Liquid crystal on silicon (abbreviated as LCoS) is a small reflective liquid crystal micro displays using a liquid crystal layer on top on silicon baseplate. Electronic circuits controlling the liquid crystals are fabricated on a silicon chip and then coated with a highly reflective surface. This gives very high image quality, as circuitry is behind the pixel and does not produce an obstruction in the light path and prevents formation of any subsidiary image. The LCoS technology is used in major products such as head-mounted display (HMD), projectors, and head-up display (HUD).
There is a growth in demand for high resolution and high definition displays. In comparison to other display technologies such as Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) and Digital Light Processing (DLP), LCoS provides optimum pixel structure, high-quality peak resolution, fill factor, superior contrast ration, and brightness, which projects the market for further expansion and development. High demand for Pico projectors which use LCoS technology in application areas such as education, business, and home theater systems fuels the liquid crystal on the silicon market for an exponential growth.
