Fields of Operation
Laser based displays are one of the common applications using Maradin’s scanning solutions comprising a chipset of a MEMS scanning mirror and a controller. It is designed for high quality, small form factor displays such as Augmented Reality (AR) head mounted displays (HMD), automotive displays (Head-Up-Displays (HUD), informative displays) and any other displays utilizing lasers.
LiDAR and other 3D sensors, based on laser scanning patterns, are one of the growing markets for MEMS scanning solutions. Maradin’s MEMS scanners are ideality fit for the task with the capability of managing high power lasers at various wavelengths at a moderated system cost. Maradin’s full scanning solution, including both a MEMS scanning mirror and a controller, is designed to withstand shocks and vibrations typical for such applications. Maradin’s flexible platform enables an easy integration and a baseline for customization fit any optical requirements of the Sensor.
Laser scanning is commonly used in various of devices and applications, from home appliances to military devices. Maradin’s scanning solution is designed with the basic elements required for a seamless integration to such devices. A reliable, flexible and fully integrated scanning solution, together with a creative team enable to fit it into many devices, bringing the advantages of MEMS based laser scanning.
HOW THE LASER SCANNING PROJECTOR WORKS
The MAR1100 is a dual-axis MEMS based scanning mirror targeted for miniature laser projectors and laser steering applications. It is based on industry-leading MEMS technology with novel and precise actuation schemes. The innovative MEMS device combines a fast electro-static actuator and a powerful electro-magnetic actuator, which yields peak performance under varying conditions.
The MAR2100 is a Driver and control IC for Maradin’s MAR1100 dual-axis MEMS based scanning mirror. MAR2100 is targeted for miniature laser projectors and laser steering applications. MAR2100 drives and controls Maradin’s MAR1100 dual axis scanning mirror and generates the timing signals to synchronize the laser module through the Host, also called as Data Manipulator. As MAR1100 scanner has two uncoupled actuators – one for horizontal scan and one for vertical scan, MAR2100 controller IC supports both drivers.
