Forth Dimension Displays（ForthDD）被公认为是高端显示器市场全球领先的microdisplay 供应商，但鲜为人知的是，在一般与microdisplay 无关的市场中它还成功地为许多生产创新、先进应用产品的高科技公司提供服务。其中就包括西班牙巴塞罗那的Sensofar-Tech。 Sensofar最成功的产品之一是PLu 2300 轮廓仪，将共聚焦和干涉技术集成于单个测量头中，这也是Sensofar 产品的一个独特的特性。这一双重技术的优势是能通过将放大倍率较低的干涉物镜（从2.5X 到50X）与放大倍率较高的共聚焦物镜（从10X 到200X）集成于单个工具，从而可以测量各种类型的表面形貌。在每台Sensofar PLu 2300 的关键位置，您会发现由Forth Dimension Displays 制造的microdisplay。 SXGA microdisplay 只是PLu 2300 需要的一部分功能技术，而要将microdisplay 技术整合入应用产品中则必须通过全面了解其自有知识产权并拥有microdisplay 驱动程序算法和计量的公司来实现。 ForthDD工程技术经理Calum Dewar 表示：“Sensofar 的应用与其他任何传统的microdisplay 应用十分不同。Microdisplay的基本操作必须从根本上改变，才能满足Sensofar 所要求的规格。通过与Sensofar 工程师们的紧密合作并听取他们的要求，我们及时地以极具成本效益的方式达到了Sensofar 的要求。” ForthDD与Sensofar 的下一步合作将是集成即将上市的SXGA-3DM 产品。欧洲市场销售经理Dave Vettese 说道：“当SXGA-3DM 规格咨询会议结束，SXGA-3DM 产品已完成设计构思后，我问了一个问题：它能用于Sensofar 的产品吗？我们的工程师当下立即表示肯定地说‘能’。” 等SXGA-3DM 在今年下半年推出后，Sensofar 将是第一批获得该产品的公司之一。3DM产品将持续提供特别符合Sensofar 要求的精准计量和算法，还将新增一个不带视频接口（对Sensofar 来说多余的功能）带触发和信号的小型简单的微显示系统，确保microdisplay 和Sensofar 系统的完全同步。Sensofar 和ForthDD 的未来无疑将紧密相连，共同致力于通过提供创新的解决方案获得成功。通过提供SXGA-3DM 产品，ForthDD 将仍是Sensofar 产品的关键部件供应商。
