Paper Abstract

We report on the next generation of transmissive liquid crystal micro-display technology based on single-crystal Si backplane. The demand for ultra-high resolutions in combination with optimization of size, weight, and power are driving Kopin AMLCD to resolutions as high as 2k x 2k. Several key developments are driving the aggressive development of higher density, lower power AMLCD displays. We will review display performance improvements resulting from a transition to 8" Si wafer processing, including smaller design rules and multi-level metal processing. In addition, we will describe new technologies enabling ultra-low power consumption, wide operating temperature range, and "Instant-On" display performance at temperatures as low as -40° C. We will discuss how these technologies are combined in advanced micro-displays, which are enabling the next generation of ruggedized imaging applications.
