Microvision, a Redmond, Wash., maker of light-scanning technologies for display and imaging products, announced today it has entered into a joint development agreement to use Microvision’s integrated photonics module (IPM) designs for high-volume manufacturing. The IPM is a tiny display engine suitable for a variety of display applications, including ultraminiature laser projectors for mobile phones, laptops and DVD players; other applications include lightweight color eyewear and heads-up displays for automobiles and airplanes. Target customers are consumer electronics OEMs and Tier 1 automotive suppliers. Microvision announced a similar agreement with another manufacturer in November. “To be successful long-term, it is important to have at least two reliable sources of development and potential supply for our display engine, because we intend to serve several large commercial markets with multiple prospective global OEMs,” said Alexander Tokman, president and CEO of Microvision.
