IXYS driver ICs for electronic paper-type flexible displays

 IXYS has driver ICs which are aimed specifically at electronic paper-type flexible displays.

The MX860, which is a 268 output source driver IC, and the MXEI2300, a 300 output gate driver IC, are both used in flexible display products. The ICs were designed for low power, bi-stable, reflective displays that eliminate the need for backlighting.

Products incorporating organic or polymer based flexible displays are expected to move into production during 2008 and 2009.

"We have continued our R&D investments in the display IC area in the last few years. This started with our pioneering work in OLEDs, and expanded to product lines that enable the new flexible display technologies that are based on polymers and use less power than ordinary displays," said Dr. Nathan Zommer, CEO of IXYS.

The display IC technology comes out of the Clare Micronix division of IXYS.
