October 20, 2022 – Dispelix, ColorChip, and Maradin have recently announced a partnership to further advance Laser Beam Scanning (LBS) solutions for augmented reality (AR) glasses. The collaboration integrates Dispelix’ diffractive waveguide displays, ColorChip’s PLC (Planar Light Circuit) beam combiner, and Maradin’s MEMS projection technology for LBS. All three companies will be participating in AWE Europe , which starts today in Lisbon, Portugal (October 20-21, 2022).
According to Dispelix, LBS technology offers some important advantages for AR glasses. These include the ability to create glasses with a smaller form factor that are lightweight and enabled by thin, full color waveguide displays with compact, low-power LBS projectors. Additional advantages include high brightness and color optimization via pixel-to-pixel control.
“Our partnership demonstrates the importance of working together and bringing the clear benefits of LBS technology closer to product and consumer readiness,” said Pia Harju, Vice President of Business Development at Dispelix. “These combined efforts will ensure optimal compatibility with consumer market requirements and result in brightness and contrast levels that will make all-day wearables a reality.”
“Together we are creating a clearer path to consumer ready and wearable AR glasses that are comfortable, bright, and light,” said Yigal Ezra, CEO of ColorChip. “Our collective team of experts are advancing the core technology components that will soon support an unlimited portfolio of products in the AR glasses space.”
“I am so excited that people will be able to experience AR glasses with an LBS display module based on the innovative collaboration between Dispelix, ColorChip, and Maradin,” said Matan Naftali, CEO of Maradin. “It will be interesting to see how product designers integrate this innovation into new products and make it available for all of us to use.”
