Arinc Incorporated today introduced the eFlyBook, a self-powered electronic library that stores and displays enroute charts and other essential documents on a glare-free screen of "electronic paper."

Unlike laptop screens, the eFlyBook display remains sharp, clear, and legible under all cockpit lighting--even direct sunlight. Based on new "persistent display" technology, the screen requires very little power and no backlighting. The display can run for several days on a single charge. eFlyBook takes advantage of the revolutionary "iLiad" eReader developed and manufactured by iRex Technologies of the Netherlands, a spin-off of Royal Philips Electronics of the Netherlands.

The pencil-thin Arinc eFlyBook is smaller, lighter and less expensive than conventional laptops and tablet PC's. It features easily accessible memory for user-installed documents in multiple formats via a PC-USB connection. It also provides for the use of SD, CF and USB memory cards and devices. A simple and intuitive stylus-based screen interface retrieves and displays documents easily. The Electronic Paper Display (EPD) also captures and stores handwritten notes using the stylus. The portable eFlyBook unit measures about 1/2 x 6 x 9 inches, and is priced below $1100.
