电泳式电子墨水(Electrophoretic Ink)

电泳式电子墨水(Electrophoretic Ink)技术通称为电子墨水(Electronic Ink)。将电子墨水涂布在一层塑料薄膜上,再贴覆上薄膜晶体管(TFT)电路,经由驱动IC控制,形成像素图形,创造了电子纸显示屏(Electronic Paper Displays, EPD),也常被习称为墨水屏、水墨屏等,具体而微地形容了这是一块用墨水、也像墨水制造出的屏幕。。




电子墨水由数百万个微胶囊(Microcapsules)所构成,微胶囊的大小约等同于人类头发的直径。每个微胶囊里含有电泳粒子悬浮于透明液体中,使用一种黑色电泳粒子的系统,创造出E Ink JustTint™

E Ink JustTint™利用较新的电压驱动方式,将黑色墨水移动至两侧,中间形成透明的通道,从上方看下来就是透明的。经由控制黑色墨水的分布,可以控制电子墨水薄膜从透明到不透明的通透度。

将E Ink JustTint™电子墨水薄膜贴覆至玻璃或塑料上,可以控制光的透射程度。

  • What is E Ink?

    E Ink is the creator of electronic ink — the optical component of a film used in Electronic Paper Displays. Although futuristic-sounding, electronic ink is actually a straightforward fusion of existing knowledge of chemistry, physics and electronics to create this new material. It's so much like paper, it actually utilizes the same pigments used in the printing industry today.

    While E Ink has several types of electronic ink, we became best known for our microcapsule technology. In this system, the electronic ink is made up of millions of tiny microcapsules, about the diameter of a human hair. Each microcapsule contains positively charged white particles and negatively charged black particles suspended in a clear fluid. When a positive or negative electric field is applied, corresponding particles move to the top of the microcapsule where they become visible to the user. This makes the surface appear white or black at that spot.

  • Does E Ink have a color product or is it only monochrome?

    E Ink has several color products available.

    E Ink also offers a three to five color product called E Ink Spectra, which is optimized for electronic shelf labels and point-of-purchase sale applications.

    In addition, E Ink offers a one-color product called E Ink Prism, which is optimized for the Architecture market.

    For full color, we have E Ink Gallery; and E Ink Kaleido in 4096 colors.

  • How long does it take to update an image on an E Ink Matrix display?

    An E Ink display module supports numerous modes for updating the display. Different modes exist to support the different update requirements. Update times can be as short as 120 ms. for the entire display. However, because E Ink screens are bi-stable, only the regions of the screen that are changing require updating. Any pixels that are not changing do not require updating.

  • Can an E Ink Matrix display support animation or video rates?

    Using the faster update modes, E Ink screens can support animation quality video rates. A number of examples are available from customers that show examples of E Ink screens showing video. However, constant updates reduce the power efficiency of our ink systems. Current production modules do not support video rate updates.
