The cells are 40% thinner, flexible enough to handle repetitive bends, operate in a wider range of temperatures, and can be cut-toshape.
The displays are readable at an angle of nearly 180° under every light condition from direct sun to low-level ambient. The lightweight, shatterproof plastic cells are conformable, so designers can incorporate curves into consumer electronics, PC-accessories, smart cards, capacity indicators, and electronic shelf labels.
These cells are divided into discrete segments that can be controlled individually to convey information using letters, numbers, and predefined icons. Customers then add drive electronics and use them in their products.
