We were incorporated in Delaware in 1984 and are a leading inventor, developer, manufacturer and seller of components and systems for industrial, public safety and consumer augmented ("AR") and virtual reality ("VR") wearable headsets, soldier, avionic and military armored vehicle applications, 3D optical inspection systems and training & simulation markets.
The components that we offered for sale in 2018 consisted of our proprietary miniature active-matrix liquid crystal displays ("AMLCD"), liquid crystal on silicon ("LCOS") displays / Spatial Light Modulators ("SLMs"), organic light emitting diode ("OLED") displays, application specific integrated circuits ("ASICs"), backlights, optical lenses and audio
integrated circuits ("IC"). We refer to our AMLCD as "CyberDisplay®", our LCOS displays/SLMs as "Time Domain ImagingTM technology", our OLED as "Lightning™ Displays" and our audio IC as "Whisper® Chip." Our transmissive AMLCDs are designed in Westborough, Massachusetts, U.S.A., have initial manufacturing steps performed in Asia and then are completed in our facilities in Westborough, Massachusetts, U.S.A. Our reflective LCOS microdisplays are designed in Dalgety Bay, Scotland, U.K., have initial manufacturing steps performed in Asia and are completed in our facilities in Dalgety Bay, Scotland, U.K. Our OLED displays are designed in our San Jose, California, U.S.A. facility and have initial manufacturing steps performed in Asia and then are completed by us in our facilities in Westborough, Massachusetts, U.S.A. In 2019 we anticipate that our OLED displays will be completely manufactured in Asia. Our displays provide either color or monochrome images and are offered in a variety of sizes and resolutions. The display driver ASICs we offer are designed in our San Jose, California facility and are the electronic interfaces between our displays and the products into which the displays are incorporated. The optical lenses and backlights we offer are based on either our proprietary designs or designs we license from third parties. Our licensed optical lenses are subject to agreements that have termination dates and are therefore subject to renewals. Our audio technologies are developed at our San Jose, California audio lab. The Whisper Chip, ASICs, optical lenses, and backlights are manufactured by third parties based on our purchase orders.
