Next Generation -- Shipping new samples.

MicroVision Ships Samples of Next Generation of High-Resolution MEMS Scanner

REDMOND, Wash., April 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:MVIS), a leader in innovative ultra-miniature projection display and sensing technology, today announced that it has provided samples for customer evaluation of a next generation, high-resolution MEMS scanner. The new scanner doubles the resolution of the company’s current scanner and can be used in a variety of consumer and industrial applications.

“Our new MEMS scanner represents a major advancement for our scanner portfolio,” said Perry Mulligan, MicroVision’s Chief Executive Officer. “The new MEMS scanner utilizes two mirrors, an ultra-flat piezo-electric 2mm diameter mirror, combined with a magnetic 6x5mm mirror, to achieve industry leading resolution of 2560 x 1440 for laser beam scanned displays. Providing users with a flicker-free experience, the new scanner operates at 120Hz, while maintaining about the same power consumption as our current single mirror product,” Mulligan added.

While retaining a very small form factor, the new scanner can support customers that want to offer products with the equivalent of either 1080p or 1440p resolution displays.

“The new scanner will be a core component of our future high-resolution engines, and continues MicroVision’s leadership in laser beam scanning technology,” Mulligan added.


I'll go out on a limb here and say this will have some very nice benefits in the LiDAR world as well.
