Microvision starts shipping samples of its new small form factor LBS engine
A couple of months ago Microvision announced its new small form factor display engine, and now the company announced that it has begun to ship samples of this new engine to customers. The new LBS engine will be ready for mass production in Q2 2017.
The size of Microvision's new PSE-0403-101 engine is 3.6 x 5.3 x 0.6 cm and it has a volume of 11.6 cubic centimeters. The company says this compact size makes it useful in smartphones, portable media players, tablets and other mobile devices. Microvision also offers a short focal length version (PSE-0403-102) specifically for aftermarket head up display (HUD) applications and other applications with a fixed, short focal length.
Microvision also updated on its other two scanning engines it announced in November. Samples of the interactive display engine are planned for the second quarter of 2017 with production engines expected in the third quarter of 2017. The company expects to begin shipping samples of the mid-range LiDAR engine in the second half of 2017 with production units planned for first half of 2018 availability.
