Intel Corp. has delayed the release of liquid-crystal-on-silicon display technology, which it earlier touted as the basis of its entry into the microdisplay market in the second half of 2004, according to Internet reports.

The liquid crystal chip won't be released this year as scheduled, according to a Bloomberg report, which cited an Intel spokeswoman as its source. The California-based company is holding back the chip until a better version is ready, the report quoted her as saying.

During the Consumer Electronics Show in January, Intel President and Chief Operating Officer Paul Otellini demonstrated liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) technology and revealed that Intel had code-named it "Cayley".

"We are new to this business, and the LCOS digital segment is still in the early stages," the report quoted the spokeswoman as saying. The report added that Intel is waiting until it has an improved LCOS chip better than its rivals before releasing it to the market.

Philips Electronics and numerous startup companies are already touting liquid crystal on silicon technology.
