    Direct Green Laser Price

    did anyone else catch what AT said about DGL price?
    he said something to the effect of, "with the SHOW WX using synthetic lasers that cost over 100$ a piece, we dont have that problem anymore with direct prices much lower"

      Alik during the CC...

      "as many of you are aware the green laser SUPPLY ISSUE that hindered us in the past has been greatly AL
      LEVIATED in the SECOND HALF OF LAST YEAR after we first launched product with Pioneer and today GLOBAL OEMs SEE A PATH TO high volume LOW COST GREEN LASER SOLUTION from several reputable sources. Now that the green laser supply is being addressed"

      "we were not making money because each green laser cost us more than a hundred dollars so this year you know most of the revenues comprised of the next generation technology that is built around Direct Green laser that is much more COST EFFECTIVE"

      So what does COST EFFECTIVE mean? Is that the PATH towards LOW COST DGL SOLUTION Alik spoke about in the CC? Is that why MVIS is looking to get to 50 lumens that coincidentally is the lumen level Intersil said where lasers are

      From Intersil... As deployment volumes increase along with the demand for higher brightness systems, the cost curves for direct laser systems will go down much faster. For those product manufacturers looking at 2-4 year time horizons, the cost/performance advantages of laser-based systems can be much more compelling then the LED based system"

      "The LED design approach illustrated in Figure 2 is optimized to provide the smallest
      electronics footprint for a Pico projector, with low power requirements as well as the
      lowest available BOM cost. The electronics footprint is 1.7”x 2.0” for accessory
      applications and can be designed to less than 1.5”x1.0” typical footprint for embedded
      applications.
      The optical engine requires only 1W of electrical power for 6 lumens output, and offers a
      total system power budget of less than 1W. The design is operated from a battery with a
      1700mA capacity or by an external AC wall adaptor.
      The electronics system is capable of driving 1.5A current for a brighter projected image;
      up to 10lumens can be achieved. No active cooling method is required. BOM cost can
      run from less than $50 depending on application type and on production volumes.

      • hey dingleberry...you just disproved your own argument...

        Nichia has had their own dgl out for more than a year

        you may need to be dragged kicking and screaming to the realization that your short position (or whatever your motivation is) is in deep trouble

        the fact that you have been such a pompass #$%$ here on this board will make your specticle fun to watch though

      • So it seems at higher lumens lasers have advantages in efficiency over LEDs but PRESENTLY LEDs are far cheaper.

    • dgls are here to stay

    • All this talk about cheap dgl's is making me feel, well, cheap :)
      Isn't that what the birdy is saying these days? "Cheap, cheap, cheap!"

    • Gand, there was so much between the lines positive, including what you refer to in dgl, the stress on unmatched innovation, etcetcetc, I almost felt sorry for Alex. He sounded like he was trying to keep a Rubbermaid cover on a volcano. Note, none of the clowns here even mocked his cough, which btw didn't exist.
      I believe the results are on the way.
      Note to TAP, don't bother responding. You're way out of your league now. Stick with NOK. Hate is wasting you here.

    • He also said that the OEMs now see a path for DGL's from several suppliers that will be high volume and low cost .

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
