Electric ink display

Why ZIKON

Paper-like displays are opening previously inaccessible segments in the display market. They are characterized by low power consumption and paper-like appearance, including ambient -light readability without a backlight and wide viewing angles.

 

Zikon's proprietary electric ink technology meets market demands for paper-like displays by offering high contrast and great viewability along with low voltage (logic level) operation at an exceptionally affordable cost.
