The technology behind the E Ink Display Module

The E Ink Display Module is based on Microencapsulated Electrophoretic Display (MED). This technology is ultra-low-power-consumption. The working process is based on the scattering of the suspended particles of the pigments by flowing current through though the display. The power input is only needed to scatter these pigment spheres in the desired position. Once the image is formed, there remains no need for electricity and the image or content stays on the display for a long time.
