Dispelix, a see-through waveguide developer for XR, together with Avegant, a developer of miniaturised LED light engines, has announced a new jointly executed reference display module.
This collaborative effort showcases AR glasses with consumer-ready visual quality in an everyday wearable form factor, with components available to buy now. The design is based on Dispelix Selvä – a thin, light, and bright LED waveguide combiner – and Avegant’s latest light engine AG-30L2, which has a significantly smaller footprint than the previous-generation engine. The components used in the design are high-performing and mass manufacturable.
“As a component developer and supplier, we want to ensure maximum compatibility for our waveguide technology, making close collaboration and partnerships with projector manufacturers hugely important,” says Pia Harju, VP of Business Development at Dispelix. “Optimised component compatibility creates a unique opportunity for any manufacturer to utilise the combination as a turnkey solution, today.”
“A joint reference display module with Avegant allows us to provide our customers with the opportunity to experience our technology,” continues Harju. “Our mission at Dispelix is to help XR leaders realise their product visions for everyday XR glasses. For this reason, we find it extremely important to demonstrate our technology in a form factor that has the look and feel of ordinary glasses. In the future, we look forward to also showcasing our technology in reference designs that have been executed with OEM partners.”
“Our AG-30L2 incorporates innovative illumination and optical designs to significantly reduce the light engine volume, enabling our customers to build true glasses like form factor products. The AG-30L2 is in production now and is seeing incredible adoption and excitement from customers due to its small form factor and performance. We are excited to provide this engine together with the Dispelix Selvä waveguide to offer customers turnkey reference display module designs.” says Ed Tang, CEO of Avegant.
