LG -Flexible E-Paper
LG shows off a prototype of their flexible e-paper display. Their flexible display is the largest (and perhaps most flexible and bendable) on the market, weighing in at a long 19″ and paper thin. It’s about the size of A3 paper, and it uses metal foil layered over a TFT display, instead of a glass substrate, which allows the image to retain its shape as it bends and warps.
The key difference in the LG prototype is the size and the amount of flexibility it retains. It uses a Gate in Panel (GIP) technology, which places the Gate Driver IC into the panel itself, rather than along the spine or the outside of the device. With other flexible e-paper screens, the Gate Driver is placed into the side of the device, and this seriously limits how bendable and flexible it is.
