January 27, 2012 — Near-eye micro-display maker MicroOLED introduced a 5.4-million-pixel-density, 0.61"-diagonal, low-power-consumption organic light-emitting diode (OLED) microdisplay on silicon.
The ultra-compact 5.4 million-pixel microdisplay with a sub-pixel pitch of 4.7µm2 doubles the pixel density of comparable products, MicroOLED reports. The company eliminates the gap between pixels, which means no black matrix. This increases image quality to levels suitable for defense, medical, and professional camera applications. High contrast (maximum 100,000:1) and high uniformity (96%) also generate high picture quality. The micro-display can operate on as low as 0.2W, even when the fully digital video input is embedded.
"The current trend in replacing optics with electronics components fits excellently with our ability to produce this exceptional picture quality in miniature format," said Eric Marcellin-Dibon, CEO of MicroOLED. It can be used in imaging applications including medical head-mounted displays, professional cameras, night-vision googles for military apps, and more.
The 5.4 million-pixel density microdisplay comes in full color (16 million colors), SXGA or monochrome formats (2,560 by 2,048 pixels), both with digital video input.
MicroOLED makes highly power-efficient micro-displays with superior image quality for mobile near-to-eye viewing devices used by consumers, medical professionals, and the defense and security industry. MicroOLED is a privately held company with headquarters, R&D and a new 300,000-unit production facility located in Grenoble, a renowned center of excellence in France for chipset and nanotechnology development. The company is led by a management team highly experienced in advanced technologies, including several years’ research & development in OLED technology from CEA-LETI, a leading European micro-and nanotechnology research center.
