Seiko Epson and E-Ink have announced a new jointly developed display controller IC for color EPD, the S1D13524.
The S1D13524 is a high-performance EPD controller with a built-in color processor for E Ink's VizplexM-enabled electronic color paper displays, the companies said.
The new display controller includes a high-performance color engine that can be easily configured to match customers' color and CFA needs. It has a built-in dither function to minimize host overhead, and can be connected to any host processor through a 16-bit parallel or TFT LCD bus, they said.
Samples of the Epson S1D13524 will be available in June at US$24. Production quantities will be available in December 2010.
