The terminus of contemporary Mencius’mother’s three moves can be an”electronic schoolbag”

  The most classic example of the impact of environmental change on educational success is the”Meng Mu moved three times”in China.
  When Mencius was a child,he lived by the cemetery and played funeral games with the children of his neighbors.Mencius’mother immediately moved with him to the market.When they moved to the market,Mencius learned to do business with the children in the neighborhood.When Mencius’mother knew about it,she once again took Mencius moved to the academy.This time,Mencius began to be orderly,polite,and fond of reading,and eventually became the”sub-saint”of China admired by later generations.
  The story of Mencius’mother moving three times tells us a profound truth:educational environment has a very profound influence on a person’s growth.With the rapid development of modern education information technology,the application of high quality and healthy electronic schoolbag teaching environment in school education has become more and more normal,and”electronic schoolbag”has really become the information assistant for children’s study and life.
  In the intelligent education environment of electronic schoolbag,the classroom is guided by information technology,the teaching quality and learning interaction efficiency are improved,and students’autonomous learning ability is improved.So what does a”digital e-paper bag”look like?
  As a product of the era of”paperless books”,the electronic schoolbag with an electronic ink screen is ultra-thin,can be written by hand,and can maintain a display even when power is cut off.The e-paper screen can restore the reading experience of paper books and support the original handwriting.Reflective technology allows children to read and study for a long time without strong light causing irritation to the eyes,which can protect eyesight.E-paper displays use very little power to change frames and are about 27 percent lighter than liquid-crystal displays of the same size.The unique features of eye protection,energy saving,light weight and paper sense enable students to study healthily anytime and anywhere.
  The electronic schoolbag consists of three parts:”learning terminal+resources+teaching system”,covering teaching activities before,during and after class.Students can open it anytime and anywhere to do homework,directly download and submit homework online,and teachers can break through the time and space limitations to review and tutoring remotely anytime and anywhere,truly realizing zero distance between home and school.Electronic schoolbag cannot realize entertainment application,can effectively control students’entertainment.No matter where they go,as long as they carry it,they can realize efficient learning.
  The core technology and product of DKE–e-paper display screen,is used in electronic schoolbag,e-paper notebook and other teaching auxiliary products,which strongly promotes the reform and development of intelligent education and learning.DKE’s e-paper is widely used,in addition to the field of smart education,it has many bright spots in many fields such as new retail,smart office,smart logistics,smart life and smart medical treatment.

Suitable for spring use e-paper products recommendation

  E-paper has been widely used in people’s daily life,and even become an indispensable part of some people’s lives.Imperceptibly changes people’s sports and travel habits,making life more convenient and efficient in this spring.
E-Ink Watch
  With warmer temperatures,jogging,swimming,mountaineering and hiking are becoming the first choice for young people.A smart sports watch with electronic ink technology can help people avoid common problems such as troublesome use of mobile phones,inconvenient charging when there is no electricity during outdoor sports,and difficulty in seeing recorded data under the direct sunlight.
  Compared to the average sports smartwatch on the market,the electronic paper display sports smartwatch has the unique advantage of sunlight visibility due to its reflective technology,whether in the sun or in the swimming pool,the data on the wrist is clearly visible at all angles.In those cases,traditional sports smartwatches and phones with their screens turned to maximum brightness or held by hand can’t be seen clearly.
  The sports watch is in a state of motion all the time,which is bound to affect the power and battery life.Because of the unique bistable technology of e-paper,the electronic ink sports smart watch has abnormal power saving performance.A 1.1-inch E-Ink Sport smartwatch lasts up to 20 hours with GPS on and up to seven days with all other functions turned off.
  In addition,the lightweight nature of e-paper screens also makes spring workouts lighter and less burdening.
E-paper baggage label
  Many friends choose to travel in the spring,travel peak season,wait in line to check luggage waste time to miss the plane?Luggage loss caused by missing barcode?Baggage delays can only be passively awaited by the airport baggage inquiry department?In case of any kind of problem,an electronic luggage tag can be avoided.
  Instead of arriving at the airport two hours in advance and queuing up to check in,e-paper luggage tags can be handled online as long as travelers use a mobile APP at home.It only takes a few seconds for the electronic ink screen of the luggage tag to display information such as bar code and flight number.Upon arrival at the airport,the luggage tag will be self-checked using the electronic luggage tag.
  When you check in with an electronic luggage tag,an electronic tag is generated through an electronic tag printer,which contains the passenger’s luggage ID information,such as weight,origin,destination,etc.Under the luggage tracking system,passengers can see the status and location of their luggage by scanning or entering their baggage tag number through their smart phones.
  The electronic baggage label is made of flexible e-paper,which is resistant to falling,breaking and not easy to fall off.It can greatly reduce the risk of luggage loss.

