Micron brings single-chip microdisplay panel

Micron Technology, a provider of semiconductor solutions, released a new microdisplay panel leveraging technology from Displaytech.

By CBR Staff Writer

The FLCOS microdisplay technology of Displaytech projects highly saturated, crisp images. The single-chip panel is a wide-screen quarter VGA (WQVGA) microdisplay solution designed for applications such as head-mounted display products and embedded cell phone projectors.

At the heart of the new panel is ferroelectric liquid crystal on silicon (FLCOS) technology that delivers quality image and color fidelity when compared to microdisplay technologies. FLCOS microdisplay technology has a switching speed which is more than 100 times faster than traditional LCOS technology.

When compared to micromirror technology, FLCOS display technology allows for an integrated microdisplay solution, combining the display panel, memory, image processing and light driver control into one chip.

Bruce Spenner, director of microdisplay marketing for Micron, said: “Size, power and image quality are the leading design criteria for microdisplay panels in portable applications, all of which Micron can provide with its portfolio of FLCOS solutions.”
