Miniature near-eye OLED displays provide sharp images even in low light
Subs & Systems
Astute has announced the signing of a worldwide franchise agreement with
high-definition low-power OLED display specialist MICROOLED. The OLED
displays target near-eye display (NED) applications such as video glasses,
head-mounted sports devices, camera viewfinders, medical applications and
many other professional devices. MICROOLED's low voltage device architecture
features a unique sub-pixel arrangement resulting in highest pixel density
and lowest power.
The display's design provides ultra-high contrast, ensuring 'black is black'
which is essential for high image quality. Unlike other displays, no 'grid
matrix' is visible, further improving resolution, and the manufacturing
technology enables a wide viewing angle with no loss in contrast or changes
in colour. Power consumption is typically two or three times less than
competing products extending battery life, and response time is under one
microsecond, ensuring blur-free images, even of fast-moving objects, says
Commenting, Mike Blee, marketing manager, Astute Electronics, said: "We are
extremely excited to be able to bring these products to the worldwide
market. Head-mounted displays, high-end microscopes, electronic viewfinders,
augmented reality applications, firemen's helmets - there are so many
applications that will benefit from the technology. Although these displays
require a very high level of technical support to design-in, we have already
identified two projects within our customer base and have evaluation kits
which demonstrate this technology extremely well."
