Paper Abstract

The ICVision system is a diffractive display based on VLSI and liquid crystal technology designed to compute and display holographic stereograms in real-time. The diffractive display is formed on the surface of standard integrated circuit chips which have been covered with a liquid crystal overlay. Fringing electrostatic fields generated by indium tin oxide electrodes on top of the integrated circuit are used to induce the actual diffractive display. A large display may be assembled from several hundred individual dies. Within each individual die making up the ICVision display will be the processor that computes the image to be displayed. This paper describes the design of image storage and drive electronics for the ICVision display. The proposed electronics allow the fabrication of an individual static ram cell and d/a converter for each of the tens of thousands of diffractive elements that make up a ICVision display.
