eMagin Corporation will begin taking orders for its SVGA 3DS OLED-XL microdisplay at next week’s Night Vision Conference in Washington, D,C. The company expects to begin shipping the product in the first quarter of 2008.
The SVGA-3DS microdisplay offers both analog and digital signal processing in a compact display (0.44-inch) with greater power efficiency. This high-density OLED-on-silicon microdisplay promises an affordable, easy-to-integrate solution for many virtual imaging systems. eMagin’s SVGA-3DS microdisplays eliminate the need for extra circuitry and components while allowing for a smaller display module design with increased functionality, with no increase in power consumption.
Specific improvements include increased pixel uniformity, improved color gamut, on-chip temperature sensor and compensation, and compatibility with both analog RGB and digital video signals. The 800 x 600-pixel array comprises triads of vertical sub-pixels stacked side by side to make up each 11.1 x 11.1-micrometer color pixel. Versatile timing controls accommodate a variety of video formats. On-board circuitry ensures consistent color and brightness over a wide range of operating temperatures.
