Forth Dimension Displays at Photonics West 2019

At Photonics West 2019 in San Francisco (5-7 February 2019, Moscone Centre) Forth Dimension Displays will present its range of Spatial Light Modulators (SLM) and microdisplays.

The high resolution SLMs are known for their fast and stable structured light applications using binary phase modulation or binary amplitude modulation.

Please visit Booth 1651South Hall inside the Scottish Pavilion- to experience our new 2k x 2k, 4.1 MPixel microdisplay integrated into a monoviewer.

Forth Dimension Displays at Photonics West 2018

At Photonics West 2018 in San Francisco (30th January – 1st February 2018, Moscone Centre) Forth Dimension Displays will present its range of Spatial Light Modulators (SLM).

The high resolution SLMs are known for their fast and stable structured light applications using binary phase modulation or binary amplitude modulation.

Please visit Booth 317South Hall inside the Scottish Pavilion- to learn more about our new interface solutions for the 3.1 MPixel and the 1.3 MPixel SLM.

The improvements to the interface boards cut power and space requirements while adding new features.

In addition, Near-To-Eye applications of ForthDD’s microdisplays and Kopin‘s wearable devices will be on exhibition.

Forth Dimension Displays’ Wide Temperature Range SXGA microdisplay now shipping

7th September 2017, Scotland – Forth Dimension Displays is shipping this week the first lot of extended temperature range SXGA (1280 x 1024) microdisplays. This marks the successful conclusion of an internal R&D programme to widen the temperature range of the SXGA microdisplay at both, the lower and the upper ends. The introduction of a new ferroelectric liquid crystal (FLC) mixture now enables the microdisplays to be used in additional outdoor and defence applications. The parts shipped this week include the R5 drive boards and will be used in an aircraft head-up display (HUD).

The FLC is a key component in ForthDD’s unique display technology ferroelectric liquid crystal on silicon (FLCOS) allowing electro-optic switching speed of several kHz at low voltage. The new FLC mixture is compatible with other existing and future microdisplays of ForthDD.

Greg Truman, CEO of ForthDD, said “ForthDD is proud to announce our extended temperature range microdisplay. It is quite a challenge for a small manufacturing company to improve in-house one of the key materials, in this case the FLC mixture. Building on this learning curve, we are now capable of performing other FLC material optimisations and to meet tough environmental requirements. Our customers can now pursue a wide range of outdoor and defence applications using the FLCOS display technology. ”
