The battle for dominance in the burgeoning digital book market is heating up, putting the spotlight on power management for portable readers. E Ink Corp., which supplies electronic paper displays for many e-readers including Amazon's Kindleâ¢ and Sony's Reader, is teaming up with Marvell Technology Group Ltd. to trim power consumption and size. E Ink is using Marvell's ARMADA 166E application processor, which extends battery life with a zero power hibernation mode. The System-on-Chip also provides a higher level of integration than E Ink had before, helping it make thinner, lighter devices.
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
