A Taiwanese electronic paper reprints

The Industrial and Technological Institute of Taiwan (ITRI) has introduced an electronic paper he hopes to market within two years, according to information reported by IDG. He has the distinction of being printed as a conventional paper. The prototype could display the colors red green and blues. It is not yet possible to mix them.

It is possible to use thermal printers, like those of faxes or send an electronic signal. It is a technology that ITRI has purchased Kodak in 2007. At the time, the paper only supported a monochrome printing at 6 dpi. Today, it is possible to print the colors green, red and blues at a resolution of 300 dpi.

ITRI does not intend this kind of support to the general public, but to manufacturers. He envisions posters or electronic tickets, short of requiring carriers to be refreshed often enough. Prototypes can be printed 260 times. The institute hopes to increase that number to 500. It is also possible to use paper as a screen classic demonstration showing a clock updates every second.

The goal is to compete in the paper market and provide a physical screen that consumes far less than traditional LCD panels. For example, a 5-inch screen with LED backlit require 1.2 W. ITRI model would not require only 0.54 W. The technological details are slim at the moment, but the institute would work with nine Taiwanese companies for marketing.
