Syndiant technology has announced it has raised $10.7 million to ramp up production of its LCoS panels. The liquid crystal on silicon panels are employed in micro projectors as the key imager ingredient in the projector. This technology rivals that of
Texas Instruments DLP technology as well as LCD technology employed by Epson in their mobile projectors. The Syndiant technology is very similar to other LCoS manufacturers such as Micron in that its field technology does not employ a color filter so is primarily used in RGB type mobile projectors.
This is exciting news micro projector industry as many of the key players in this industry are attracting real funds as demand for mobile projectors and embedded micro projector solutions continues to increase.
