eMagin logo neweMaginn introduced new low-power/high-contrast 0.5" diagonal VGA OLED-XL microdisplays that feature 15-micron pixels, 10,000:1 contrast ratio, a coltage drive pixel approach and eMagin's True Black technology that uses less than 60mW (which is less than half of the requirement for eMagin's SVGA+ OLED-XL microdisplays). eMagin says that the new display is useful for military, industrial and commercial applications (including thermal weapon sights, laser target designators, and industrial thermal imaging cameras).

The new microdisplays use pulse width modulation (PWM) pixel hold times (a first time for eMagin) to virtually eliminate motion artifacts in video imagery, with the extra benefit of providing better dimming range and gray level response for low light and night vision applications.

The new microdisplay is available now in monochrome white and full color. Monochrome green and monochrome yellow versions will follow later in 2011.
