Himax announces a SVGA LCoS and a USB 3 solution, working on WXGA, Full-HD coming in the future

Himax logoWe have quite a bit of news from Himax today. The company announced a new pico-projector LCoS microdisplay that supports SVGA (800x600) resolution. This microdisplay is already in production, and Himax has launched a full solution that combines this module with a USB 3.0 chip (the ET12U320A from Evolution Technology). This can be used to create USB projectors (that do not need any power beside the USB connection) that enables a smooth real-time video viewing from the laptop due to the fast transfer rates of the USB 3.0 port.

Himax also says that they are developing a WXGA (1280x768) resolution module, and that "a number of customers have also started end-product development" using the WXGA microdisplay. We're not sure though whether this display is aimed towards pico-projectors. Finally, the company plans to develop products up to Full-HD (1920x1080) resolution "in the future".
