About E-Paper and E-ink displays

E-Paper, electronic ink or E-ink technology is now mature enough to be a viable alternative in the right industrial application where static images are dominating usage.

We can describe the pros and limitations for you with this technology vs. LCD or OLED Technology and make it visible to you!

Suitable applications


E-Paper, short for electronic paper, is a display technology designed to imitate the appearance of traditional ink on paper. E-Paper offers a paper-like reading experience with low power consumption and high readability in various ambient light conditions. This makes E-Paper well-suited for applications such as e-readers, digital signage, and smart labels.

Monochrome or RGB colour?


E-Paper invented as monochrome display technology back in 1996 at MIT Massachusetts, the technology has evolved over the years, leading to the development of RGB colour e-paper displays. These displays use different colour pigments in addition to the black and white particles, allowing for the representation of a limited range of RGB colours.

The limitations of e-paper?

Keep in mind, Monochrome e-paper exhibits slow refresh rates, a grey-to-grey state, up to 0.5 seconds compared to LCD and OLEDs milliseconds. Moreover, colour e-paper exhibits even slower refresh rates grey-to-grey state, 1.5-2 seconds, depending on the operation mode.


Overall, this “intelligent paper” provides a unique combination of paper-like reading experience, low power consumption, low operation temp due to low power consumption and high readability in various lighting conditions. E-Paper has found its way to the e-reader market, offering users a more comfortable and efficient way to consume digital content and digital signage with E-Paper is up next!
