Augmented reality with Infineon’s new MEMS scanner for eyeglasses and head-up displays

Posted 8 September 2021

The new MEMS scanner solution from Infineon Technologies, comprising a MEMS mirror and MEMS driver, allows completely new product designs. Its miniature size and low power consumption are the basis for making augmented reality (AR) solutions more widely available for consumer applications such as wearables and for automotive head-up displays.

The Infineon MEMS scanner chipset enables the design of an AR micro-projector which is light in weight and can be aesthetically integrated into all-day-wear eyeglasses and sports glasses. Thanks to the chipset’s low power consumption, small batteries can easily be integrated into the frame, allowing the glasses to be worn conveniently throughout the day without the need to frequently recharge the batteries.

To advance the development of AR smart glasses’ systems for the consumer market, Infineon is collaborating with TriLite Technologies GmbH, a Vienna-based start-up. While Infineon looks after the MEMS scanner chipset, TriLite is responsible for system integration and control algorithms that enhance the optical performance of the system. Both companies combine several years of research in optical MEMS and mass manufacturing capabilities.
