Intersil India bets big on Pico Projectors

Intersil-India now has expanded their office to serve the future expansion of Intersil India. The new 18000 square feet office can house close to 100 engineers. It houses development office, marketing and product test lab. A former employee at Texas Instruments, Ramanujam Thodur is the Managing Director of Intersil India.

Intersil is pinning high hope on pico projector. Where Intersil has developed pico projector technology using green laser with auto focus feature. Main stream availability of pico projector is expected in 2015, as per Susan. Intersil bets that its pico projector technology is more reliable and less expensive compared to the present pico-projector technology.

Intersil follows what called asset-lite, an other name for fab-lite where it gets its power management ICs fabricated by semiconductor foundry service providers. However it has strong manufacturing expertise in bringing high-rel chips to withstand harsh weather conditions in applications such as aero-space and military.

Intersil’s op-amps and other analog front end chips are used widely in India for the performance as well as cost advantage. Who knows, maybe by 2015 this can be a game changer for the US market. Only time will tell.

Aaxa L1 Laser Projector: First run!

It seems that the first batch of the infamous laser projectors has finally shipped out. We’ve seen plenty of articles showing the Microvision ShowWX, however, no one has really had one in hand. It looks as if Aaxa and their L1 Laser Projector will be the first on the market for handheld laser projection units.

Aside from being a pico projector with laser capabilities, the coolest thing about this unit is the ability to always stay in focus. Due to the lasers being used as opposed to LED projectors, images on the Aaxa L1 Laser Projector will stay clear from one wall to the next without having to mess around with the focus wheel. Further, it can generate an image on two surfaces at varying distances at the same time.

The Aaxa L1 Laser Projector also has an incredible color range. The colors look exponentially more vivid and clear than projectors of the past. We are definitely interested in seeing more to come from these laser projectors.

Check out the pictures we’ve found!
