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.
