Electronic paper could offer a flat and thin alternative to existing key fob tokens for data security. Michelle DuBose Jensen. Yet,We need confirmatory studies to conclude which technology would be the next generation contender for E-Paper Displays. Volume 3, Issue 4, Pages E-ink technology tries to mimic the original paper as it leverages ambient light. E-Paper Abstract Electronic paper E-paper is a portable.
Electrowetting is a microfluidic phenomenon which modifies the surface tension of liquids on a solid surface with voltage. By applying a voltage, the wetting properties of a hydrophobic surface can be modified and the surface becomes increasingly hydrophilic wettable as shown in the fig.
This oil and water combination also lets us to switch each pixel between a colored and a white blank state very quickly. Therefore, the switching speed is so fast to play video very well. This is a huge advantage over Electrophoretic displays, which switches so slowly.
Although, Electrowetting displays has good refresh rate and suitable for video applications, still it requires high driving voltage. To cite, it gives better image memory retention even when power is off, with ultra-low power consumption. Manufacturing thin and lightweight CH-LCD is easy to display different colors without any color filters.
Comparatively, It has good refresh speed.
Finally, it is flexible and bendable which makes them well-suited for all hand-held applications like E-books and for advertisement Billboards. Electrowetting Principle advertisements inside a train, and the advertisements can be changed depending on the next station stop. Alternatively, electronic paper can be used to display downloaded information from the internet inside the train.
At bus stops, instead of just displaying fixed bus schedules, it can also display information on buses that are behind schedule because of heavy traffic. Direct, Matrix, and Raster. In a Matrix addressing display, the control signals are applied to rows and columns of the display. For active matrix addressing, a capacitor, transistor circuits is used to maintain the state of the cell whereas Passive matrix addresses without using transistor circuits.
A Case Study 3. Each pixel is attached to a switch- device, which actively maintains the pixel state while other pixels are being addressed. There is an advantage in this driving scheme as it prevents crosstalk from inadvertently changing the state of an unaddressed pixel. Passive matrix addressing is extensively used for Cholestric- Liquid crystal displays as they do not need switching component of an active matrix display due to their bistable characteristics.
Therefore, the addressing of bistable displays is done with PM schemes. Physical and Optical characteristics of CH-LCD help us to understand working phenomenon of a cholestric cell as it is the workhorse for proposing new driving schemes. Recent dis- covery reveals two more states namely: Homeotropic state and transient pla- nar state. In homeotropic state, the applied voltage makes the helical structure to be broken which enables them to align parallel to the applied electric field and perpendicular to incident light where as Transient planar state is based on removal of voltage.
If the applied voltage is removed quickly it jumps to the stable Planar state. In the other way, if the voltage is removed slowly the Homeotropic states jumps to transient planar state and then to Focal conic state. Transient planar is a state whose helical structure axes perpendicular to the incident light.
Comparatively, We claimed that there is an advantage in using CH-LCD such as High contrast ratio, Low power consumption and possibility for different colors without color filters. For example, having reflective planar and scatter focal conic states with black back plane helps to absorb light which leads to High contrast ratio.
Static Driving Scheme utilizes only stable states without meta-stable states. For voltage below 20 V, the reflection is not affected pulse. When voltage is between 20 and 34 V, the reflection decreases.
Reflection of the cell reaches its original value for voltage above 46 V. In this case the reflection of the cell is unchanged below 44 Voltage. Then the cell is switched into the reflecting state for a pulse above 50 V.
In this conventional scheme every row is driven independent of other rows. As shown in Fig. The column voltage is 15 V for obtaining the planar state and 0 V for the focal conic state. The row and column voltages are AC square pulse and with opposite phases. Hence, for pixels in selected row the voltage is either 50 V for reflecting state Planar or 35 V for scattering state Focal Conic and for unselected row voltage is either 0 or 15 V.
Therefore once a pixel of a multiplexed display is addressed into the reflecting or scattering state, it will remain in that state. Applications developed with Static driving scheme is simple without any crosstalk.
However, Static driving scheme requires 50ms to refresh from one row to another this makes them very slow for high video rate. Dynamic Driving Scheme As conventional driving scheme took 50ms milli seconds , it makes static driving scheme unpractical.
Conventional displays have a number of disadvantages in this application. They may be too expensive, too power consuming, or too hard to see when affixed to a shelf. On the other hand, e- paper can produce small, battery-operated, flexible displays. Color is not a requirement; monochrome displays would be quite capable of displaying most pricing or product information. When improved color is developed, it would then increase the advertising capabilities of such displays. Readable E-Paper are easily readable even in direct sunlight because E-Paper displays reflect light like ordinary paper.
An E-paper display has the appearance of ordinary ink on paper, for it reflects light like ordinary paper. E-paper vs. Rugged E-Paper displays are rugged Compared to LCD displays, the E-paper displays have obvious advantage in thickness and weight, and due to the polymer film based structure, it's flexible in shape and size.
What's more, E-paper is durable and reliable. The flexibility feature of E-paper enables its various applications, even for some extreme requirements that other types of display technology cannot meet. Based on the ultra-thin and flexible feature, the E-paper can be used on the smart card as a display showing balance and transaction record information.
