Offering better comfort to users of point-and-shoot digital cameras, and new
designs for video glasses with the highest resolution ever, Microoled and the
CEA-Leti have targeted these
and many other potential applications with the announcement of the most efficient
silicon-based OLED microdisplay in the world.
Microoled and CEA-Leti announce the OLED microdisplay with the finest pixel
pitch (more than 1.7 million sub-pixels, 2 to 4 times more than the other emissive
technologies) and the lowest power consumption reported to date (4 times more
efficient). This very compact 0.38" WVGA microdisplay from Microoled is
based on the exclusive OLED technology licensed from Thomson and CEA, and integrates
the latest know-how and key technologies developed by the teams of Microoled
and CEA-Leti. This display is perfectly suited for camcorder and digital still
camera eye-pieces as well as for video or interactive eyeglasses.
An efficient collaboration
"This new achievement in the world of microdisplay opens the door for
high picture quality electronic viewfinders for cameras, but also enables the
market of high definition video eyeglasses for mobile video applications. We
are very satisfied with the close collaboration of CEA-LETI, with which we succeeded
to develop this highly integrated display with extremely low power consumption",
said Eric Marcellin-Dibon CEO and cofounder of Microoled.
"Marrying the capabilities of CMOS and the flexibility of OLED offers
a unique route to microdisplays with unequalled resolution and brightness. We
foresee a tremendous potential of applications for theses devices. The high
resolution and the low power consumption makes it perfect for a large set of
nomadic products", said Laurent Malier CEO of CEA-Leti.
