The waveguide displays manufacturer, Dispelix, is partnering with miniLED liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) device maker, Avegant, to jointly develop augmented reality smart glasses.
The strategic partnership will bring Dispelix’s ‘nanotech-enhanced LED waveguides’ together with Avegant’s ‘AG-30L 30° LED light engines’ to facilitate the development of the device.
Espoo, Finland-based Dispelix designs and manufactures augmented and mixed reality see-through displays for enterprise and consumer products and DPX waveguides that offer unrivaled functionality. Waveguides work by projecting images onto the lenses of AR and mixed reality devices offered by several notable brands, such as Microsoft, Magic Leap, Nreal, Vuzix, and others.
The company has also partnered with Shenzhen-based acoustics enterprise AAC to enhance its device component manufacturing capabilities to meet the rising demand and make the most of the opportunities within the global XR ecosystem.
Antti Sunnari, Chief Executive for Dispelix, explained how their new partnership with Avegant builds on the partnership with AAC to provide original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and original device manufacturers (ODMs) a ‘turnkey solution’ for developing top-of-the-line AR glasses.
“AAC’s unparalleled expertise in wafer-level optics mass manufacturing and the new Avegant LED optimization allows any manufacturer to quickly bring their proprietary AR solution to scale and to market with the extreme quality and unmatched performance that only Dispelix offers,” said Sunnari.
Ed Tang, Chief Executive for Avegant, further explained that the key to developing the finest AR experiences was an amalgamation of optimized waveguides with light engines.
“The pairing of our small, high-performance light engines with the Dispelix waveguide will offer the most compelling solutions for the industry. Together we are going to enable true glasses-like devices with unparalleled performance,” said Tang.
Dispelix has also joined Corning Inc.’s Laser Scanning for Augmented Reality (LaSAR) Alliance bringing together several industry-leading tech enterprises. The Alliance was founded by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Industry Standards and Technology Organization (IEEE-ISTO) to curate standards for developing AR and MR devices.
