CLEARink and Tianma announce memorandum of understanding
Tianma, a Chinese leader in electronic display manufacturing based in Shanghai, and CLEARink Displays (Fremont, California), a leader in next-generation ePaper, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to establish a partnership framework for developing CLEARink’s patented ePaper 2.0 displays. Under the partnership framework, Tianma will develop TFT backplane and module assemblies for CLEARink’s next generation ePaper displays for tablets and other applications.
Tianma has been a manufacturing and technology leader in small to medium size displays for over three decades. Tianma’s well-combined fab lines and rich operational experience are well adapted to guarantee high quality supply of CLEARink’s ePaper 2.0 displays for various applications ranging from tablets to IoT (Internet of Things).
CLEARink’s ePaper 2.0 technology has been trial manufactured and tested and the company will soon ship sample kits to select customers to commence the next phase of design. CLEARink’s ePaper 2.0 technology brings colour and video to applications that require low power and sunlight readability.
“We have market demand and multiple customer commitments for our ePaper 2.0 displays,” said Frank Christiaens, CEO & chairman, CLEARink Displays. “Our partnership with industry leader Tianma will accelerate our product and process development and allow us to serve customers in various geographies.”