Arbor Day | Explore paperless application in the new world

On March 12, we ushered in the 43rd Chinese Arbor Day. Afforestation is an important way to improve the environment, But China is a big user of paper, and all industries are consuming a lot of paper, excessive paper leads to a large number of trees are cut down.

Rather than planting a tree, it is more important to save resources at the root of daily life, so “paperless” is becoming increasingly important.The implementation of “paperless” will greatly reduce the waste of paper, reduce tree felling from the source, improve the quality of the ecological environment.

Paperless, one is to remove paper, the other is to replace paper. The core technology and product of DKE, e-paper, is to make the ideal of paperless life into reality through the application of e-paper products to replace traditional paper in various fields.In recent years, China has vigorously advocated “energy conservation and environmental protection” and promoted the concept of environmental protection and low carbon, which is the inevitable result of digitization and intelligence in the era of Internet of Things.

The paperless office

Traditional office scenes will produce a large number of paper documents, and the commonly used table cards and work cards in enterprises must be reprinted every time when they are changed, which is not only environmentally friendly, but also time-consuming.Enterprise paperless office applications such as e-paper smart table cards, e-paper identification cards, e-paper office notebooks, all use electronic ink screen technology, which is almost the same as paper visually, with very low power consumption, and almost no power consumption when the screen does not change the content, which can replace the traditional paper recycling.

The new retail

The retail industry frequently changes the paper price tag during promotion, which wastes a lot of paper and also causes human operation errors. ESL provide retail industry with a solution that can be improved. Automatic price change management, reduce labor cost, paperless operation, save material cost, improve interaction, and improve customer experience.

The urban traffic

The application of e-paper in urban transportation fully reflects the development concept of low-carbon environmental protection and green energy saving, such as e-paper bus stop signs, smart meters, oil price signs, with low power consumption, no replacement of the picture no power consumption, and independent operation without connection to the municipal electricity.

The smart medical

With the construction of “Internet medical treatment + smart hospital” promoted, e-paper is gradually replacing the use of traditional paper. Such as electronic paper notebooks, bedside cards, outpatient information cards, greatly reduce the waste of paper and the burden of hospital manpower and reduce the error rate. The reflective and ultra-low consumption features of e-paper allow patients to rest without the interference of light pollution from conventional electronic screens, and also improve the quality of care and patient satisfaction.

The wisdom logistics

The prosperity of the logistics industry has increased the consumption of paper express orders. China’s express industry consumes more than 9 million tons of paper waste every year, which has a great impact on the environment.The e-paper logistics label is an ideal choice for realizing the development of green logistics by adding a tracking device using electronic paper display screen into the package to accurately grasp the logistics information. At the same time, due to its bistable characteristics, it can continuously display the logistics information without consuming power. The power consumption is extremely low, and the power can be used for several weeks when the power is full.

DKE has been focusing on the diversified application and innovation of new electronic paper display technology in the field of Internet of Things. In the future, we will continue to develop and develop new e-paper technology and new products, to provide paperless green energy saving and environmental protection solutions for all walks of life and fields, and to protect the environment and save resources in more intelligent ways, so as to make contributions to the construction of a better environment.

What is electronic paper,read this article enough !

