Bi-Stable LCD from Lumex
Bi-stable LCDs.
Palatine, IL — Lumex has introduced its InfoVue Bi-Stable family of displays, a low-power LCD solution well-suited for a wide range of applications where display information is not changed more than a few times a day. For some applications, the Lumex InfoVue Bi- Stable LCD requires up to 99 percent less energy consumption than traditional LCD technologies.

A traditional LCD module requires 25 to 50mW of constant power to display even a static, unchanging image. Lumex's Bi-Stable LCDs can display the same information for over a year after power has been turned off with just a onetime 2-to-5 second burst of 10mW of power. The new technology enables users to more easily update vital display information while also generating cost and manpower savings. Compatible with a variety of LCD configurations, the bi-stable technology can replace standard LCD technology or printed displays where information changes with less frequency than is the case for traditional LCD applications.

InfoVue Bi-Stable LCD use an innovative cholesteric solution instead of the traditional twisted nematic liquid crystal solution. This feature allows the LCD to provide consistent performance with extremely low energy requirements. This provides significant cost savings for applications transitioning away from higher-energy consuming traditional LCDs.

InfoVue Bi-Stable LCD technology comes with complimentary integration support. The company's technical design specialists can integrate the bi-stable technology with LEDs, light pipes, switches, connectors and other key components to create solutions that maximize performance and efficiency in each individual application. The RoHs-compliant devices are available in custom sizes ranging from 1/4-in. to 9-1/2-in. (6.35 to 241.3mm). Samples are available in a 2.8-in. (7.1mm) size with 128 x 64 resolution. The displays are available in black-on-yellow or blue-on-white color formats.
