Microvision Inc was founded in 1993 in Delaware. The Company is engaged in the development high-resolution miniature laser display and imaging engines based upon its proprietary PicoP display engine technology. The Companys PicoP technology utilizes its patented expertise in two dimensional Micro-Electrical Mechanical Systems (MEMS), lasers, optics, and electronics to create a high quality video or still image from a small form factor device with lower power needs than conventional display technologies. It currently markets and sells its SHOWWX line of accessory pico projectors that use its PicoP display engine through a network of distributors. The Companys patented PicoP display engine technology includes a single-mirror MEMS scanner, laser light sources, electronics, and optics combined using its proprietary system control expertise, gained through years of internal research and development. The Companys MEMS design is a silicon device with a tiny mirror at the center. This mirror is connected to small flexures which allow it to oscillate vertically and horizontally to capture (imaging) or reproduce (display) an image pixel-by-pixel. Its PicoP display engines create a brilliant, full color, high contrast, uniform display over the entire field of view, from a small and thin package. The Companys proprietary PicoP display engine technology offers significant advantages over traditional display and imaging systems. Depending on the specific product application, these advantages may include: Small and thin package size; high brightness and contrast with 100% brightness uniformity; rich, saturated color reproduction; higher resolution; clear text readability; reduced power requirements; simple optical design that does not require complex focusing lenses; and lower price at volume. The Companys potential display products incorporating its technology will compete with established manufacturers of mature display technologies such as miniaturized cathode ray tube and flat panel display devices, as well as companies developing new display technologies. The competitors include companies such as Texas Instruments Incorporated, Micron Technology, ST Micro, and Syndiant.
