Intel has stopped work on its liquid crystal on silicon semiconductor, stating that the cost of research and development necessary to produce the product wouldn’t be worth the potential revenue. The death of the liquid crystal on silicon, or LCOS, project will no doubt buoy rivals such as Texas Instruments, which makes a competing chip, called the Digital Light Processor, for companies such as Samsung. LCOS technology is fairly finicky. Intel announced in August that it had to delay its first chip. A small competitor, Brilliant Technologies, similarly had to delay its first LCOS televisions. Other companies have also failed in the past.
