A joint project involving Indigo Systems Corp. (Santa Barbara, CA), Santa Barbara Infrared Inc. (SBIR; Santa Barbara, CA), and Rockwell Science Center/Boeing (RSC; Thousand Oaks, CA) has produced the Mirage (multispectral infrared animation generation equipment) IR scene simulator for military and aerospace dynamic-testing applications. The equipment incorporates Indigo`s mixed-signal IC technology, SBIR`s electro-optical test system design, and RSC`s uncooled detector/emitter processing capability to accept 3-D-rendered analog or digital scene data and perform end-to-end tests.

In a technology-development partnership with Computer Associates International Inc. (CAI; Islandia, NY), Identix Inc. (Sunnyvale, CA) has integrated its Smart-Touch fingerprint-verification technology with CAI`s Unicenter TNG single sign-on security option. The integrated graphical system accesses multiple, enterprise-wide applications and responds in less than one second to a user`s finger touch.

Vivid Semiconductor Inc. (Chandler, AZ) has granted Oki Electric Industry Co. Ltd. in Japan a license to manufacture Vivid`s notebook- and CRT-replacement TFT LCD column-driver ICs with a sales goal of 1 million units per month in 1999. In another joint development, Vivid is teaming with Candescent Technologies Corp. (San Jose, CA) to deliver CMOS display drivers for Candescent`s ThinCRT displays.

In Focus Systems Inc. (Wilsonville, OR), a supplier of data/video projection products, and Colorado MicroDisplay Inc. (Boulder, CO), a developer of reflective microdisplay technologies, have entered into a strategic technology development partnership to produce liquid-crystal-on-silicon displays for data/video projection systems.
