WOBURN, Mass., Sept. 18 -- E Ink Corp. has opened a flexible microelectronics facility to house E Ink's Microelectronics Technology Group. The group will develop microelectronics, including flexible transistors, which will enable E Ink to create paper-like display prototypes next year.
"Despite the current economic climate, E Ink is investing heavily in R&D and is poised for dramatic growth next year," said Jim Iuliano, president and CEO of E Ink.
E Ink's flexible microelectronics facility will create flexible electronic ink displays based on new transistor designs and novel materials and processes. Such active matrix displays could be rolled and flexed as easily as paper.
