Summary:
Offering better comfort to users of point-and-shoot digital cameras, and new designs for video glasses with the highest resolution ever, Microoled and the CEA-Leti have targeted these and many other potential applications with the announcement of the most efficient silicon-based OLED microdisplay in the world.

Offering better comfort to users of point-and-shoot digital cameras, and new designs for video glasses with the highest resolution ever, Microoled and the CEA-Leti have targeted these and many other potential applications with the announcement of the most efficient silicon-based OLED microdisplay in the world.

Microoled and CEA-Leti announce the OLED microdisplay with the finest pixel pitch (more than 1.7 million sub-pixels, 2 to 4 times more than the other emissive technologies) and the lowest power consumption reported to date (4 times more efficient). This very compact 0.38” WVGA microdisplay from Microoled is based on the exclusive OLED technology licensed from Thomson and CEA, and integrates the latest know-how and key technologies developed by the teams of Microoled and CEA-Leti. This display is perfectly suited for camcorder and digital still camera eye-pieces as well as for video or interactive eyeglasses.

“This new achievement in the world of microdisplay opens the door for high picture quality electronic viewfinders for cameras, but also enables the market of high definition video eyeglasses for mobile video applications. We are very satisfied with the close collaboration of CEA-LETI, with which we succeeded to develop this highly integrated display with extremely low power consumption”, said Eric Marcellin-Dibon CEO and cofounder of Microoled.

“Marrying the capabilities of CMOS and the flexibility of OLED offers a unique route to microdisplays with unequalled resolution and brightness. We foresee a tremendous potential of applications for theses devices. The high resolution and the low power consumption makes it perfect for a large set of nomadic products”, said Laurent Malier CEO of CEA-Leti.
