TriLite was founded in 2011 and has worked with MEMS supplier Infineon Technologies GmbH to develop projection for automotive head-up displays (see Infineon MEMS scanner enables AR, head-up display).

The participants in the funding round included APEX Ventures, B&C Innovation Investments, Hermann Hauser Investment, TEC Ventures and QC·Ventures amongst others. It follows an earlier seed funding round in December 2019.

TriLite claims its projection display, based on a scanning laser beam, is the world’s smallest an therefore suitable for consumer augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) applications.

TriLite’s Trixel 3 projection display has a total volume of 0.92 cubic centimeters. It includes an RGB laser light source and a micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) mirror, enabling it to generate bright, high-quality images. TriLite along with partners offers manufacturing to support end-customers’ production ramp.

“This new round of funding will enable us to invest in innovation and increase our competitive advantage, whilst further strengthening our patent portfolio and building our manufacturing services platform,” said Peter Weigand, CEO at TriLite, in a statement.

Hermann Hauser, founder of Hermann Hauser Investment GmbH, said in the same statement: “TriLite’s tiny displays are set to be a game-changer for AR/MR glasses since they’ll be as lightweight as today’s eyewear, and this is sure to finally drive mass adoption of AR/MR in the consumer market.”
