MANHASSET, N.Y. Kopin Corp. has introduced an active-matrix liquid crystal display (LCD)-based microdisplay with 800-x-600 pixel resolution in a 0.59-in. diagonal package the company said offers the highest resolution for its size.
Called the CyberDisplay SVGA, the microdisplay is built using nanotechnology and is based on scalable color filter microdisplay architecture from Kopin (Taunton, Mass.).
According to Kopin, the microdisplay is ideal for mobile devices requiring high resolution such as DVD players and games and is suited for wearable computer applications. In addition, the display will enable personal video eyewear products displaying 3-D stereoscopic video.
The microdisplay incorporates a patent-pending low-voltage architecture that allows interface voltage swings to be reduced to 3.3 volts for all digital control signals. The low-voltage architecture lowers the display's power consumption to 100 milliwatts. Each 15 x 15 um square full-color pixel comprises three primary-color dots, creating a total active array of 2,400-x-600 dots.
The CyberDisplay SVGA can display 16 million colors and offers a power-saving sleep mode.
