on Reference Design for Augmented-Reality Smart Glasses
- Leverages Quanta’s expertise in system design for manufacturability
- Builds on ST leadership and successes in MEMS1 micro-actuation and LBS2 systems
Together, ST and Quanta are developing the optical, electronic, and photonics design to enable volume manufacturing of AR smart glasses that satisfy the demanding technical challenges of all-day-wearable smart glasses. The reference design aims to integrate and build upon the expertise of the members of the LaSAR3 Alliance into small, light-weight, and fashionable AR glasses that operate at extremely low power and assure a good Field-of-View (FoV) with a large eye box, while assuring a range of avenues for value-added customization.
“The simultaneous and spirited efforts of ST within the
“Imagine smart glasses that are as comfortable to wear as your regular eyewear or sunglasses, yet deliver directions as you approach an intersection, explain exhibits when you look at them in a museum, or remind you of the name of familiar face coming toward you, and you’ll appreciate why we see so much value in contributing our design-for-manufacturing expertise to work with ST and its LBS-based solution,” said
ST and Quanta anticipate the reference design being made available to OEMs in Q1 2021.
1 MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) are miniaturized mechanical and electro-mechanical elements manufactured on a small piece of silicon using semiconductor processing and manufacturing technology. Micro-actuators are MEMS devices capable of producing precision movement of solids or fluids, including the movement of micro-mirrors in Laser Beam Scanners.
2 LBS (Laser Beam Scanning) uses MEMS micro-mirrors in conjunction with laser diodes and related optics to create a miniaturized display.
At ST, we are 46,000 creators and makers of semiconductor technologies mastering the semiconductor supply chain with state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities. An independent device manufacturer, we work with our 100,000 customers and thousands of partners to design and build products, solutions, and ecosystems that address their challenges and opportunities, and the need to support a more sustainable world. Our technologies enable smarter mobility, more efficient power and energy management, and the wide-scale deployment of the Internet of Things and 5G technology.
