Maxim Integrated Products (Sunnyvale, CA) has introduced the MAX3600, a 3-channel RGB laser driver that enables integration of high-resolution pico projectors into small-form-factor applications. Fabricated using Maxim’s BiCMOS process, the device achieves switching times of s generate billions of colors and contrast ratios of 5000:1 and higher, while consuming 75% less real estate and 30% less power than discrete designs, making it suitable for battery-operated devices. Packaged in a 5mm × 5mm, 40-pin TQFN, the MAX3600 operates over temperatures ranging from 0 °C to +70 °C.
