Custom glass-free display solutions

If you have a specific design in mind and none of our reference designs are suitable,
why not consider a bespoken Lectum® design?

We are the experts in glass-free, flexible display manufacturing and
have developed a project program for customized display solutions.

Bridging the gap

We don’t just have a lot of experience in designing glass-free, flexible electrophoretic displays (EPD); we also have a great deal of experience designing displays with and specifically for customers. If you have an idea, but don’t know how to make it work, then have no fear. We do!

Our custom project program consists of four or five stages (depending on your specifications and budget) including design evaluation, development and production. All custom projects are subject to NRE and a minimum order quantity.

Getting started

In order to begin custom design activities, it is important for the customer to define the following requirements:

  • display active area
  • pixel density
  • bezel size
  • location of driver electronics
  • overall module size including tolerances

You're just one click away from your custom design!

If you have already determined these details, contact us to find out how our flexible display technology can solve your product design dilemma today.

If not, please read on below.

Choosing a platform

All Lectum® displays are based on one of three platforms, which we have developed using specific, market-leading EPD controllers:

  • Smaller Lectum displays are designed using the Ultrachip UC8156
  • Lectum displays with a larger number of pixels are designed using the Epson S1D13541
  • A scalable platform with multiple EPD driver chips has been developed for large Lectum displays.

We select the appropriate display platform for your custom design based on an initial analysis of the requested display active area and the pixel density. This is an integral part of our in-house project plan.

Transparency and satisfaction

When it comes to developing custom displays, it is important that the process is transparent and that issues are identified and dealt with early. This is why we have established our own project program, enabling a step-by-step evaluation and development approach to your personalized display solution.

This project program has been the key to all of our successful partnerships where custom plastic displays have been required.

Discover the Lectum® display platforms

Every EPD display requires an EPD controller and Lectum displays are no exception.
EPD controllers mainly differ in the maximum number of supported pixels and each of our platforms
is, therefore, suited to a specific dimension of display. It should be noted that the number of pixels
is not only dependent on the active display area but also on the pixel density (ppi).
