Syndiant Working with More than 30 Customers on SVGA, WVGA Microdisplay for Embedded Cell Phone Pico-Projectors

SYL2010 Display Expected to be in Cell Phones, Media Players in 2009;
Demos Taking Place During CES This Week
 
Dallas – January 7, 2009 – Syndiant, a fabless semiconductor company that designs and manufacturers chips for ultra-portable projectors and cell phones, is working with more than 30 customers on its SYL2010 product, to be designed into portable systems using both LED and laser solid-state light sources.
 
The SYL2010, a SVGA- and WVGA-standard microdisplay, is the first in Syndiant’s VueG8® (view-gate) family of microdisplays that targets embedded cell phones and media player pico-projectors. It provides a light modulator solution that enables device manufacturers to enhance how their customers view portable media. Syndiant’s SYL2010 has more than three times the pixels and is smaller than the recently introduced DLP® pico-projector device. 
 
“We are receiving feedback from customers that indicates that the embedded pico-projector market is going to take off much sooner and will be much larger than has been previously forecasted,” said Mark Harward, CEO of Syndiant. “Our VueG8® has been compared by customers and is found to have significant advantages in cost, power, resolution, size and image quality over competing devices. We deliver higher resolution images at lower cost and without the speckle of laser beam steering systems.”
 
The SYL2010 is an 854 x 600 pixel LCOS microsdisplay with a 0.21-inch diagonal and a package height of only 7 mm to enable extremely thin products.  Syndiant is already developing both smaller size and higher resolution VueG8® family members that will be introduced in 2009.
 
Pricing and Availability
The SYL2010 is available for immediate sampling. Pricing is available based on customer request.
