Standard chipsets – Optical module
To help customers speed development, TI collaborates with an independent network of third party companies which specialize in producing production-ready optical modules. Optical modules can be designed with a variety of DLP standard chips, light sources and optical components to meet the diverse display needs of enterprise, consumer and industrial product designs.
What is an optical module?
Buy production ready optical modules online from a worldwide supplier. An optical module is a compact assembly that includes a digital micromirror device (DMD), illumination (LEDs), optics and associated mechanics. Drive electronics are required to supply power and video to the optical module. Drive electronics can either be custom built using TI Designs reference designs or sourced from independent 3rd party companies as an evaluation platform.
Consult our definitions of optical module parameters and design considerations before you get started.

An actuator is an opto-mechanical device which is used in conjunction with DLP processing algorithms to display two or more projected pixels from a single DMD micromirror. DLP optical engine manufactures incorporate actuators into their optical engines, thus providing a turn-key solution for DLP system integrators.
