Profile: MicroVision Inc (MVIS.A)
16 Jul 2019
Microvision, Inc., incorporated on April 30, 2003, is a developer of laser beam scanning (LBS) technology. The Company markets its technology under the brand name PicoP. It has developed scanning technology that can be used in products for interactive projection, consumer light detection and ranging (LiDAR), automotive LiDAR, and augmented and mixed reality. PicoP scanning technology that can be adopted by its customers to create high-resolution miniature projection, and three-dimensional sensing and image capture solutions that use laser diodes as the light source. The Company offers key components for inclusion in a scanning engine, including its Micro-Electrical Mechanical Systems (MEMS) and Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs). The Company's PicoP scanning technology incorporates its expertise in two-dimensional MEMS, lasers, optics, and electronics to create a small form factor scanning engine with lower power needs than many other technologies that projects video and still image and/or uses depth sensing to capture three-dimensional data.
The Company licenses its PicoP scanning technology to original design manufacturers (ODMs) or original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Its technology creates a platform that can support multiple applications and markets, including enterprise, medical, industrial and automotive. The Company's PicoP scanning technology combines MEMS scanning mirror, laser diode light sources, electronics, and optics that are controlled using its system control expertise. The bi-directional MEMS scanning mirror is a key component of its technology platform. Its MEMS design is a silicon device with over one millimeter mirror at the center. This mirror is connected to small flexures that allow it to oscillate vertically and horizontally to capture (imaging) or reproduce (display) an image pixel-by-pixel. Its PicoP scanning technology creates a full color, high-contrast, uniform display over the entire field-of-view, from a small and thin package.
The Company competes with Texas Instruments, Intel, Syndiant, Velodyne, Bosch, Quanergy, Innoluce, Opus, Mirrorcle, Maradin, Himax, Pioneer and Sony (LCOS).
