    World’s First Tablet-Size Flexible Electronic Paper Display
    TOKYO,
    Oct. 05 — E Ink Corporation in USA, the leading supplier of electronic
    paper display technology, today announced that LG.Philips LCD (NYSE:
    LPL, KRX: 034220), one of the world’s leading innovators of thin-film
    transistor liquid crystal (TFT-LCD) technology, and E Ink have built a
    10.1″ flexible electronic paper display. The display will be shown at
    the FPD International trade show in Japan, attended by over 60,000
    visitors each year.
    Less than 300 microns thick, the paper-white
    display is as thin and flexible as construction paper. With a 10.1″
    diagonal, the prototype achieves SVGA (600×800) resolution at 100
    pixels per inch and has a 10:1 contrast ratio with 4 levels of
    grayscale.
    E Ink(R) Imaging Film is a novel display material that
    looks like printed ink on paper and has been designed for use in
    paper-like electronic displays. Like paper, the material can be flexed
    and rolled. As an additional benefit, the E Ink Imaging Film uses 100
    times less energy than a liquid crystal display because it can hold an
    image without power and without a backlight.
    LG.Philips LCD and E
    Ink selected a steel foil material that could be supplied by Sumitomo
    Corporation in high volume and which was developed by Nippon Steel
    Corporation (5401.JP), the leading steel company in Japan. The flexible
    foil is a super-thin, extremely flat, high-performance steel that can
    easily withstand the high temperatures of a TFT production process.
    LG.Philips
    LCD combined both materials to manufacture the display panel at an
    existing pilot TFT line in Korea. LG.Philips and E Ink jointly designed
    the display electronics and produced the final prototype to achieve the
    world’s largest high-resolution flexible electronic paper display.
    “We
    all need flexible displays,” said Russ Wilcox, CEO of E Ink. “They are
    80% thinner and lighter than glass displays, and they do not break like
    glass displays. You can roll them up and put them in your pocket. You
    can curve them around the outside of a cellphone. Or you can throw them
    in your briefcase like a newspaper. As Galileo famously told us, the
    world is not flat.”
    About E Ink
    E Ink Corporation is the leading
    developer and supplier of electronic paper display (EPD) technologies.
    The company’s display technology is currently sold in Japan as a
    component in the LIBRIe electronic book by SONY Corporation. Future
    technology developments will enable many new applications through
    ultra-thin, lightweight, rugged, flexible, full color displays. E Ink
    is a private corporation that includes among its investors Toppan
    Printing Company, Royal Philips Electronics, Intel Capital, The Hearst
    Corporation, Air Products and Chemicals, Inc., Universal-Vivendi,
    Gannett Co., Inc., and Motorola, Inc. E Ink recently announced customer
    relationships with Vossloh Information Technologies, Neolux Inc.
