Pervasive Display announced new e-paper (electronic paper) displays with internal timing controllers (iTC) to remove dependence on external microcontrollers for timing control. This simplifies the design of displays because the driving waveform is embedded in the display’s chip-on-glass driver IC. The new e-paper displays are ideal for electronic shelf labels and other commercial and industrial applications.
The new e-paper displays are claimed to minimise external component count, reduce costs, and one time programming (OTP) of the display driver ensures best optical performance and reliability, according to the firm.
E-paper displays require energy only when the display changes. They require no energy to display information – enabling exceptionally long battery life, even from tiny coin cells. This makes them the lowest power display technology available.
Custom sizes, waveforms and interconnect configurations are also offered. A patented panel breakage detection mechanism generates an alert signal if panels are damaged to minimize any loss of displayed information.
The new e-paper displays are available in standard 2.15 inch, 2.87 inch and 4.2 inch versions. For more details, view the full Press release.
