    Wafer positioning MEMS micro projector phone next year MWC volley

    Wafer positioning MEMS micro projector phone next year MWC volley

    2012/12/10 Huang Yaowei

    Micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) micro projector phone at the 2013 Mobile World Congress (MWC) massive appearance. Wafer supplier with the optical assembly plant under full sprint, the embedded MEMS laser micro projector optical scanning chip is expected to be put into operation next year, the light machine engine assembly technology has become more mature, including resolution, brightness and sizes are comprehensive upgrade to attract a number of top-tier handset brand factory, the competing import product design, R & D results and plans to show in next year's MWC.

    Advanced micro systems, general manager of Hong Changli pointed out, another micro-projection technology - DLP, improve resolution supports the MEMS scanning chip size also followed enlarge, the development of embedded programs there are also many challenges.
    Hongchang Li, general manager of Advanced Micro system, said that the company has a small amount of shipments of MEMS scanning chip, used in the development of stand-alone or mobile device plug-MEMS laser micro projector; the third quarter of 2013 is expected to further volume embedded MEMS following laser micro projector scanning chip, with a dedicated image processor provides complete chipset solutions, and to create a resolution of 720p, volume 2 cc (cm3), brightness of 20 to 25 lumens (lm) and the power consumption is only 1.2 to 1.5 watts (W) embedded MEMS micro projector ray machine, the fight for mobile devices built-in opportunities.

    Similarly, STMicroelectronics is acquisitions bTendo, reinforcing laser projection light machine technology, also further enshrined in the MEMS scanning chip development blueprint. Wang Jiayu, the STMicroelectronics technical marketing manager, pointed out that the company used the exclusive Flying Spot embedded micro projector design architecture, has been to create an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) and introduced a reference design, to relieve the burden of system plant developed.

    The third quarter of 2013, STMicroelectronics will also release the upgrade program, the resolution will be expanded to 1,080 p, brightness up to 25 lumens of light machine size will also be reduced to 1.5 cc, height 5 millimeters (mm) or less, mobile device developers have more design space.

    With the wafer with light machine engine technology in place, the front-line phone brand factory is in full swing into product design; especially in Japan, South Korea and mainland China, the most active industry has initially planning a big show in the the MWC exhibition in 2013, built-in MEMS micro projector enabled mobile phone. Hongchang Li would not hesitate to say, is really a lot of phone original equipment manufacturer (OEM) open embedded micro projector specifications, thus attracting many MEMS scanning chip operators to grab a single, or even two Chinese mainland to new entrants are also eager.

    For the card bit early market, Advanced Micro systems are gradually expand wafer capacity, and stepped up the deployment of embedded MEMS scanning mirror (Scanning Mirror) driver IC and light machine design patent for war. Hong Changli mobile device screen resolution is rising, and thin and power consumption requirements are very strict, will be embedded MEMS laser micro projector brings many challenges, including the size of the MEMS scanning chip performance, light machine and lumens per watt performance, are the focus on technological breakthroughs and the keys to victory, and therefore subject to the early commencement of the patent layout.

    Monolithic two-dimensional MEMS scanning mirror in on miniature light machine size, Advanced Micro system, can be more semi competitors use two MEMS scanning mirror are responsible for X, Y axis pixel capture program more space-saving. Hong Changli stressed, single-chip solutions will also help to achieve the internal chip integration of MEMS micro projector, the company has plans to complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) in 2014 / MEMS wafer level packaging technology and MEMS scanning chip become a single-chip driver IC, when the size of the light machine will drop substantially.

    Although the embedded MEMS laser micro projector technology Diego breakthrough However, the high prices, such as the thorn in the side, short of converting a commercial mobile phone market. Wang Jiayu green laser production capacity, resulting in about 50% of the total embedded micro projector cost-ray machines can not cut prices the entire module point of view 30 to $ 40, and will affect the pace of development of the mobile phones embedded micro projector.

    In addition, between the laser beam MEMS scanning mirror reflection of the light source, will also produce the image distortion problem, the introduction of more high-frequency control components or optical compensation techniques to improve and elevate the cost of technology investment. Therefore, Hong Changli 2013 first half of the manufacturers will launch stand-alone or mobile phone plug MEMS micro projector product-based, and further development of the built-in samples of the function phones; pending the second half of the MEMS micro-projection technology is more mature and develop economies of scale After the overall embedded MEMS laser micro projector shipments will gradually improve.

    • This stands out the most to me:

      "The third quarter of 2013, STMicroelectronics will also release the upgrade program, the resolution will be expanded to 1,080 p, brightness up to 25 lumens of light machine size will also be reduced to 1.5 cc, height 5 millimeters (mm) or less, mobile device developers have more design space."

      Does STMicroelectronics have the same eye safety concerns that MVIS has (being limited to 15-20 Lumens for class II eye safety)

      Sentiment: Sell

    • I must have missed the part where this article has any connection to Microvision.

        Green laser diode production is cutting edge MEMS micro projector

        "2011/12/19 Huang Yaowei

        Micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) development of micro-projector is expected to significantly leap forward. In particular, the direct radiation in the green laser diode (Direct-emitting Green Laser Diode) in the first half of the amount of post-2012, will enable MEMS laser micro-projector-ray machines, break through the use of synthetic green technology, size limits, and further so that the thickness of miniature to 7 mm below, and to achieve high-resolution projection effects, thereby enhancing the mobile device manufacturers will import and speed."

        Hongchang Li, general manager, said Advanced Micro Systems, 2012 OSRAM (OSRAM), EpiCrystal and Corning (Corning) of green laser diodes mass production, the bound to bring more light, higher resolution and energy efficiency, and lower development costs for MEMS laser micro-projectors come out. Thus, MEMS laser micro-projectors that can meet the import smart phones, tablet PCs and other products of the size and performance requirements, to attract mobile device manufacturers.

        In fact, in addition to MEMS laser micro-projectors, the digital light processing (DLP) and LCOS (LCoS) technology camp also aggressively develop the mobile market, competition is increasingly intense; However, micro-projectors embedded in mobile devices, confidential, not only must consider the module size, projection resolution is a major key.

        Hongchang Li pointed out that there are a considerable focus on the mobile device display quality, in order to link the user experience, resolution of the projector along with rising demands, support SVGA (800 × 600) has become a basic requirement, even with the original equipment manufacturer manufacturer (OEM) out 720p (1,280 × 720) size; obvious micro-projector for both small size and high resolution in order to enter the mobile market.

        Hong Changli further analysis, compared to DLP and LCoS technology in improving the resolution of the difficult challenges faced when, MEMS laser micro-projectors in the green laser diode make up the technology gap, the high resolution and has been able to both light the benefits of size, will inspire the industry and its mobile device market confidence after the great potential of development.

        In fact, breaking the green laser diode technology bottleneck, has been encouraging both the MEMS micro-projector manufacturers increase its investment, and attracted many OEM and module factory attention, period to catch the mobile devices into micro-projection function boom, thus stimulating the growth of the company's revenue next year.

        Hongchang Li said, the world's leading projector, MEMS laser micro-businesses - Microvision, the second half of 2012 has been planning the use of red, blue, green laser diode to create the thickness of 7 mm below the optical drive engines, will also pushing up the MEMS scanning mirror themselves freely 720p resolution level, the period of both high-resolution, thin size of the dual advantage, fought over the mobile device built-in micro projector features business pie.

      The time is right to short MVIS

      MVIS not even a blip on AAPL 's radar. Electronics are getting cheaper. An embedded projector is not cost effective.

      tg_trading was wrong. Looks like we'll be getting an embedded projector next year.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
