It looks like we are getting closer to having a viable product with a Clearink display. It was announced today that Tianma, the leader in electronic display manufacturing has signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish a partnership framework for developing CLEARink’s patented ePaper 2.0 displays. Under the partnership framework, Tianma will develop TFT backplane and module assemblies for CLEARink’s next generation ePaper displays for tablets and other applications.
Tianma has been a manufacturing and technology leader in small to medium size displays for over three decades. Tianma’s well-combined fablines and rich operational experience are well adapted to guarantee a high quality supply of CLEARink’s ePaper 2.0 displays for various applications ranging from tablets and smart watches.
CLEARink’s ePaper 2.0 technology has been trial manufactured and tested and the company will soon ship sample kits to select customers to commence the next phase of design. CLEARink’s ePaper 2.0 technology brings color and video to applications that require low power and sunlight readability.
“We have market demand and multiple customer commitments for our ePaper 2.0 displays,” said Frank Christiaens, CEO & Chairman, CLEARink Displays. “Our partnership with industry leader Tianma will accelerate our product and process development and allow us to serve customers in various geographies.”
