CLEARink wins 2017 IDTechEx Award
CLEARink Displays (Fremont, California) won the prestigious IDTechEx Award for Printed Electronics – Technical Development Materials for its video-capable ePaper display at the annual IDTechEx Show! on 15 November 2017.
The award recognises outstanding progress in the development and commercialisation of printed electronics technology, which will be used in unique applications. CLEARink’s revolutionary display technology is based on the phenomenon of total internal reflection (TIR) in combination with single particle electrophoretic technology. The displays are ultra-low power, thin as paper, feather light, sunlight readable, colour and video capable. Target markets include eSchoolbooks, wearables, IoT labels, signage and automotive.
“This is one of the most prestigious awards in the printed electronics industry globally,” said Raghu Das, CEO of IDTechEx. “On behalf of the independent judges and IDTechEx, I congratulate CLEARink Displays for creating video capable ePaper that the market has been looking for.”
CLEARink has received pre-orders from customers for eSchoolbook applications and has commenced trial manufacturing in a large LCD plant in Asia and expects to have samples in the next few months.
“We are delighted to receive the Printed Electronics Award from IDTechEx,” said Frank Christiaens, CEO of CLEARink Displays. “On behalf of our talented startup team, I wish to thank IDTechEx for this honour. We believe that we are solving some real problems in the industry in applications such as eSchoolbooks and wearables. We are encouraged that our vision has been validated repeatedly by our investors, customers, industry experts and independent observers.”
