Ynvisible's technology

Electrochromic Displays

The Ynvisible Display is a so-called Electrochromic Display ("ECD") based on organic electrochromic polymers. It is categorized as a reflective display - meaning that it reflects ambient light instead of using a backlight. The displays are screen-printed on a plastic substrate, which makes the displays very thin and flexible.

ENERGY

Ynvisible's displays have the lowest energy consumption on the market for most use-cases. For static usage (when the display maintains the same image) the display consumes a maximum of 0,28µW per cm2 segment area. For dynamic usage, the power consumption depends on the number of display updates per day according to the formula below.

Power calculation

P = 0,28 + 0,01 × n µW/cm2
n is the number of full display updates per day
Ynvisible power consumption per square centimeter per number of display updates per day.

Example 1: The display is readable only when needed

Example 2: The display is always readable

COST

Ynvisible is the world leader in Sheet-to-Sheet and Roll-to-Roll production of electrochromic technology. These high volume production methods, in addition to cost-effective materials sourcing, drive down the cost of individual displays while maintaining high production yield, rapid through-put speed, and premium quality. Choosing Ynvisible’s display technology will reduce cost at both the component level and the system level.

Lower Component Cost

Ynvisible offers a low-cost alternative to reflective segmented LCDs, which have historically been the most inexpensive display technology on the market. The key driver for the low price point is low-cost production techniques with high volume capabilities

The screen-printing techniques used in our production lines require less capital investment, energy, tooling costs, and material waste compared to vacuum deposition and chemical vapor deposition processes used for other display technologies.

The displays are produced on inexpensive PET substrates, and the rapid growth of the printed electronics industry has resulted in an economy of scale for the functional inks that are used to produce the displays.

Lower System Cost

Using an ultra-low power consumption display which is easy to integrate with no or little extra driver electronics will save cost on a system level. Many of our clients have been able to reduce or completely remove their existing power supply by choosing our Segmented displays.

APPEARANCE

Ynvisible rarely creates standard display components. Our philosophy is that each product requires a unique display for an ultimate user experience.

The printability of the displays ensures that customers can attain a degree of customization that is not available from alternative display technologies. This creates an attractive appearance that is highly appreciated by both product designers and end-users.

Flexible Display Design

Display segments can be designed in essentially any shape and form. Letters, symbols, numbers, and graphics elements are all possible.

Colors and Graphic Overlays

Color filters and other static graphic elements can easily be printed on top of the display. The graphic overlay is commonly used to add graphics that should always be visible and complement the dynamic display segments.

Cut-out Shapes

Most conventional displays are bulky rectangle shapes. This is not the case for Ynvisible Displays. Essentially any cut-out shape is possible, whatever fits your product the best.

ROBUSTNESS

The displays have a wide operating range and are very durable to heating or cooling chocks. Since they are printed on a plastic substrate they are very durable in terms of physical impact, bending, and piercing. They will not break, crack, or shatter like conventional glass-based displays.

Sustainability

Eco-friendly and non-toxic display alternative thanks to energy-efficient production processes, organic materials, and overall low material usage. Ynvisible's displays are an ideal choice for single-use and disposable products.