  With the development of time,the technical advantages of electronic paper have been recognized continuously,and more and more applications have been involved.But It may be difficult for some new users to understand at once.We list some questions that everyone is most concerned about to help you understand e-paper quickly.
  Q1:What is e-paper?
  Electronic paper is the electronic ink coating on a layer of plastic film,can be pasted on the thin film transistor(TFT/PET/FPC material)circuit,through the drive IC control,forming pixel graphics.
  Q2:What is the display principle of electronic paper?
  E-paper displays are based on e-ink technology,which uses tiny”microcapsules”on the surface of the screen to encapsulate negatively charged black particles and positively charged white particles.By changing the electric charge,the different colored particles are arranged in order to create a black-and-white visual effect.
  Q3:Will the response time of the e-paper display be slow?
  The response speed of electronic paper is about 50-100 milliseconds,which is suitable enough for everyday still pictures with slow switching frequency.Compared with traditional display screens,electronic paper has many advantages such as paper-like feeling,clearly visible in the sunlight,ultra-low power consumption and so on.
  Q4:Why can the electronic paper display be super long standby?
  In the absence of power supply,the screen image will not disappear and still display continuously.The electronic paper display screen uses bistable technology,power is consumed only when changing pictures,and does not consume power when the picture is still.Compared with other display products,the electronic paper display screen has excellent power saving performance.
  Q5:Can the electronic paper display be read properly under sunlight?
  The electronic paper display does not need backlight at all.The ambient light source is used to hit the electronic paper display screen and then refract the light to the eyes of us,which is the same as the visual principle of traditional paper or objects in life.Therefore,the brighter the ambient light source,the more clearly the electronic paper will be visible,And it has a wide viewing Angle of 170°.
  Q6:Why do electronic paper screens protect your eyes?
  Electronic paper displays can reflect ambient light,while other technology displays use strong backlights adjusted by liquid crystals.These light sources directly into the eyes can easily lead to dry eyes and visual fatigue,and blue light can cause eye lesions and other problems.Electronic paper display without backlight module can ensure eye health.
  Q7:Can the electronic paper display is not damaged after bending?
  The electronic paper display,which is as light as paper and can be rolled and folded at will,it is also very portable because it is made of flexible substrate material.Not only free bending to change the shape,also get rid of the traditional display shape constraint,stronger,not easy to break,greatly reduce the probability of damage to the end product.
  Q8:How thin and light is e-paper?
  Electronic paper has a clear advantage in terms of thickness and weight,due to its simple structure and the fact that the material is based on a soft plastic film,which is as light as a featherweight.For example,a flexible e-paper display module with a 13.3-inch plastic substrate weighs about the same as 15 sheets of A4 and is about the same thickness as seven sheets of A4.
  Q9:What are the common e-paper applications in daily life?
  Due to the unique advantages of electronic paper,it has been applied in every field of life.For example,some bus stop signs in Shanghai have been installed with electronic paper screens to display bus routes dynamically in real time,and rely on solar energy for charging.Electronic paper shelf label replaces the traditional paper price tag,can change the price information,reduce the use of paper more environmentally friendly;Electronic paper can be seen in many applications,such as electronic paper conference board,electronic paper badge label and smart wearable.
  The development and application of electronic paper technology will bring about a revolution in the field of intelligent living,so it is necessary to have a certain understanding of it in advance.After reading this article,I believe you have a more comprehensive understanding of electronic paper technology!

