TriLite, ams OSRAM collaborate on AR smart glasses display

The award-winning Trixel® 3 LBS provides ground-breaking compactness and light weight, as a bright and accurate display. It has ultra-low power consumption (<320 mW) for all day use, and full color support (>200% over sRGB) for excellent image quality. Trixel 3 enables AR for smart glasses and a wide range of consumer applications.

Dr. Peter Weigand, CEO at TriLite states: “Our ecosystem strategy focusses on partnering with world leaders to ensure top quality and reliable mass manufacturing. We chose ams OSRAM as one of our technology partners due to its laser light sources’ class-leading power and efficiency, which perfectly align with the brightness, contrast, and high-performance requirements of our Trixel 3 LBS projector.”

TriLite designs for seamless mass manufacturing, incorporating customized standard components and utilizing state-of-the-art high-volume production equipment. The result is an ultra-compact optical display engine with a brightness of 15 lumens, ensuring effortless readability even in direct sunlight. Its low system latency allows AR images to blend naturally with the wearer’s surroundings and movements, providing an immersive AR experience that exceeds consumer expectations. Furthermore, Trixel 3 is fully compatible with state-of-the-art waveguides without requiring any relay optics, effectively saving space and reducing weight.

Trilite’s ultra-compact and lightweight Trixel® 3 laser beam scanner (LBS) optical display engine combines a single 2D MEMS mirror, all optical components, and the unique Trajectory Control Module (TCM) that shifts light module complexity from hardware to the software domain. The LBS module weighs less than 1.5 g and has a volume of less than 1 cm3.

ams OSRAM joins TriLite’s rapidly expanding ecosystem of manufacturing partners. Its expertise and laser diodes paired with high volume manufacturing capabilities further strengthen TriLite’s vision for the future of AR smart glasses.
