eMAGIN Offers World’s First Full-Colour OLED

eMagin Corporation (AMEX: EMA), the leader in OLED-on-Silicon microdisplay technology, today announced that it is accepting orders for its new full-color active matrix organic light emitting diode (OLED) SVGA+ Developerxs Kit. The SVGA+ OLED microdisplay, designed for consumer applications, contains more than 1.5 million individually addressable picture elements and exhibits up to 16 million colors.

xeMagin has the first OLED microdisplay available for sale to commercial manufacturers for use as a computer or video display,x said Gary Jones, eMaginxs CEO and president. xIt is essentially the first full-color OLED display available for general sale. This marks an important turning point for eMagin as a company, as we move from the development-stage toward production.x

The SVGA+ Developerxs Kit, targeted at near-eye video and data applications, will be available to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) designing viewers for mobile information products such as portable computers, wireless Internet viewers, portable DVD players, gaming platforms, and wearable computers. The kit consists of a color SVGA+ resolution microdisplay and associated electronics required for OEMs to build and test new products. It will also provide OEMs with the first opportunity to evaluate an OLED-on-silicon microdisplay. Key advantages include low power, high luminance, lighter weight, easy integration with optics, and capability for integration on silicon ICs to provide system-on-a-chip capability. Properly interfaced, the display will support either PC or consumer video applications requiring minimal system power. At the same time, it provides high-resolution, high-speed, flicker-free video that can be coupled with inexpensive optics to create a large field of view with easy-to-view images.

Jones added, xOur team at eMagin has worked intensely to bring this new technology to market and to create an automated manufacturing capability. We also want to thank our outstanding partners and suppliers including Kodak, Covion, Idemitsu Kosan, Ulvac, the US Air Force, and the US Army, among others. It is truly wonderful to see the excitement from our customers as they realize how much performance they are going to be able to achieve with our SVGA+ display, coupled with the elimination of the many expensive components needed to utilize other microdisplay products that otherwise can double or triple the cost.x

eMagin recently brought into operation the last of its core manufacturing equipment, which provides potential capacity for 50,000 to 100,000 SVGA-class displays per month. The company has already received requests from over 40 OEMs and is seeking potential partners who require high-volume microdisplay production capacity. Customer requests for Developer Kits and additional SVGA+ displays should go to www.emagin.com or call 408-567-9700.

eMagin will be showing the SVGA+ in several demonstration viewfinder and headset systems in the West Hall of the Electronic Display Exhibition (EDEX 2001) in Tokyo through April 20, 2001.
