Austrian laser projector developer TriLite is working with Dispelix in Finland on an ultra-compact display system for Augmented Reality (AR) smart glasses. The system combines TriLite’s Trixel 3 laser beam scanner (LBS) with Dispelix’s waveguides.

For AR glasses, the image creation system requires a projector, such as Trixel 3, as well as a waveguide, which is a predominately-transparent, thin piece of glass or plastic that bends and combines light beams from multiple sources into the eye.

Trixel 3 is the world’s smallest LBS projector with a volume of less than 1cm3 and weight of 1.5g. It does not require any additional relay optics between the LBS projector and the waveguide, which typically doubles the size of systems that use competitor products.

The combined system form factor with Dispelix’s ultra-thin waveguide is small enough for every style of glasses, says TriLite. The company also works with silicon from Infineon.

The high brightness LBS also supports the large viewing area, or eyebox, of Dispelix waveguides for use outdoors. The large eyebox eliminates the need for custom adjustment and fitting of AR smart glasses.

“Dispelix’s optimized waveguides are the best in the industry, and our collaboration will result in some of the thinnest, lightest and highest-performing AR consumer devices on the market,” said Peter Weigand, CEO at TriLite.

 Josh Littlefield, CRO at Dispelix, said, “Dispelix is excited to be working with TriLite, as its Trixel® 3 laser beam scanner is truly a marvel of engineering. Trixel 3 deserves an equally innovative waveguide and we are proud that TriLite sees us as their preferred waveguide partner.”
