iView Limited has selected Displaytech’s new generation LightView LDP-SVGA micro display for their Pico-projector that will be demonstrated at CES’ (News - Alert)08.

Displaytech says it improves display-based products by providing cost-advantaged microdisplays that deliver brilliant, real-life, digital images and enable the creation of next-generation consumer electronics and data storage products.

Displaytech’s Ferroelectric Liquid Crystal on Silicon (FLCOS) technology enables light switching at speeds 100 times faster than other liquid crystals, making possible the creation of microdisplays that deliver unsurpassed image resolution, power efficiency and ease of manufacturability, according to the company.

“We are very happy with the high image resolution, compact form factor, and vivid colors that can be achieved by our Pico-projector using Displaytech’s FLCOS microdisplay”, iView CEO, Dr. Steve Yeung said in a press release. “We are very confident that the combined effort between the two companies will result in commercialization of the technology in 2008.

Displaytech’s Ferroelectric liquid-crystal-on-silicon (FLCOS) technology that gives iView a projector with unsurpassed image resolution, power efficiency and compact form factor is advantaged in its compact size, extremely low power consumption at less than 100mw, and best performance in terms of lumen per watt which enables Pico-projector design compact and bright with minimum power, said Yeung.

Founded in 1985, Displaytech has shipped over 14-million devices to some of the world’s premier consumer electronics companies. Displaytech’s customers include JVC, Kodak, Olympus, Hitachi (News - Alert), Konica Minolta, Kyocera and Hewlett-Packard.

“We are very excited that iView selected our microdisplay for their Pico-projector,” said Displaytech CEO, Richard Barton. “Displaytech’s microdisplay performance and iView’s proprietary optical design are combined to create a Pico-projector which will be embedded into cell phone and other mobile communication devices.”
