e-Paper displays offer new and innovative design and application opportunities

15 March 2024

Bi-stable display technology is ideal for low-power battery-powered equipment and handheld devices.

Display solutions and embedded systems provider, Review Display Systems (RDS) has announced the availability of a new range of low-power monochrome and colour e-Paper displays.

Review Display Systems can supply a wide range of monochrome and colour e-Paper display panels in sizes from 1.54" to 42". Segment and dot matrix types, with a range of different resolutions, are available.

Ideal for low-power applications, e-Paper displays use a bi-stable display technology where no applied power is required to maintain a display image. The display image will be retained when all power sources are removed. An e-Paper display will only consume power when the display image is being changed or updated.

Bi-stable e-Paper displays can help to reduce system power consumption and extend the lifetime of battery-power products. Significant power savings can be achieved when using an e-Paper display when compared with an equivalent-sized TFT LCD.

e-Paper displays are reflective, therefore in bright, ambient light environments, the display image will appear brighter with enhanced colour saturation. Users of e-Paper displays are not subject to the same eye fatigue that can be experienced when viewing TFT LCDs over a prolonged period of time.

With an e-Paper display, the need for an LED backlight is eliminated, which also reduces power consumption when compared to transmissive TFT LCDs.

e-Paper displays are comprised of an ink layer laminated to a flexible, plastic film substrate. Plastic-based e-Paper displays allow the end product to be lighter and thinner than products using glass-based TFT display modules.

In addition, in extreme environments, glass-based TFTs can be susceptible to shock, extreme vibration and physical drops, whereas the use of plastic-based e-Paper displays can provide a more robust display solution.

e-Paper displays are suitable for use in a wide range of innovative and unique applications including battery-powered devices, handheld equipment, medical systems, retail systems, wearables, IoT devices and many more.

An extensive e-Paper display product range is now available from Review Display Systems. For further information, design advice and technical support contact Review Display Systems at or call 01959 563345
