Glass-free flexible plastic e-paper displays

Plastic Logic flexible displays are now available from Review Display Systems. Plastic Logic manufactures flexible, glass-free electrophoretic active matrix displays. These displays are shatterproof, bendable and daylight-readable. They are also ultra-thin, lightweight and extremely robust and yet have low battery consumption, no continuous refresh cycles are necessary.

These displays are organic thin-film (OTFT) active matrix which has been combined with bi-stable electrophoretic technology. Electrophoretic technology is commonly known as e-paper and unlike backlit flat panel displays where a constant power supply is required to keep an image, once an image is set no power is required to keep the image. The displays have an ultra-wide viewing angle and are available in monochrome with up to 16 levels of gray. Which all adds up to thin, lightweight customisable designs making it ideal for wearables, signage, mobile electronics devices and smart cards. Standard sizes are available from 1.1” to 10.7” (1280×960).
