BELLEVUE, Wash., 6 Dec. 2006. Sensor Technology Systems Inc., has selected Tek Gear's eMagin-based O2 microdisplay OEM kit for the new Enhanced Heads-Up Display (E-HUD) module for the AN/PVS-21 Low Profile Night Vision Goggle.
The O2 OEM Kit is a drop-in module that makes it easy to integrate high-resolution microdisplays into new and existing designs. The O2 Kit includes eMagin's new SVGA+ OLED-XL microdisplays and Tek Gear's high-performance controller.
An accessory for STS's AN/PVS-21 Low Profile Night Vision Goggle, the E-HUD gives the device sensor fusion capabilities. The E-HUD can overlay external video signals, such as navigation data or the output of a thermal scope, onto the real world scene. This provides the user with a high level of situational awareness.
Tek Gear originally designed, tested, and delivered the O2 kit with eMagin's color SVGA+ OLED microdisplay.
eMagin's new OLED-XL devices typically feature longer (>4x) luminance half life and exhibit at least twice the nominal luminance. The new technology also improves on eMagin OLED microdisplays' power efficiency, depending on the specific OLED-XL product and operating parameters.
