Kopin Showcases New Breakthrough In Shrinking Display Size

Kopin ® Corporation (NASDAQ: KOPN), the leader in microdisplays for consumer and military applications, today announced a breakthrough in shrinking the size of its color displays. By reducing the color dots to a mere 2.25 x 6.75 µm, Kopin has achieved a full-color VGA display (640 x 480 resolution) in a 0.21” diagonal size, which is by far the smallest VGA color-filter liquid crystal display (LCD) in the world. Kopin will showcase an ultra-compact electronic viewfinder (EVF) containing the VGA display at the SID (Society for Information Display) 2012 Exhibition, which takes place June 5 – 7 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center in Boston, Massachusetts. The EVF will be shown at Kopin’s booth (#177).

“Our new VGA display with the smallest color dot in the industry is a major milestone for Kopin’s technology roadmap to provide more compact, higher resolution displays,” said Dr. Boryeu Tsaur, Kopin’s Executive Vice President and General Manager of Display. “This exciting achievement is enabled by our innovative process improvements and unique pixel design. This is the third time we were able to shrink the pixel size, and our new pixel is about 20% of the size we used in our displays four years ago.”

“Our ability to shrink the EVF enables our customers to offer smaller full featured cameras,” said Dr. John C.C. Fan, Kopin’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “With our smaller VGA display, new compact backlight and redesigned optics, we are able to provide an EVF with the same field of view (~24 deg) but about half the size compared to our current VGA EVF product. With a dimension of 17.76 mm (W) x 13.3 mm (H) x 20.5 mm (D), it is the smallest VGA EVF in the world.”
