HOLOEYE released a new compact phase only Spatial Light Modulator series. The LUNA SLM is based on an 0.39" LCOS microdisplay with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and 4.5µm pixel pitch. The SLM provides linear 8 bit phase levels and is addressed via DisplayPort at 60 Hz input frame rate. The driver also features an USB connector for power and advanced configurations.
HOLOEYE currently offers two versions of the LUNA phase only spatial light modulator: A VIS version (2 Pi phase shift @ 420 – 650 nm) and a version for the telecommunication waveband around 1550 nm (1400-1700 nm).
The driver ASIC is embedded in the LCOS microdisplay itself. This saves board space which enables a very compact driver and makes integration more convenient and enables implementation into small sized and portable solutions. The standard driver box has a size of only 85 x 47 x 28.8 mm.
The display can even accept video data input via a 4-lane MIPI DSI. This novel approach brings phase only Spatial Light Modulator technology to a new level of potential for industrial implementations.
