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.

 

Texas Instruments offers a range of development tools to allow engineers and developers to experiment and create products with DLP technology. These tools support customers throughout the design phase from concept to production, reducing development costs and accelerating time-to-market. In addition to TI tools, DLP design partners offer a variety of development kits, software packages, and production modules. For a full list of 3rd party offerings, visit the Solutions & Services page.

 

Order an Evaluation Module to get started. DLP development kits and evaluation modules speed design time for innovative applications that incorporate light processing and light steering needs. Evaluation modules (EVMs) from TI and design partners are ideal for validating initial proof-of-concepts through development.
