2K 0.94″ M180 FLCoS Display

The 2K (2048 x 2048 pixels) reflective ferroelectric liquid crystal on silicon (FLCoS) is a digitally-controlled microdisplay for binary amplitude modulation suitable for imaging or projection. It is specifically designed to meet the demands of high-resolution and high-fidelity imaging, from medical imaging to structured light projection for 3D optical metrology.

The microdisplay is an electro-optical device that takes a 2D 1-bit binary array as its input and maps it to its corresponding pixel array. Each pixel can be “on” or “off” according to the value of the corresponding input bit.

Interfacing the 2K with the two established board variants (the R10 for video or the R11 for memory-based applications) will ensure optimal usability ranging from medical imaging to structured light projection for 3D optical metrology.

The microdisplay also works at large angles of incidence, making it an ideal choice for off-axis projection systems using the Scheimpflug condition. The achievable contrast ratio can be >1000:1 depending on the optical system parameters such as f/# of illumination, polarizing component selection, and inter-display alignment.

No sub-pixels, customizable color gamut, no image burn-in of static content, and fast refresh make the 2K microdisplay particularly suitable for applications requiring high fidelity images. Optional ancillaries include an LED driver and a low profile RGB LED illuminator. In addition, our highly experienced engineering support will shorten your design-in time.

R10 Interface

R10 is a microdisplay and spatial light modulator (SLM) based on ferroelectric liquid crystal on silicon (FLCoS) technology for fast amplitude or phase modulation of light. It enables immersive (>100°) Wide Field of View (WFOV) head-mounted display systems to be realized without resolvable pixel structure. Color Calibration functionality allows users to realize a standard color space easily on the display.

R11 Interface

The R11 spatial light modulator (SLM) solution is specifically designed to meet the demands of customers who require the highest-resolution SLMs. It is a fast-switching, all-digital, high-performance reflective SLM solution which features an industry-proven 3.1 MPixel Time Domain ImagingTM display combined with an application-specific non-video display interface.
