Profile: eMagin Corp (EMAN.A)
24 Mar 2017
eMagin Corporation (eMagin), incorporated on November 30, 1993, is engaged in the manufacture of microdisplays using organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology. The Company designs, develops, manufactures and markets OLED on silicon microdisplays, virtual imaging products that 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 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 its original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers to develop and market electronic products, especially products that are mobile and portable. Using the Company's active matrix OLED technology, various computer and electronic system functions can be built directly into the OLED microdisplay silicon backplane. 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 product development programs and design of customized displays with resolutions or features to meet special customer requirements.
SVGA+OLED Microdisplay Series
The Company's SVGA+OLED Microdisplay Series is approximately 0.62 inch diagonal microdisplay, which has a resolution of 852x600 triad pixels (over 1.53 million picture elements). The display also has an internal National Television System Committee (NTSC) monochrome video decoder for low power night vision systems. SVGA+ Rev3 OLED-XL microdisplay is an OLED display solution for near-eye personal viewer applications that uses approximately 115 megawatt power in monochrome for thermal imaging applications, and over 175 megawatt for full color video.
Digital SVGA OLED-XL
The Company's Digital SVGA or DSVGA OLED-XL is an 800 x 600 display with over 15 micron pixels and approximately 0.6 inch diagonal. Digital SVGA features a digital composite signal interface for color applications.
The Company's SXGA096 OLED-XL/XLS features approximately 9.6-micron color pixel and is designed with the same level of feature integration as the DSVGA microdisplay, as well as low voltage differential signaling (LDVS) data interface. SXGA096 OLED-XL/XLS offers small form factor applications, such as commercial headsets and smart weapon sights.
The Company's SXGA OLED microdisplay with approximately 0.77 inch diagonal active area provides over 3,932,160 sub-pixels in an active area. The display's triad pixel array comprises 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 over 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 VGA OLED-XL is over 0.5 inches and low powered microdisplay. 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 similar to WUXGA. Similar to SXGA and WUXGA, the VGA provides a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) driver design for flexibility and versatility.
The Company's WUXGA OLED-XL has a triad sub-pixel structure, which is built of over 7,138,360 active dots at approximately 3.2 microns each. The WUXGA design features its Deep Black architecture that ensures that off-pixels are truly black optimizing contrast under all conditions and delivers pixel to pixel uniformity. The WUXGA OLED-XL includes a LVDS serial interface and the overall display power requirement is typically approximately 350 megawatt running standard video. Also included is its motion enhancement technology, which helps in video display and virtually eliminates unwanted artifacts. Similar to 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 for OEM developers.
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 competes with Yunnan OLiGHTECK Opto-Electronic Technology Co., Ltd., MicroOLED, Global OLED Technology LLC., Sony Mobile Display Corp and Universal Display Corporation.
