bTendo and STMicroelectronics to jointly develop the world's smallest laser pico-projector module

bTendo logobTendo and STMicroelectronics announced an agreement to jointly develop the world's smallest MEMS-based Laser-Beam-Steering projector for mobile devices. This projector will be based on bTendo's dual-mirror laser projector technology and ST's MEMs, video-processing and semiconductor technologies.

The new projector module will be less than 2.5cm3 in volume and below 6mm in height. It will offer focus-free images and will include a video-processing chip and built-in MIPI ((Mobile Industry Processor Interface) support.

The two companies will show a demo at MWC 2011 (Feb 14-17). We still do not know when they plan to offer actual modules and whether they have customers waiting. Back in May 2009 we visited bTendo - and were shown a demo of their laser pico-projector technology.
