New Advances In Reflective And Transmissive Electrophoretic Display Technology
Estrel Convention Center, Berlin, Germany
14:20 - 14:40
New advances in flexible electrophoretic display (EPD) technology will be presented including 4 particle full color displays using no CFA, variable transmission windows, magnetically written EPD, and conformable EPD technology. Applications for such technology in automotive and consumer segments will be discussed.
Dr. Michael McCreary is responsible for expanding the portfolio of advanced technologies at E Ink which are enabling new generations of novel electronic products. McCreary is a 44-year veteran of the imaging industry and also serves as the Chairman of the SEMI FlexTech Governing Council, an industry consortium. Prior to joining E Ink in 2000, he held a number of leadership positions with Eastman Kodak Company, including General Manager of the Microelectronics Technology Division. McCreary earned a Ph.D. in Physical Organic Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and completed further studies in solid state and device physics at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
E Ink is the originator, and commercial leader in ePaper technology. E Ink was spun out of the MIT Media Labs as a startup in Cambridge MA in 2007 and its microencapsulated electrophoretic display technology is now the display of choice for eBook readers and electronic shelf labels, and in increasing use in wearables, signage and IoT. These displays are reflective, fully bistable, and capable of maintaining an image for years with no power. The flexible front planes are coated roll to roll kilometers at a time. Worldwide operations include R&D facilities in the US, Taiwan, and Japan and manufacturing in the US, Taiwan, and China.
