An emerging display market are microdisplays for Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) display applications. Personal wearable displays are the main driver of this market.

VR displays are typically small form factor (1inch), high density displays with FHD (1920x1080) or higher pixel count. Individual subpixels on current and future microdisplays are smaller than 15┬Ám.

Advantech U.S. is currently developing shadow mask manufacturing solutions that address these extremely high aperture densities beyond 800 pixels per inch.
