Leti, a CEA Tech institute, exhibited for the first time ever at the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. And the trip was a success, with Leti bringing home a number of new leads, both for the institute's key technologies and for its startups.
CES is the world's leading annual consumer electronics event, presenting the innovations, trends, and technologies that will reach the market over the coming twelve to eighteen months. This year's focus was on the Internet of Things.
For the first time ever, Leti exhibited with a booth at Eureka Park, CES's showcase for breakthrough innovations. The institute presented its latest miniaturization, low-power, and connectivity technologies.
Leti also unveiled three world-first demonstrator systems. The DiamonDisplay ultra-bright microdisplay works in full daylight, superimposing virtual images on the real-world environment in real time for augmented reality applications. The second demonstrator system, G-Link, can transfer large volumes of data between mobile devices 50 times faster than Wi-Fi with very low power consumption. The third demonstrator, TV White Space, is the first-ever implementation of a new standard that authorizes wireless broadband internet access, offering a long range and low infrastructure costs.
Leti met with dozens of manufacturers and was mentioned around 50 times in the media. The institute plans to build on its first successful trip to CES next year. See you in Las Vegas!
