Adaptive Electrophoretic Displays

Adaptive Electrophoretic Displays

Our innovative concept was to combine multiple flexible electrophoretic panels into a billboard-sized display capable of presenting very large images. The client commissioned us to develop this idea into a fully working prototype.

The work involved laminating a number of displays together into sub-assembly modules that could be configured to cover areas of many different shapes and sizes. For the project to be successful, we had to solve a range of new and diverse challenges, such as:

  • Defining the optimum size and shape of the modules
  • Selecting suitable lamination films and adhesives
  • Establishing an appropriate method of attaching circuit boards to the flexible modules
  • Developing the lamination and assembly processes
  • Ruggedizing and protecting the electronics from the environment

The development team brought with it a crucial blend of youthful creativity, knowledge of current technology and a broad range of experience. These elements, allied with input from our comprehensive supplier base, enabled us to generate creative solutions to the problems we faced.

Everyone on the team used their technical and industrial knowledge to anticipate which design features or processes could have been problematic. Clever design and well-defined process control prevented these having any detrimental effect on product specification, cost or timescale. The result is a practical prototype design that meets all of the client’s requirements.

Initial in-house functional and robustness testing has had good results and client trials have been very successful. There is significant potential for further development for this innovative idea.
