LCOS Panel is designed for mobile projection applications.

Press Release Summary:



Based on 8.8 micron pixel in array with resolution of 864 x 600 pixels, ASI1300 series liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) panel is large enough to couple with LED light sources and small enough to meet demands of compact projection systems for mobile applications. Customers can use this single panel color field sequential device in SVGA mode, with diagonal of 0.346 in., and WVGA mode, with diagonal of 0.339 in.

Aurora Systems Announces the Introduction of a New LCOS Panel for Mobile Viewing Market



SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 20 -- Aurora Systems Incorporated announced today the introduction of a new line of liquid crystal on silicon panel designed for mobile projection applications.

The new ASI1300 series product is a single panel color field sequential device, based on an 8.8 micron pixel in an array with a resolution of 864 x 600 pixels. This design will enable customers to use it in either an SVGA mode, with a diagonal of 0.346" and a WVGA mode, with a diagonal of 0.339".

"The ASI1300 series panel has been designed to slot into the Aurora product range between our existing 0.55" WXGA device and the 0.177" VGA device. The new panel is large enough to couple well with LED light sources, yet small enough to meet the demands of compact projection systems for mobile applications," said Jeffrey Saake, CEO and President of Aurora Systems. "Further, the relatively high resolution of this small device, combined with continuing improvements in LED technology, opens up the opportunity for customers to create low cost companion projectors with high optical output."

The ASI1300 series continues to build on Aurora's all-digital technology and core competence in small pixel design. It shares the same architecture as Aurora's existing 0.177" ASI1000 series product and so both panels share a common driver chip for low power, compact projection applications.
