announced an agreement with Bild Innovative Technology to offer its line of OLED microdisplay compact driver boards to eMagin customers. Under this arrangement, customers now have the option of purchasing eMagin OLED microdisplays together with compact drive boards, thereby streamlining its prototyping efforts.
"We are committed to providing differentiated solutions to our customers that leverage our industry-leading displays," said Scott Bukofsky, eMagin's VP of business development. "An important part of that vision is to enable our customers to get to prototype faster, and offering compact drive boards from Bild is going to accelerate that process. Bild's products are already enabling many customers in the OLED microdisplay application space, and the addition of these products to our offering is a great step forward. We envision other additions to complement our displays in the future, as well as the opportunity for customization, to provide our customers with a simplified supply chain for a rapid ramp of their products."
Bild Innovative Technology's compact single-board designs are suitable for virtually any application. The company offers a variety of video interface choices and multiple control interface options to provide flexible integration options. The initial boards available from eMagin will be for SXGA096, SXGA120, and DSVGA resolutions, with more to be added in the future.
"By bringing together our two companies' unique and complementary expertise and strengths in close cooperation, we aim to provide our customers unequaled technological solutions and support for both standard and custom solutions," said Pete Beerdeke, president of Bild Innovative Technology. "Bild's off-the-shelf standard OLED drivers and peripheral components offer rapid solution capabilities for concept development and prototyping, as well as mature starting points to meet custom design needs. We look forward to further leveraging our combined capabilities for the development of product solutions as this exciting technology continues to develop and new requirements emerge."
