Texas Instruments' DLP® technology enables innovative optical solutions that disrupt existing end equipment and create new markets. The DLP chip, or Digital Micromirror Device (DMD), is an array of micromirrors that can be used for high speed, efficient, and reliable spatial light modulation. Not only a leader in consumer projection, DLP is redefining industrial, medical, telecom, security, and many other applications. With TI's powerful yet easy-to-use development tools, customers are able to reduce design cycles and deliver disruptive products.
Measuring and Sensing
3D machine vision is used to capture physical measurements, analyze the location, or inspect an object.
Dimensions, such as surface area, volume, and depth can be extracted from a digitized 3D scan and provide valuable information in medical, industrial, and security applications.
DLP technology enables a method of 3D machine vision known as Programmable Structured Light. With this method, a series of patterns is projected upon the target object and a sensor detects the distortions of the patterns. Compared with Contact Coordinate Measurements (CCM) or scanning lasers, DLP systems can produce highly accurate 3D data in real-time.
