E Ink Holdings (E Ink), producer of electronic paper and LCD technologies, has signed an agreement to buy shares of SiPix Technology Inc. (STI) and its wholly owned subsidiary SiPix Imaging Inc. (SII), maker of electronic paper displays.

SiPix, based in California and Taiwan, makes micro-cup technology-based electrophoretic displays.

The combined company will offer a vast portfolio of ePaper products that will allow it to expand its existing markets and diversify into newer applications.

Both E Ink and SiPix’s customers will now have a bigger portfolio of products and technologies to choose from with a larger global network of offices to support customers in different geographies. With this purchase, E Ink will have the widest offerings of ePaper technologies, a larger set of products and a stronger patent portfolio.
