The Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting will be held October 5 – 7 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Microvision will be there, showing attendees how our innovative display technology can help U.S. Army war fighters carry out their mission more effectively and more safely.

What is the AUSA Annual Meeting? It’s the largest landpower exposition and professional development forum in North America, occupying some 500,000 square feet of exhibit space. Each year, over 30,000 people attend, including senior leaders from the Army, DoD, and Congress, as well as many foreign dignitaries.

Here is a closer look at the PicoP Evaluation Kit (PEK).  The PEK is an evaluation tool for product design engineers to let them ‘test-drive’ a laser display for pico projection applications.  The PEK is offered at a sub-$5K price, and as stated by a recent PEK customer “the value and benefit of being amongst the first to evaluate, test and design potential products based on an ultra-miniature laser-based pico projection engine is well worth the investment”. Supporting our future strategy of embedding the PicoP display engine inside OEM’s mobility products, we’re pleased that customers from a wide variety of industries have already purchased and used the PEK to explore a range of prototype and proof-of-concept laser display applications.  Specifically, customers are evaluating and designing product considerations ranging from mobility devices, automotive and aerospace products, and medical systems equipment to industrial 3D modeling devices, non-contact precision measurement, and wearable display innovations.

The PEK Rocks

One of the things that I’m most excited about this year is our brand new PicoP Evaluation Kit (PEK). This is a tiny metal box with our PicoP Display Engine (PDE) inside. The PEK accepts power and video signal from a host device or computer and it projects a bright, beautiful image, just like our SHOW WX handheld accessory.

Purchasing a PEK allows customers to evaluate our laser scanning display engine at the highest performance, with the fastest turnaround, and the lowest cost that we’ve ever provided. This streamlined, low barrier to entry process means more customers can engage with us and try our technology than ever before. In this way, customers can use the PEK to experience Microvision technology inside of their own prototype systems and then work with us on an embedded PDE application.

The PEK is already small enough (60 mm x 68 mm x 10 mm, or 0.39” x 2.40” x 2.68”) to be embedded in proof-of-concept/prototype devices, and it can illustrate to customers how it’s possible to elevate the user experience of mobile devices by using PicoP.

Leading companies in computer hardware, mobile devices, microprocessors, software and electronics have already purchased PEKs to experience the power of Microvision’s technology first hand. It’s exciting to know that our world class technology is now in the hands of these world class customers. For more information, and to purchase a PEK, click here.
