Cost-Effective Custom Display Prototypes
October 28, 2020
One of Ynvisible's services include the production of customized display prototypes. We achieve cost-effective prototyping by printing new custom-designed displays each month for several clients at the same time and thereby sharing the fixed cost of production. Contact email@example.com if you are interested.
Mimbly AB, a fast-growing Swedish hardware company developing sustainable laundry solutions, is one of our many clients that have been utilizing the custom display prototype offers.
"We were able to iterate several design ideas in a way that saved us both time and money. We will continue to use the Custom Display Prototype offer for future display concepts as the first step before scaling up." Emil Westman, CDO at Mimbly.
This offer is made for all of our clients that are interested in custom-designed displays for evaluation and testing before entering pilot- or mass production. If you are new to our technology, please visit our online shop for standardized evaluation kits. The Custom Display Prototypes offer is mainly targeting the technology included in the Segment Display Kit and Transparent Display Kit.
How does it work?
The printed electrochromic displays are produced using screen-printing processes. Screen-printing is a highly flexible production technique as it can combine both conventional graphic print with functional printed electronics.
At the prototyping phase, we use sheet-based production with a functional print area of approximately 20 cm x 30 cm. Each client will get an allocated spot on the sheet for their display design(s). Each production will include 10-20 sheets.
The process includes:
- Clients provide display designs or sketches
- Validation of display designs
- Production layout including all displays
- Screen printing tools fabrication
- Production of displays
How much does it cost?
2500 EUR per display design.
Will I get display drivers?
We offer standardized display drivers but also custom display driver solutions if the standard drivers are not compatible with your display design and electrode/pin arrangement. We charge €200 for 3 standard display drivers and €1000 for 3 customized display drivers.
How many displays will I get?
The number of displays you will receive mainly depends on the outer dimensions of your display design. The effective print area is approximately 20 cm x 30 cm at this prototyping stage. This area will be shared among all display designs, where each client will be allocated at least one design per sheet. Normally, there will be space for more than display per sheet if the display dimensions are relatively small. The standard custom display prototype batch includes 10 sheets, which means that you will receive 10 multiplied with the number of displays per sheet given 100% production yield.
Can I try several designs at the same time?
I am interested - what do you need from me?
Please send a simple sketch of your display design(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org and a sales representative will guide you through the process.
What are the design limitations?
The display designs are essentially up to your imagination, but our engineers need to make sure that they are compatible with our design rules before being produced. Please send an email to email@example.com if you request the design rules. Also, please remember that Ynvisible offers segment displays, such as symbols and digits, and not high-resolution matrix displays.
