STMicroelectronics and bTendo to develop the World’s Smallest Focus-Free Embedded Pico-Projector
STMicroelectronics and bTendo announced today that they have signed a development and license agreement to jointly develop the world’s smallest Pico Projector for smart phones and other portable consumer-electronics devices. The solution is based on bTendo’s innovative Scanning Laser Projection engine technology and ST’s leading MEMS (Micro-Electro Mechanical Systems) expertise.
Less than 2.5cm3 in volume and below 6mm high, the jointly developed embedded projector solution will offer a focus free, vivid color, sharp and crisp image, and superior to current pico projection solutions. Implementing two MEMS-based micro-mirror-actuation devices within the system’s optical engine, and an advanced video-processing chip, the world’s smallest projection engine is optimized for smart phones, offering low power consumption and built-in support for MIPI (Mobile Industry Processor Interface) to ensure swift and easy integration.
