Who we are ?

Since 1996,

Our Present & CEO George Ou sensed the trend of multi-application cards and put together a team to develop Multi-Component Cards (MCC) for the project for Taiwan National ID Cards. From 1996 to 2001, the team developed numerous prototypes of MCC with glass LCD and plastic LCD. However, it could not be commercialized due to low impact resistance, high power consumption and display thickness.

In 2002, SmartDisplayer Technology was founded and started to develop EPM using EPD for smart card applications. We encountered many technological limitations and barriers along the way and managed to overcome these challenges.

In 2005, we completed the world's first viable display module (EPM & BDM) for ISO card applications.
