Kopin Unveils High-Brightness Breakthrough for Lightning OLED Microdisplays and Debuts New 720p Resolution 0.5” OLED Display at CES 2018

Kopin Corporation will demonstrate its high-brightness Lightning organic light emitting diodes (OLED) microdisplays including its new 720p resolution (1280 x 720) OLED display at CES 2018. Kopin’s Lightning 720p OLED microdisplay is 0.49-inch diagonal size, has high brightness of over 1000 nits and has low power consumption.

“We are pleased with the rapid progress in our OLED displays,” said Dr. John C.C. Fan, Kopin’s president and CEO. “Using our proprietary backplane technology and the efforts of our OLED foundry partner Olightek, we have made significant brightness improvements in a very short period of time. We introduced our first OLED microdisplay on silicon, 2k x 2k Lightning display, at last year’s CES and it generated tremendous enthusiasm among the VR community. Now we introduce a new 720p display for mobile entertainment applications, and we are excited that our partner Pico Interactive has already designed it into the “Eagle” Mobile Theater, a CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree.”

In addition to the technical advances, establishing mass production to meet the demands for high volume consumer and enterprise applications is well underway. With OLED partner Yunnan OLiGHTEK Opto-electronics Technology Co. Ltd. (Olightek) Kopin expects to begin production of the Lighning OLED displays in 2Q this year using a new state-of-the-art OLED deposition system, which was co-funded by both companies. Additionally the joint venture with BOE Technology Group Co. Ltd. and Olightek has already secured land in Kunming, China and is ready to start construction of the world’s largest OLED on silicon factory.

Kopin’s patented Lightning’s architecture has very unique features --- much higher frame rate, lower power consumption and better image uniformity. The power consumption for the 720p display backplane running at 60 Hz is less than 40 mW.
