At SID Display Week 2019, Arm officially launches the Arm Mali -D77 DPU display processor that significantly improves the VR user experience with dedicated hardware functions for VR HMDs, namely: Lens Distortion Correction (LDC), Chromatic Aberration Correction (CAC) and Asynchronous Timewarp (ATW). These are on top of the already feature rich Mali-D71 DPU for premium mobile devices, Mali-D77 changes the way we think about VR workload distribution across the SoC. It enables a significant step-up in the display resolutions and frame rates that can be achieved within the power constraints of mobile VR HMD devices. This will pave the way towards lighter, smaller, more comfortable VR devices free from any cables, which, in turn, could drive the widespread adoption of consumer VR.

JBD https://jb-display.com shows their active matrix inorganic microLED display chips and panels with wavelength ranging from UV to visible to IR. The pixel pitch ranges from 400 dpi to 10,000 dpi with a varity of resolutions, high brightness, high EQE, high reliability, these panels are ideal for AR, VR, HUD, projector, weapon sights, 3D printing, microscope and more. JBD's microLED uses wafer level technology, no phosphor, no pick and place, no mass transfer, no quantum dots, everything is made by Silicon and compound semiconductor on a wafer. At SID Display Week 2019, JBD shows 2 million nits brightness Micro LED, 600 DPI bi-color Micro LED display implementing JBD’s proprietary transferring technology to move red and green LEDs to silicon CMOS backplane. Also, JBD shows a mono-color microLED module with the same silicon CMOS backplane solution which achieves a pitch size of only 2.5µm and 10,000 DPI achieving a brightness of a million nits (on the 10K DPI display, 2 million nits is achieved on the 5K DPI display) at a resolution of 5000x4000. JBD is capable to minimize the pitch size to below 2.5µm, which surpasses DLP. Their next step is to increase brightness and to achieve full color.
Plessey at Display Week 2019 showcases their proprietary monolithic microLED technology to enable a new generation of augmented reality devices simplifying optical systems that are brighter, smaller, lighter and higher performing than incumbent light sources currently used in AR/MR headsets, smart glasses, pico-projectors and HUD. Plessey’s GaN-on-Silicon is their route for monolithic addressable micro LED arrays/pixels for hi-res and hi-lum displays, high brightness LEDs, microLED displays, power devices, UV LEDs, photonic integration, advanced sensors, Plessey is creating compelling cutting edge display technology solutions, addressing the challenges and limitations faced in the field of photonics, arrays with emitters as small as 1 micron, driven at low current density for greater efficiency and longevity. External Quantum Efficiency at least three times higher than best in class benchmarks with more improvements in the pipeline. Arrays that provide at least 100,000 nits at 1 watt, that’s TV equivalent brightness at only 5mW, Coloured pixels fabricated in monolithic form. IP protected custom CMOS back plane provides rapid developments for custom arrays. GaN-on-Silicon MicroLEDs outperform incumbent technologies such as OLED with an outstanding thermal performance, Focussed light emitting surface, monolithic die/array Lm/W maintenance, excellent uniformity, integrated electronic and optical components, showcasing a 0.7-inch Micro LED display for AR, made by 8µm blue LED chips on JDC’s CMOS backplane to achieve a resolution of 1920*1080.
