|What is CyberDisplay?||LV Architecture||MVA Technology|
|Kopin's Cyberdisplay® products are the world's only transmissive liquid crystal displays (LCD) that use high-performance single-crystal silicon transistors. To make the transmissive display from opaque silicon, Kopin uses its patented lift-off process to transfer a very thin IC layer onto a glass plate.|
Kopin's patented lift-off process
The use of high-performance single-crystal silicon transistors enables the CyberDisplay to have the smallest pixel size in the industry. The typical pixel size is 15 µm square, much smaller than those for LCD TVs or cell phone displays that use amorphous or poly-silicon transistors. The result is the smallest display for the resolution, which is highly desirable for portable near-eye applications. The high-resolution image is magnified by optical lenses to provide the viewer with a large-size TV viewing experience.
As shown in the cross-sectional view, the CyberDisplay LCD uses the industry-standard color filter technology, with each full-color pixel divided into red, green, and blue color dots. Since the LCD is a non-emissive device, a backlight is required to show the image. The light transmission through each color dot is independently controlled by each pixel electrode to produce the full color gamut.