E-Ink is focusing on alternative markets to power growth

      The e-reader revolution has started to diversify into different market segments in recent years. They initially started to branch into digital signage which was valued at $16.88 Billion in 2015 and is expected to reach $27.34 Billion by 2022. E-Ink is also focused on price tags and has retail partnerships with Whole Foods. This segment has accounted for 100% percent year over year growth for the past three years and is now accounts for significant growth.
       In the second quarter of 2016 E-ink has just posted an operating profit of $5,437,895 and this is the first time they have been profitable for quite awhile. In the first quarter of the year for example, they posted a $8.4 million dollar loss.
       If you break down their financials 35% of their revenue derives from e-tags used in luggage, digital signage and LCD panels.
       Over the course of the last few years E-ink has partnered with a European company called Visionect. They provide DIY kits for companies wanting to do things such as E-Ink Keyboards, Museums and bus signs.
       Speaking of Bus Signs, this is a hot new growth market for E-Ink. Information is dynamic and all of the information is updated via 3G. The signs are also readable in direct sunlight and they also incorporate back lite technology, so the screens are illuminated at night.
       There are a few in Australia right now, Boston and one near Waterloo Bridge in the United Kingdom. The UK is so happy with the technology that they plan is to introduce a further three in Parliament Square, Piccadilly Circus and Sloane Square in the next few months.
       The core focus on alternative markets is starting to stagnant e-paper development for the e-readers. At SID Display Week this past May, E-Ink announced a new Advanced Color ePaper (ACeP), a high quality, full color reflective display. For the first time ever, an electrophoretic display (EPD) can produce full color at every pixel without the use of a color filter array. It can display over 32,000 different colors and has a resolution of 1600 x 2500 pixels and 150 PPI.
       ACeP achieves a full color gamut, including all eight primary colors, using only colored pigments. The display utilizes a single layer of electrophoretic fluid, which is controlled using voltages compatible with commercial TFT backplanes. The fluid can be incorporated into either microcapsule or Microcup structures. The richness of the colors is achieved by having all the colored pigments in every picture element (pixel) rather than the side-by-side pixel colors achieved with a CFA. This eliminates the light attenuation, which can be quite significant. Like regular E Ink ePaper, ACeP maintains the ultra-low-power and paper-like readability under all lighting conditions.
       Sadly, this color e-paper will be temporarily unavailable. It is incompatible with Regal, the EPD controller that makes e-readers able to make page turns quick and eliminates ghosting.
That the e-reader industry is not innovating anymore. There simply isn’t any new tech that will offer new user experiences or dramatically increase performance. IMX 7 the new dual core processor from Freescale might improve things, but unless E-Ink releases a new waveform controller, performance might be negligible. This will prevent people from enjoying things like animated page turns, watching videos or playing casual games from companies like Rovio or All Slots Canadian Online Casino.

About E-paper display (EPD)

     About E-paper disply EPD: 
        E-Paper displays or electronic paper displays are display technologies that mimic the appearance of ordinary ink on paper. Unlike conventional backlit flat panel displays that emit light, electronic paper displays reflect light like paper. This may make them more comfortable to read, and provide a wider viewing angle than most light-emitting displays. The contrast ratio in electronic displays available as of 2008 approaches newspaper, and newly developed displays are slightly better. An ideal e-paper display can be read in direct sunlight without the image appearing to fade. Also, electronic paper technologies hold static text and images indefinitely without electricity. Flexible electronic paper uses plastic substrates and plastic electronics for the display backplane. 
       E-paper display technology mode is commonly referred to as “bi-stable” mode. What does this mean? Bi-stable means that the image on an e-paper display will be retained even when all power sources are removed. In practice, this means that the display consumes power only when refreshing. For example, when reading on an e-reader, there is no power consumption for the image to display. Power is only needed when turning from this page to a new page. This is most noticeable that when an e-reader goes into sleep mode yet there is still an image being displayed. By contrast, for a traditional LCD, the display is needed to be refreshing around 30X per second regardless of the whether anything new is being displayed. Bi-stability significantly reduces the power consumption of e-paper display and it is the key reason why e-readers have such long battery life. 
       E-paper displays are also referred to as “reflective displays.” In an LCD or “emissive display”, light from a backlight is projected through the display towards your eyes. For an E-paper display, no backlight is needed; rather, ambient light from the environment is reflected from the surface of the display to your eyes. For any reflective surface, the more ambient light, the brighter the display looks. This attribute mimics traditional ink and paper, and users of e-paper displays may be more comfortable when reading for long time. The backlight can also consume up to 40% of the power used in electronic product. Therefore, eliminating the need for a backlight significantly increases the battery life and increasing the experiencing of reading. 
       Applications of e-paper displays include electronic pricing labels (ESL) in retail shops, digital signage, timetables at bus stations, electronic billboards, mobile phone displays, electronic watch, electronic bracelet, electronic covers, electronic wallpaper and e-readers able to display digital versions of books, e-paper magazines and etc. 
       DKE EPD:
       DKE are now providing monochromatic EPD as well as 3 color (Black, White and Red) EPD for clients. Besides providing a range of standard dot matrix EPDs, DKE also provides customization services, mostly on Segmented EPD.
