The SBT-16 chipset features a 1.6 mm2 emitting area, large operating dynamic range with drive current up to 4 A, and a compact, un-encapsulated surface-mount (SMT) package with 6 oC/W thermal resistance.

The PocketCinema V50 Projector enables image projection up to 85 inches.
The V50’s 848 x 480 (WVGA) resolution enables image projection up to 85 inches from digital cameras, mobile phones, notebooks, and gaming consoles. The built-in reader is compatible with an extensive list of business and multimedia file formats, including 720p high-definition video, allowing immediate projection of presentations or movies without having to convert files.
