E-paper digital badge with full of high-tech

The digital badge used by volunteers for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics features a 3.7-inch e-ink display that can show black, white and red.

Volunteers can also convert photos into vector images through a dedicated app. Not only can you set the image granularity and clarity at will, but you can also upload portrait photos and automatically identify cutout using the portrait cutout algorithm.

This electronic badge has no built-in battery and does not require wiring to charge. Volunteers can just refresh the badge through their phone's NFC function. Specifically, you only need to edit the picture and content in the dedicated mobile APP, and then tap the badge with the phone, and the picture of the badge can be refreshed successfully.

This is thanks to FMSC's single-chip passive NFC scheme. The FMSC chip is built into the badge to receive power and data information and present the data information on the ink screen. The NFC scheme is short-range wireless communication technology, which can power and transmit information to the chip through the NFC function.

Therefore, the user's mobile phone will power the chip through NFC when it is close to the badge, and transmit the picture information to the badge. The chip in the badge then refreshes the screen to convert the picture.
