Extending battery life is critical for any wearable headset. While our display panels consume very low power (10 – 30 mW depending on the display resolution) thanks to Kopin’s patented low voltage and clock driverless architectures, our very low power driver ASIC also reduce the overall display system power. Kopin offers ASIC solutions with all of its displays to provide easier integration for its customers.
Most of the power consumption of the driver ASIC is in the video amplifiers and digital-to-analog converters (DACs). Incorporating patent-pending DAC circuits, Kopin’s ASIC consume less than half the power of the conventional method.
Kopin’s subsidiary, e-MDT America, has been a leader in low-power analog/digital circuit designs. e-MDT America specializes in designing ultra-low-power driver integrated circuits (ICs) and backplanes for many kinds of displays, including reflective Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCOS) displays.
