Laser Display Partnership
MicroVision Inc. of Redmond, Wash.,
and Pioneer Corp. of Kanagawa, Japan, will work together to develop display engines
and display engine subsystems for consumer and in-vehicle head-up displays using
MicroVision’s PicoP laser display technology, the companies announced recently.
Earlier in the year, the two companies executed a joint agreement to develop two
critical components of the PicoP display engine: a laser light source module using
direct red, blue and green lasers, and a separate display engine subsystem based
on the PicoP laser scanning technology. Both new components are key in the next-generation
PicoP display engine, which can be embedded in products that range from cell phones
and eyewear to airplanes and automobiles.
