Dispelix, the acknowledged leader in see-through waveguide displays for augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) wearables, today announced it is partnering with Avegant, developer of miniaturized LED light engines for AR glasses. This partnership will see Dispelix's nanotech-enhanced LED waveguides optimized for ideal pairing with Avegant's newly announced AG-30L 30° LED light engines.

LED light engines are the most common image sources in today's AR glasses and MR headsets. At the same time, diffractive waveguides are the market-leading near-eye display technology that has been utilized in most enterprise and consumer AR glasses, such as Microsoft HoloLens and Magic Leap.

Avegant joins the Dispelix extended partnership program along with AAC, which recently became one of the company's strategic partners for the mass manufacturing of Dispelix see-through waveguide displays. The AAC partnership is a necessity to address the massive growth in demand associated with the global XR wearables market. The partnerships with Avegant enables full optimization of the two primary components in an AR hardware solution.

"The new partnership with Avegant builds on the AAC agreement by giving OEMs and ODMs alike a turnkey solution for developing the highest-performance AR glasses on the market. AAC's unparalleled expertise in wafer-level optics mass manufacturing, along with the new Avegant LED optimization, allows any manufacturer to quickly bring their proprietary AR solution to scale and to market with the premium quality and unmatched performance that only Dispelix offers," said Antti Sunnari, CEO of Dispelix.

"Combined optimization of waveguides with light engines is key to enabling the best AR experiences. The pairing of our small, high-performance light engines with the Dispelix waveguides will offer the most compelling solutions for the industry," said Ed Tang, CEO of Avegant. "Together we are going to enable true glasses-like devices with unparalleled performance."
