Plastic Logic showcases e-paper R&D initiatives
Check out the world's first colour flexible plastic display with video rate driven by OTFTs
Plastic Logic opened the doors of it's Cambridge lab on 27 June, to give journalists and analysts an insight into some of its research and development projects. As well as demonstrating the world's first colour flexible plastic display with video rate driven by organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs), the company was also keen to show off some of its other innovations, including, transmissive backplanes, ultra-thin form factors and plastic displays embedded with silicon chips.
In order to make its products more attractive to device manufacturers, Plastic Logic has been experimenting with bonding silicon chips directly with the plastic. Here the chips are embedded around the edge of the display, removing the need for external attachments. The LCD industry is using this technology on glass. The company said that using plastic takes the technology to another level, combining the large plastic electronics displays with the high functionality of the silicon.
