Profile: eMagin Corp (EMAN.A)
22 Apr 2014
eMagin Corporation (eMagin) is engaged in the manufacture of microdisplays using OLED (organic light emitting diode) technology. The Company designs , develop, manufacture, and market OLED on silicon microdisplays, virtual imaging products, which utilizes OLED microdisplays and related products. The Company also performs research in the OLED field. The Company's virtual imaging products integrate OLED technology with silicon chips to produce high-resolution microdisplays smaller than one-inch diagonally, which when viewed through a magnifier, create virtual images that appear comparable in size to that of a computer monitor or a large-screen television. The Company's products enable the Company's original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers to develop and market electronic products, especially products that are mobile and portable. In April 2011, the Company added VGA OLED-XL microdisplay to its product line.
Using the Company's active matrix OLED technology, many computer and electronic system functions can be built directly into the OLED microdisplay silicon backplane, resulting in compact, high resolution, power efficient systems. The Company offers its products to OEMs and other buyers as both separate components, integrated bundles coupled with its own optics, or full systems. The Company also offers engineering support to enable customers to integrate its products into their own product development programs and offer design of customized displays with resolutions or features to meet special customer requirements.
SVGA+OLED Microdisplay Series
The Company’s 0.62 inch diagonal microdisplay has a resolution of 852x600 triad pixels (1.53 million picture elements). The display also has an internal NTSC monochrome video decoder for low power night vision systems. SVGA+ Rev3 OLED-XL microdisplay is a power efficient OLED display solution for near-eye personal viewer applications which, uses less than 115 megawatt power in monochrome, such as for thermal imaging applications, and lower than 175 megawatt for full color video.
The Company’s SXGA OLED microdisplay with a 0.77 inch diagonal active area provides 3,932,160 sub-pixels in an active area. The display’s triad pixel array consists triads of vertical sub-pixels stacked side by side to make up each 12 x 12 millimeter color pixel. The SXGA OLED-XL microdisplay offers digital signal processing, requiring less than 200 megawatt under typical operation. The supported video formats are SXGA, 720p, DVGA (through 1280 x 960 pixel doubling), and both frame sequential and field sequential stereovision.
The Company’s WUXGA OLED-XL, With a triad sub-pixel structure is built of 7,138,360 active dots at 3.2 microns each. The WUXGA design features eMagin’s Deep Black architecture that ensures that off-pixels are truly black, automatically optimizes contrast under all conditions and delivers pixel to pixel uniformity. The WUXGA OLED-XL includes a low-voltage-differential-signaling (LVDS) serial interface and the overall display power requirement is typically less than 350 megawatt running standard video. Also included is eMagin’s motion enhancement technology, which smoothes video display and virtually eliminate unwanted artifacts. Like the SXGA, the WUXGA provides a FPGA driver design available on a separate, lower power driver board, or as source code for integration into end product electronics giving OEM developers maximum versatility and flexibility.
The Company’s VGA OLED-XL utilizes the same voltage pixel drive architecture and Deep Black technology as the SXGA and WUXGA designs and includes motion artifact reduction technology like the WUXGA. Also like the SXGA and WUXGA, the VGA provides a FPGA driver design for flexibility and versatility. The VGA interface is 30-bit digital RGB.
Lens and Design Reference Kits
The Company offers a WF05 prism optic, with mounting brackets or combined with OLED microdisplays to form an optic-display module. It provides design reference kits, which include a microdisplay and associated electronics to help OEMs evaluate its microdisplay products and to assist their efforts to build and test new products incorporating its microdisplays.
The Company provides near-eye virtual imaging modules. Its near-eye virtual imaging modules incorporate its OLED-on-silicon microdisplays with its lenses and electronic interfaces for integration into OEM products.
The Company’s Z800 3DVisors give users the ability to work with their hands while simultaneously viewing information or video on the display. The Z800 3DVisor enables portable computing, using a 0.59-inch diagonal microdisplay (SVGA-3D capable of delivering an image that appears comparable to that of a 19-inch monitor at 22 to 24 inches from the eye, or a 105 inch movie screen at 12 foot distance). The Company’s systems are being used for personal entertainment, electronic gaming, and military training and simulation among other applications.
The Company competes with Kopin Corporation manufactures, Yunnan North OLEiD Opto-Electronic Technology Co., Ltd., Sony Mobile Display Corp., Global OLED Technology LLC. and Universal Display Corporation.
