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.
Plastic Logic's most recent research activities have been to develop a transmissive backplane, that can be used in devices with a backlight. Transmissive backplanes have the same electrical properties as its reflective backplanes, but have been designed in such as way to open up a big aperture inside each pixel, in order to achieve a high level of transmission.
