LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) is a reflective microdisplay technology based on a silicon backplane.
LCOS technology is a powerful combination of two well-developed technologies: IC/CMOS and Liquid Crystal (LC). LCOS has a significant advantage in high-end projection applications due to the maturity and potential of both IC/CMOS and LC technologies.
Using standard CMOS processes, microdisplays with extremely small pixels, high fill factor (pixel aperture ratio) and low fabrication costs can be realized.
LCOS Display Applications
HOLOEYE is focussing on high demanding industrial imaging applications which have requirements beyond standard projection systems:
- Industrial Projection
- Fringe/Pattern Projection
- Rapid Prototyping
- Industrial Imaging
- HUDs and HMDs
- High resolution NTE/EVF systems
- AR, VR applications
LCOS Projection Developer Kits
HOLOEYE offers monochromatic and color field sequential microdisplays. For single panel color projection a color field sequential (CFS) display addresses three monochromatic images corresponding to the primary colors (RGB) in a repetitive sequence and is illuminated by a triggered light source.
For proof of concept and small volume applications, standard evaluation developer Kits are available for the following LCOS microdisplays:
