DLP Pico chipsets consist of two primary components: the Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) and the display controller chip. Certain chipsets also include a power management chip.

The DMD is installed in an optical module with optics and illumination to create the heart of the projection display. The display controller is installed in the electronics board near the optical module to control the DMD and perform necessary data formatting and image processing.
