Microvision is the firm behind the cool ShowWX pico laser projector. The firm has announced that it has completed the design for a new PicoP laser display engine for mobile embedded devices. The company has started shipping initial evaluation samples to prospective customers.

The new engine has an ASIC chipset half the size and weight of the original chipset and needs a third less power than earlier designs. The device has an 848 x 480 resolution and a 5000:1 contrast ratio. The contrast ratio is five times that of other pico projector engines on the market today.

Contrast isn’t the issue with pico projectors in my book, its brightness and Microvision is mum on the brightness for the new engine. There is no word on when the engine will surface in products we can buy.
