E-Reader Device

EDALITY developed from scratch an electronic board for a consumer e-reader device with very tight mechanical restrictions.

Our engineering team helped the customer to develop a E-Reader equipped with the touch screen Wacom. The E-Reader supports specialized informational feeds NewspaperDirect.

The reader got a software package supporting all the traditional features typical for high-end readers, like adjustable text size and portrait / landscape orientation.
