Pervasive Displays ramps up three-pigment e-paper

October 12, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Pervasive Displays (PDi) announced the general availability of the first two products in its Spectra family of three-pigment (black, white and red) electronic paper displays (EPDs).

The Spectra EPD is able to quickly draw attention to specific messages on a device or signage and is particularly useful in applications such as electronic shelf labels (ESL), industrial, smart card, signage and identification badges.
The Spectra EPD is an active matrix TFT glass substrate display with a super-wide viewing angle of 180 degrees. Two sizes of Spectra EPD are currently available. Model E2287ES051 is a 2.87” display providing 296x128 pixels at 112 dpi, and the larger model E2417ES053 is a 4.2” display with a 400x300 resolution and a pixel density of 120 dpi. In both displays the pixel arrangement is vertical and the surface of the display features an anti-glare treatment. Accordingly, Spectra EPDs are able to display fine graphics and patterns, maximizing visibility, recognition and impact.
Due to their bistable nature, Spectra EPD panels require very little power to update and use zero power to maintain an image. The displays are able to operate over an ambient temperature range of 0 to 40ºC and breakage detection is supported. PDi has already shipped several million of these versatile display units to its lead customer and is now making them available to the wider market.
