eMagin Corporation, a manufacturer of active matrix organic light emitting diode (OLED) microdisplays, has released a new PC interface kit that supports its SVGA series of OLED microdisplays.

OLEDs are self-emissive displays that use organic materials formed into thin films that are driven by electric current to generate light, without requiring backlights The PC interface kit consists of the stereovision capable interface module, an RGB cable to the analog PC output connection, a USB power connection and a 5 foot flexible cable from the interface to the display connectors on the OLED microdisplay. The interface module permits OEM customers to easily use industry standard RGB (VGA) connections and interfaces with eMagin's SVGA-3D or SVGA+ OLED microdisplays.

"While our original OLED developer kits have permitted customers to successfully develop their own custom interfaces and to introduce commercial products, we expect this new component to accelerate the OEM development process,"says Susan Jones, executive vice president of eMagin.

"Without the need to develop their own boards and connectors, customers will be able to more quickly design and introduce products based on our new smaller form interface kit. In particular, we believe that customers in the consumer products area will welcome this opportunity to bring forward the introduction dates of their products."

The interface kit can operate using power from a USB port so batteries or external power supplies are not required. It immediately provides automatic stereovision recognition for binocular frame sequenced stereovision operation, a one-touch image-flipping switch, a digital luminance control switch on the interface module, and includes standard ports for stereo audio.

In addition to the new interface kit, eMagin also offers OEMs an SVGA OLED developer kit, which provides a serial-to-I2C adapter for the direct loading and interrogation of display registers located on the display chip. The developer kit provides a menu selection of resolution, frequency, image flip, monochrome operation, gain, and offset, and also provides NTSC RS-170 video composite input for SVGA+ monochrome.
