E-Paper displays

Low power consumption, extreme viewing angles and excellent readability even in bright environments: E-Paper displays offer many advantages that make them ideal for applications where conventional LCDs are not suitable and where power supply and space are limited.

E-Paper displays use the principle of electrophoresis. Here, microcapsules are used that are filled with a transparent, viscous polymer. This polymer contains white (positively charged) and black (negatively charged) particles that can be moved to the top depending on the polarity of the voltage at the electrodes. The microcapsules have an average diameter of just about 40 µm. By temporarily applying an electrical voltage once, the alignment of the microcapsules can be enabled and content can be displayed. The orientation of the capsules - and thus the respective content - remains constant for years or until a voltage is applied again. Like real paper, E-Paper displays reflect light, which means they are entirely passive, reflective displays.
