Compound Photonics US, a developer of compact, high-specification microdisplay solutions, has launched its CP2K234 series of Liquid Crystal on Silicon microdisplays targeting next generation augmented and mixed reality smart glasses and head-mounted / head-up display applications.
With its claimed “industry leading” 3.015μm pixel, native 2048x2048 pixel resolution and 1:1 aspect ratio, this 8.6mm (0.34in) diagonal display enables retina resolution (equivalent to 60 pixels/degree) when combined with next generation 50°+ wide field-of-view waveguides. The CP2K234 is available as either a polarization (amplitude) or phase (holographic) modulator.
“Based on a survey of our customers’ needs, we identified the requirement to fill a larger, symmetrical field of view with enough pixels to enable a more naturalistic viewing experience,” commented Ed Passon, SVP Marketing & Customer Engineering at Compound Photonics.
“The all-in-one Integrated Display Module package (measuring 11 x 11.5 x 3 mm) includes the complete display subsystem with MIPI input. The 2K2 IDM enables customers to build extremely compact systems to meet the form factors required for AR devices,” he added. “In addition, the inclusion of 64 steering pixels horizontally and vertically provides flexibility in design and compensation of human vision factors.”
