LCOS panel suits next-gen glasses

Omnivision has announced a new 648p single-chip liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) panel for next-generation augmented reality, extended reality and mixed reality glasses and head-mounted displays. The OP03011 LCOS panel features 3.8µm pixels in one of the world’s smallest 0.14in optical formats. The low-power, lightweight design is ideal for next-generation glasses that can be worn 24/7.

Omnivision’s marketing director for the IoT and emerging segment, Devang Patel, said: “While the market for AR glasses is still in its infancy, there is growing interest among consumers. This has led OEMs to design more functionality into slim, fashionable designs that consume very little power and are lightweight, allowing them to be worn nearly 24/7.

“The OP03011 is the only single-chip solution that is designed in an ultra-compact format for applications requiring a smaller field of view and lower resolution, making it well suited for some of the sleekest, most innovatively designed AR glasses.”
