Aveso Launches Primero 6|7 Flexible Display Module

Flexible Display Designed Specifically to Withstand Hot Lamination Paves Way for Widespread Production of Electronic Display Cards

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - October 30, 2007) - Aveso, Inc., the leading provider of flexible displays for high-volume, cost-sensitive applications, today announced the commercial launch of its Primero™ line of flexible numeric display modules. The company's novel display products are specifically designed to withstand the extreme temperatures and pressures used to produce plastic cards. Aveso displays can be dropped into card manufacturing processes and installed equipment used by over 95 percent of the industry, paving the way for widespread manufacturability of electronic display cards.

Dennis Brestovansky, President and CEO of Aveso, Inc., said, "Global interest in display card products is growing very rapidly for applications such as one time password generators that increase the security of online banking transactions and e-commerce purchases, and protect enterprise and other confidential data. Our display technology enables production of a display card that meets the price, reliability and manufacturing scale for which the market has long been waiting."

Aveso's Primero 6|7™ product is a 6 digit, 7 segment flexible display that is well-suited for applications involving harsh manufacturing environments or operating conditions. A leading application is One Time Password (OTP) cards that place token functionality in a convenient payment card form factor. The product features an embedded microprocessor and can support both time and event-based algorithms. The versatile display is also designed to support future display card applications, including payment, stored value and transit cards that provide the consumer with immediate access to available credit, remaining balances and recent transaction information.

Aveso's high contrast, paper-thin displays are based on a patented electro-active ink technology that makes it possible to fabricate and rapidly scale electronic displays. Aveso's low voltage operation allows for display drive code to be loaded onto customer-specific silicon or low-cost, general purpose microprocessors. The displays can also be designed to be driven via Radio Frequency (RF) energy for contactless applications.
