Abstract
Commercialization of a very high definition (HD) (>2.3 megapixel) color Active Matrix OLED microdisplay has the potential to significantly increase warfighter effectiveness without compromises in resolution, field of view and digital capability. Warfighters require high performance virtual displays that provide 20/20 visual acuity with high information content, suitable for today"s/future network centric battlespace. Combining OLED technology with advanced CMOS semiconductor processes has led to the successful development of a HD WUXGA microdisplay. The inherent high contrast and fast response of OLED technology have contributed to the superior image quality/video performance of AMOLED displays. These attributes of OLED technology facilitate a path to a higher dynamic range than currently available, as well as provide a refresh rate high enough to eliminate motion artifacts. eMagin will bring the HD WUXGA prototype display to a TRL 7, at which time the display will become a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) product for dual use applications, will be listed and promoted as an eMagin Corporation catalog item and will be optimized for volume production. This effort includes a commercial qualification plan that will stress the microdisplays over several environmental parameters, and culminate with the validation of the WUXGA microdisplay as a volume production ready unit.
