Title: Electrophoresis device and electronic apparatus

Abstract: An electrophoresis device includes a translucent first substrate having a first electrode on one surface thereof; a second substrate having a second electrode on one surface thereof, and disposed to face the first substrate such that a protruding portion which does not overlap the first substrate in a substrate thickness direction is ensured at one side of the second substrate; a wiring pattern electrically connected to the second electrode via a connector passing through the second substrate, and provided on the other surface of the second substrate such that it extends to the protruding portion of the second substrate; an electrophoretic layer interposed between the first electrode and the second electrode; a translucent first moistureproof film having a portion contacting the other surface of the first substrate and a surplus portion disposed around the portion; and a second moistureproof film having a portion contacting the other surface of the second substrate and a surplus portion disposed around the portion and provided such that at least a portion of the protruding portion of the second substrate is exposed. Electrical connection between the wiring pattern and an external device is established at a place where the protruding portion of the second substrate is exposed.
