AR/VR glasses powered by microLEDs

AR/VR glasses powered by microLEDs
It has been announced by Plessey that visitors to its booth at CES 2019 will be the first to wear AR and VR glasses powered by microLEDs. The next generation of Vuzix smart glasses will be demonstrated using technology that ditches OLEDs in favour of microLED displays. Vuzix is the first company to present Plessey’s microLEDs in action for AR applications.

MiniLED adoption first driven by LCD displays

MiniLED adoption first driven by LCD displays
The excitement about microLEDs has grown since Apple acquired technology startup Luxvue in 2014. All major display makers have now invested in the technology and other semiconductor or hardware companies such as Intel, Facebook Oculus and Google have joined the pool. Amidst this flurry of news and activity, a new term emerged in early 2017: miniLED.

LED and diode markation guidelines for PCBs

LED and diode markation guidelines for PCBs
Have you ever had an LED or other diode placed backwards? PCB assemblers work hard to place every component, from the largest, highest pin-count logic chip, down to the smallest passive components and micro wafer scale BGAs, correctly every single time. A key element of that accuracy is the understanding of the board and the component markings. Duane Benson, Chief Technology Champion at Screaming Circuits, explains.

New 30° Beam Angle SMD LEDs For High-Intensity Applications

New 30° Beam Angle SMD LEDs For High-Intensity Applications
OMC new range of narrow angle, surface-mount LEDs in a variety of package styles and all popular LED wavelengths. The new SMD emitter series features integrated lenses moulded into the package which provides a 30 degree output beam. Applications for visible wavelengths include signalling and indication, in which the beam needs to be visible over greater distances, while the company’s infrared wavelength versions are used for sensing and data-communication over greater distances and with higher precision than using standard, wide-angle SMD components.
