LG Display unveils newspaper-size flexible e-paper

LG Display has announced its development of a newspaper-size flexible e-paper. The 19-inch wide (250x400mm) flexible e-paper is almost as big as a page of A3 sized newspaper. The product is optimized for an e-newspaper and able to convey the feeling of reading an actual newspaper. Additionally, as the product measures 0.3 millimeters thin, the e-paper weighs just 130 grams despite its 19-inch size.

LG Display arranged TFT on metal foil rather than glass substrate, allowing the e-paper display to recover its original shape after being bent. The use of a metal foil substrate makes the e-paper both flexible and durable while maintaining display qualities. In particular, LG Display applied GIP (gate-in-panel) technology which integrates the gate driver IC onto the panel. This improves its flexibility by removing driver ICs which are attached to the side of panel and hinder the bending of the display.

CTO and executive VP of LG Display, In Jae Chung said, “Our development of the world’s largest flexible display has opened up a new market in the next-generation display sector of e-paper. As the e-paper market is growing at a rapid pace, LG Display will continue to deliver new value to customers and the market through industry-leading technologies and differentiated products.”

Meanwhile LG Display plans to launch mass production of an 11.5-inch flexible e-paper display in the first half of 2010.

LG Display cited DisplaySearch saying that the e-book market will grow from approximately US$370 million in 2009 to US$1.2 billion in 2011 and to US$1.73 billion in 2015.

    What is the point of this? People want to carry more compact, easier to carry stuff, not bigger and more unwieldy.

    It doesn’t show color, video, or any of the useful things that even a used netbook or notebook will do. I’m throwing the “Fail” flag.

    low power use, reusable display that is much cheaper than lcd. If touch capable this could make for roll up computers that are much lighter than current machines with the same size of display… calling this fail is a little premature.

    This is a e-paper. You don’t know about e-paper, did you? e-paper can’t display color or video, but it can save much more battery. Study more!!
    Also, it is very hard work to make the big flexible display.Study more!!@James Smith João Pessoa, Brazil

    You know, this kind of reminds me of that old story of the lady the cuts half the turkey to prepare it for Thanksgiving and her husband asks her why she does it and she says she doesn’t know, she does it because her mom always did it, do he goes ask her mother why she cuts the turkey and grandma says she doesn’t know, she does because her mom did it. So the guy goes as great grandma why she cuts almost half the turkey wasting so much meat and the old lady finally tells him that back in the day she didn’t have a big enough pan, so had to cut a big piece of the turkey so it would fit in what she had!

    The actual newspaper (classic) format is horrible… but it was what we had back in the day. I believe the main goal of technology is to improve things and make them more practical, not immitate and old thing in a new way! Kinda like cutting half the turkey when a big enough pan would be easily available.

    I’m very confortable reading newspapers on my ipad or iphone, I would never carry around this akward e-paper just to pretend I’m reading a newspaper the old style!

    james smith. you sir have no idea what you are talking about. This is a breakthrough technology, the beginning of something great. Its just like computers, the were bad to start and now look at them. Same with this, as the technology grows, we will get color then video, then sweet sweet glorious cellphones with slide out screens.