Green If we could replace all paper newspapers with E-Newspapers tomorrow, it would save 95 million trees which could remove 98 million tons of greenhouse gas each year.
The E-paper display is energy efficient due to two advantages it has. Frstly, it doesn't use a back light which consume most power, but rather, it mimics the picture by reflecting ambient light. Secondly, it's bi-stable, which means no power is needed to hold a static picture. This makes the E-paper display consume much less power than conventional displays, such as LCD displays. We know that less power consumption means longer lasting battery life. Therefore, E-paper displays are highly suitable for the products which are limited to the size or require extreme battery condition.
The bistable E-paper display Very low refresh rate: A notable disadvantage of electrophoretic display and electronic ink display is that it has very low refresh rate when compared to LCD IPS technology and AMOLED display technology this is also true for other electronic paper display technologies.
A low refresh rate is disadvantageous because it prevents manufacturers for using this display technology in electronic devices that have high degree of user interactivity. Note that user interactivity is high in devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. Ghosting effect: Electrophoretic display and electronic ink display are prone to ghosting effect. A shadow of an image may be visible after refreshing parts of the screen. This ghosting effect is due to the low refresh rate and the fact that the display technology works by moving charged pigment particles.
Some particles end up stuck in the visible surface of a microcapsule.
High market competition: Another disadvantage of electrophoretic display and electronic ink display is that it competes with existing display technologies that have become industry standards. Note that IPS displays and AMOLED displays have become very popular in smartphones and tablet computers, as well as in large screens such as televisions and computer monitors. Advancements in IPS and AMOLED display technologies have addressed issues concerning power consumption or energy efficiency, display longevity, and pixel density capacity, among others.
Still needs backlighting: One of the advantages of reflective displays is their reliance on ambient light. This means less power consumption form backlighting. However, this advantage can also be a disadvantage for electrophoretic display and electronic ink display. Devices that use this display technology still need some light source such as backlighting in order to be usable when in the dark. Note that some electronic readers are actually unreadable when in the dark—just like books or newspapers.
Like all technologies, E-paper has its flaws that make it inaccurate to use. Organizations face many disadvantages with e-paper and e-paper technologies. Publishing departments may have a bad time adapting to this new technology because it is still complex to use.
Organizations still have manufacturing costs that were higher than expected, and some companies had trouble programming signs in their stores. Hence, companies are still reluctant to use this technology because it is more complex than paper and it is more expensive to use.
Thus, unless the room is not bright enough, employees in an organization will have a very hard time reading the e-paper. The biggest challenge a company faces with e-paper and its sister technologies is piracy. In the case of flexible displays. E-Paper Several companies are simultaneously developing electronic paper and ink. The method of how the inks are encapsulated and then applied to the substrate is what distinguishes each company from each other.
Electronic ink can be printed on any surface. The ink's flexibility would also make it possible to develop rollable displays for electronic devices. Advantages of electronic paper includes low power usage power is only drawn when the display is updated.
Other technologies being applied to electronic paper include modifications of liquid crystal displays. The ideal electronic paper product is a digital book that can typeset itself and could be read as if it were made of regular paper. Another possible use is in the distribution of an electronic version of a daily paper. E-Paper 1 Education: E-Paper Commercial applications in brief: Sony announced the PRS In November On October 2. Amazon began producing and marketing the Amazon kindle an e-book with an e-paper display.
In February E-Paper support for the popular mobipocket PRC format was added. Two different processing platforms are used to deliver readable information of the daily.
With the introduction of the competing cybook. Amazon released the kindle2 and in May the larger kindle dx was announced. It differs from other big name readers in that it has a replaceable battery and a separate touch-screen below the main reading screen.
One interesting point of the offer is the choice of a light reading device or the irex iLaid. This was the first recorded application of electronic ink to newspaper publishing. Two offers are available. Such a device M.
A well-designed digital photo frame using an electronic ink display could. A digital photo frame using e-paper technology would address all of these shortcomings.
Existing digital photo frames require a constant power supply and have a limited viewing angle and physical thickness that is inferior to a conventionalphotograph. Examples include web pages such as news sites or status pages such as stocks or other information.
The current days weather forecast would be a good example for installation in a domestic location such as near the front door in a hall way. Such a product will have a low physical and energy footprint compared to older technology. Unlike digital photo frames. E-Paper could also be connected wirelessly allowing remote or automatic updates without human intervention.
Electronic paper could offer a flat and thin alternative to existing key fob tokens for data security. The cards used display technology from www. At present Q4 no such product is available on the market despite the technology already existing to manufacture it.
This prevents producers from implementing sophisticated interactive applications using fast moving menus. Those imprints are known as "ghost images". This effect is reminiscent of screen burn in but. Turning every pixel white. This is why several devices with this technology "flash" the entire screen white and black when loading a new image.
An e-ink screen showing the "ghost" of a previous image An example of this limitation is that a document cannot be smoothly zoomed without either extreme blurring during the transition or a very slow zoom Another limitation is that an imprint of an image may be visible after refreshing parts of the screen.
