A highly integrated, 8-bit RGB laser driver, Maxim Integrated Products’ MAX3601 is suitable for pico laser projectors in automobiles. The device offers a smaller size, brighter light, and lower cost in comparison to traditional technology as well as enables sharper head-up displays (HUDs), the company claims. Available in 3 x 3.5 mm (0.11 x 0.13 in), 42-bump wafer-level packaging (WLP) and 5 x 5 mm (0.19 x 0.19 in), 40-pin thin quad flat no-lead (TQFN) packages, this integrated circuit drives three RGB lasers to provide a brighter light without compromising the low power. The high intensity of the lasers project brighter, more vivid images onto the HUD to easily alert the driver while enhancing safety.
