Opnext Ships LDs to Microvision
Optical modules and components maker Opnext Inc. of Fremont, Calif., has begun shipping red laser diodes to Redmond, Wash.-based Microvision for its PicoP® laser projection technology, the company announced this week. Potential applications for the technology include ultraminiature displays for embedded or accessory applications for mobile phones, personal media players, laptops and future wearable display devices. Laser-based microprojectors have a unique combination of features that are optimal for mobile device users, including infinite focus, rich color, and high contrast and resolution. Opnext said its red laser diode line plays an important role in this rapidly emerging mobile display market.
