Kirchheim and Teck, Germany:
Dialog Semiconductor and E Ink Corp. combined forces to define a specification for a new electrophoretic display driver. Their goal was lower power consumption and a high level of integration to reduce costs.

The fruits of their efforts resulted in Dialog, a mixed-signal ICs company, developing display drivers for consumer products using paper-thin displays from E Ink Corp. Products using the Dialog chip will launch in high volume later in 2006. Products made with E Ink's revolutionary electronic ink feature a paper-like high contrast appearance. These are suited to various applications, such as eBooks and cellphone screens.
