Analyst Comment

einkAt the Electronica show this week, a new memory in pixel reflective display from JDI was being shown. We’ll have more in next week’s report, but it highlights the interest that JDI has in low power and reflective display technology. The company told us at SID that it had seen the success that E Ink was having in applications that need low power. (JDI Impresses with Low Power and High Resolution) BR
