Transforming applications

We live in a fast-paced world where we have become used to (and even expect) technology and design to adapt to our needs. Yet we remain content with flat, rigid displays restricting the scope for innovation in a vast range of today’s applications.

Well, this no longer has to be the case. Lectum® glass-free ePaper displays
are in the market and transforming applications as we speak.

Breaking the mold

By creating Lectum - glass-free electrophoretic displays (EPD) - we enable our customers to develop original applications and products. That is because Lectum displays are flexible displays, allowing form factors, which have been hitherto impossible when using conventional, glass-based EPD.

Moreover, Lectum displays are extremely robust and completely shatterproof, so display modules can now be integrated in new ways, opening up new markets to product manufacturers.

  • Robust and shatterproof
  • Ultra-thin and lightweight
  • Low-power
  • High resolution
  • Extremely legible
  • Production-ready
  • High yield
  • Proven in the market

Revolutionizing markets

Lectum displays are a viable option for a wide range of applications. Nevertheless, they have been proven to be particularly well suited to certain markets where they are already revolutionizing product design today.

FAQ


How flexible are Lectum displays?

Unlike conventional glass-based EPDs, Lectum displays are plastic based and therefore the only truly flexible, active-matrix EPDs on the market. They have a typical bendability radius of 50 mm.


How heavy are Lectum displays?

A display’s weight depends on its size and configuration. Please refer to the respective datasheet for details.


How much power do Lectum displays require?

Our Lectum displays are truly bi-stable meaning power is only needed for an update and not to show a static image. The energy required for a typical image update depends on the display size and driver chip setup; starting at just a few mJ per update for smaller displays, allowing battery-less NFC applications. For details please refer to the respective datasheet.


What is the resolution of Lectum displays?

The resolution of our Lectum displays varies depending on the size. Please refer to the respective datasheet for more details.


Which size displays are available?

Plastic Logic Germany manufactures and sells EPDs in a range of sizes and configurations. You can find detailed information on our offering here.


What if I require a different sized display to those offered on your website?

We also offer tailor-made display solutions in addition to the reference designs listed in our product portfolio. Custom projects are subject to NRE and a minimum order quantity.


What is electrophoretic technology?

Electrophoretic technology refers to the process whereby thousands of microcapsules, containing (negatively charged) black and (positively charged) white pigments suspended in a clear fluid, are encapsulated in a plastic sheet.

When a charge (positive or negative) is applied, the corresponding particles move to the top of the microcapsule and the surface appears black or white in this specific area. When the charge is removed, the particles stay where they are. This is called bi-stability: where something can rest in either of two states.

In the case of an EPD, the text and/or images remain on the screen until the next update and the user can continue to view the content without the need for battery power. This means EPDs are inherently low-power and is one of the main differentiators to conventional backlit flat panel displays, where a constant power supply is required to maintain content.
