• What do you need to know before ordering Liteye product.

    First and foremost, understand your applications requirements. Are you using a computer or a camera? Stated differently what your signal source is. A camera will output composite video, either PAL or NTSC and a computer will output analog RGB. These are the only signals that Liteye products accept natively To further clarify the signal type and the restraints , analog RGB can only be a resolution of 800X600 or 640X480 and the composite video is either CCIR (monochrome PAL) or RS170 (monochrome NTSC). Most color composite video will simply be converted to monochrome. It is rare that a sync problem will be seen.


    The driver electronics are not auto sensing for the type of signal input (they are not “plug and play”). Some user interaction must occur to tell the electronics the type of signal being used. For instance, the user may have to push a button or change cable type used; simply changing the signal input will not reconfigure the electronics to accept a change in signal type. These and other configurations are determined by the firmware build loaded onto the driver electronics.


    It is important that you discuss your application carefully with a Liteye sales representative before making your final decision on a firmware configuration.


    Liteye products also come in two main varieties. The first is a direct view configuration like the view finder of a video camera. You see a picture but you are not actually looking through the camera. You are simply looking at a display that is showing some image on it.


    The other configuration is like an SLR camera. When you look through the view finder you are actually looking through the lens. You may see information displayed such as battery life remaining or shutter speed, but this information is displayed over the real world. These our like our “see through”  optic products.


    One other consideration is your power source. Liteye products natively accept 4.5vDC to 6.5vDC. This will cover USB power to 4 Double AAs. To use higher power source than this, a power a regulator will have  to be used to keep the voltage within acceptable limits.


    As stated earlier, these and other configurations are determined by the firmware build, optical configuration and other available accessories chosen at the time of purchase . It is important that you discuss your application carefully.

    < 120        < 310

      No more than one sub pixel out per pixel (Touching sub-pixels in RGB order within row.) No more than 2 adjacent sub pixels out


    Standard XL Display- Our standard for microdisplay pixel defects is less than 144 sub-pixels defects (off) per panel, or 0.01% of the total amount of sub pixels in the SVGA+ display.





  • What is the Mean Time Between Failure of the OLED display

    Most Liteye products utilize a OLED display and it is the display with the shortest MTF, therefore we usually refer to the display when classifying our products.

    The following is a standard statement regarding MTTF (Mean Time To Failure). Since microdisplays that fail are irreparable, a MTTF is used instead of MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure).

    Each display can be considered to have two major components: the carrier PCB and the OLED. The MTTF (Mean Time To Failure) of the carrier PCB and its components are standard for electrical components, more than a million hours. On the other hand, the MTTF of the OLED has been evaluated to be approximately 200,000 hours. To achieve this value two sets of 32 displays were operated at 85°C and 85%RH until all failed. The cumulative number of failures is used in conjunction with activation energy and acceleration factor in order to evaluate the failure rate at room temperature, and from there the MTTF.

  • What are the assembly standards for Liteye products

    Most all Liteye controller boards and cable assemblies are compliant with the "Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive" (RoHS) Initiative 2002/95/EC.

    Most all Liteye controller boards and cable assemblies are compliant with the "Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies" ANSI/IPC A-610B.

    Where applicable, Liteye products conform to the IEC Ingress Protection rating of IP67 (dust-tight, protection against temporary immersion) or IP68 (dust-tight, protection against complete continuous submersion in water up to 1 meter deep for 15 minutes)

  • How is power measured on Liteye's product

    The objective is to test  to find the a correlation between level of pixels intensity and power consumed by the HMD with a set luminance level. The luminace adjustment is divided into 256 steps.  The plus/minus buttons on our units simply increment and decrement the luninace level. This of course can be altered to fit the customer's needs though. In the test, it is set to a nominal level towards the middle of the scale. Please see the results of this test  in the
