This should open up a lot of segments Eink and Freescale to make itself to become a prominent Eink technology provider. Combined with low power processors and these display technologies have the potential to creep into hitherto unexplored areas like advertising, small vendor POS, government mail, etc.

Freescale already had a high-end micro-controller with a built-in interface to E-Ink's displays, but now even low-end devices can benefit from eReader displays. The advantage of E-Ink's displays over LCDs is that they are nonvolatile, effectively acting as memory devices as well as displays. For retail shelf tags, for instance, the micro-controller could update tags one at a time, then power down and not have to update them again until the prices change, unlike LCDs that have to be updated every few milliseconds, thereby consuming orders of magnitude more energy.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
