications and innovative devices. But there are
many other technical benefits that make rollable displays
an extremely exciting option for mobile devices.
In brief, rollable displays combine active-matrix polymer
electronics (which drive the display) with a reflective
'electronic ink' front plane (the surface the user sees),
which are mounted on an ultra-thin plastic / organic
substrate. As the back plane is just 25 microns thick
and the front plane 75 microns, the total display is
as thick as a sheet of paper.
Importantly, the displays have a high resolution (85
dpi) and the technology used in the front plane ensures
a highly attractive paper-like quality, as well as a
far wider viewing angle than even the best LCD displays.
So reading is easy anywhere and under any light conditions,
even direct sunlight. Rollable displays are ideal for
reading-intensive applications such as e-mail, e-books,
-newspapers and -magazines.
What's more, rollable displays offer all these advantages
without decreasing the battery lifetime of mobile devices.
The display technology that gives these screens their
paper-like appearance is 'bi-stable'. This means they
draw power only when the image changes, so consumption
is extremely low.
Rollable displays in brief:
- Big screens on small devices
- Paper-like readability
- Low power consumption
- High resolution - 85 dpi
- Robust / unbreakable
- Feather weight
- Lifetime of device and display uncoupled
- Enable revolutionary products with proven technology
