The wearable technology market is a fast growing one, and we have yet to see the full impact on how something like Google Glass is able to change the way we live, work and play on a large scale simply because the device has yet to hit the mainstream market. Well, you can be sure that there will be a fair number of competitors out there who also want a slice of the profit pie, and OmniVision is one of them. In fact, OmniVision has introduced a new OmniGlass reference design that leverages on their OmniVision OVP2200, which has been touted to be the smallest 720p high definition LCOS solution.
Apart from that, there is also the OVP921, which happens to be a companion chip which is capable of offering image processing support while simplifying the system design even more. Working in tandem together, both the OVP2200 and OVP921 are capable of delivering a complete high performance display solution which has been specially structured to cater for the next-generation wearable consumer electronics market. Of course, it remains to be seen whether other companies would want to take up OmniVision on their reference design, but time will tell.
We do know that the OVP2200 is currently sampling, where volume production is tipped to kick off sometime in the second quarter of next year.
