MVIS Microvision

MicroVision, Inc. is a US company that develops laser scanning technology for projection, 3D sensing, and image capture. MicroVision's display technology uses a micro-electrical mechanical systems scanning mirror with red, green, blue, and infrared lasers, optics and electronics to project and/or capture images. The company licenses its products primarily to original equipment manufacturers such as STMicroelectronics. The MEMS scanning micro-mirror is the basis of MicroVision’s technology platform. The MEMS design consists of a silicon device with a millimeter-scale mirror at the center. The mirror is connected to flexures that allow it to swing vertically and horizontally to display an image. In projection-mode the MEMS laser beam scanning display method can be compared to raster scanning in a cathode ray tube display. Product applications include mobile projection virtual retinal display, head-mounted display, and automotive head-up display. The technology has also been used in a smartphone by the manufacturer Blackview.
