Epson announced a new controller-driver module for flexible E Ink-style displays based around Plastic Logic's OTFT arrays (shown in the video below). The new module (named S1D13541) supports E Ink displays 1 to 5 inches in size, and the maximum resolution is 480x854. It needs an external TFT gate driver.

The S1D13541 includes four display pipelines, which can be used in parallel to represent up to 16 levels of grey, 480 TFT source driver outputs, waveform memory, DC/DC boost circuit to generate "all required display voltages and a temperature sensor.
