Oerlikon and Microvision to Bring Tiny Pico Projector to Market

Oerlikon Optics has been collaborating with Microvision on the optimization of Microvision's ultra-miniature projection display engine, called PicoP. This effort focuses on leveraging Oerlikon's experience in high-volume design to create a compact, manufacturable and affordable PicoP product for Microvision's customers. Ultimately, it is expected that PicoP will be incorporated into a variety of applications and products in the automotive and consumer space.

The PicoP is an ultra-miniature projector capable of producing color rich, high resolution, large images, but small and low-power enough to be embedded directly into mobile devices, such as cell phones. Other potential display applications based on the PicoP are numerous and include tiny projectors embedded into or used as accessory displays for mobile devices such as personal media players, gaming devices, laptops, and DVD players.
