E Ink Partners with Freescale

10/20/09

In a joint announcement, Austin, TX-based Freescale Semiconductor and Cambridge, MA-based E Ink–which makes the “electronic ink” displays used in the Amazon Kindle, the Sony Reader, and other e-book devices—said today they will work together to integrate the electronics that control E Ink’s displays with Freescale’s MX processors to create a single “system on a chip” for future e-reading devices. The collaboration “will enable several new markets, including e-newspapers and e-textbooks,” E Ink vice president of marketing Sriram Peruvemba said in the announcement.
