E Ink displays are transforming visual technology through their minimal power usage, eye-friendly features, and diverse applications.

  • E Ink displays are a type of electronic paper display technology that mimics the appearance of traditional ink on paper.
    • It uses millions of tiny microcapsules filled with positively charged white particles and negatively charged black particles suspended in a clear fluid.
    • Often confused with E Paper, E Ink is a specific technology within the E Paper category.
