As E-link technology reflects light rather than emitting its own light, this makes the display easier to read in high ambient light conditions, especially in direct sunlight.
The company’s 1.44in, 2in and 2.7in ultra-low power consumption panels require a simple coin battery or solar power device to operate, and feature sunlight readable displays with wide viewing angle and 200x96 (111dpi) image resolution - 264x176 (117dpi) for the 2.7in panel.
By combining the high resolution of a TFT backplane with proven E Ink technology, these panels enable any image to be displayed with excellent resolution and contrast via a thin, lightweight format that can be used in a variety of applications. These include POS electronic price tagging, logistic container ID, medical devices (including prescription drug dispensers) and smart labels.
In addition, GPEG is also offering a 3in QVGA display panel that offers a resolution of 320x240 (133dpi). The panel is appropriate for many graphical and data-intensive applications such as industrial equipment displays and logistics identification tags, and includes a reference design with the Epson ISIS controller for quicker solutions development.
For device integrators, the 1.44in, 2in and 2.7in models provide SPI (40-pin) interfaces, while the 3in panel is equipped with a TTL (37-pin) interface. These panels are capable of operating over the temperature range 0-50C and may be stored at temperatures between –20 and +60C.
