This is the E-Ink / Paper display device integrated by the image display technology of Microencapsulated Electrophoretic Display (MED). This device has an approach to create a tiny spheres in which the charge color pigments are suspending the transparent electrode layer that moves depending on the electronic charge. The screen display patterns by reflecting the ambient light and no background light needed it is more clearer under the sunlight. This device is ideal choice application such as shelf label, industrial instruments, home and appliances, automotive, mobile devices such as E-Paper, E-Book, E-Reader and Smart Watch. The data communication of this device is using 3 wire, 4 wire SPI Serial Peripheral Interface that runs on 3.3v and generates 4 color, black, white, grey, and red.
