The DLP3000 digital micromirror device (DMD) is a digitally-controlled micro-opto-electromechanical system (MOEMS) spatial light modulator (SLM) optimized for small form-factor applications. When coupled to an appropriate optical system, the DLP3000 can be used to modulate the amplitude and direction of incoming light. The DLP3000 creates highly flexible light patterns with speed, precision, and efficiency.
Architecturally, the DLP3000 is a latchable, electrical-in/optical-out semiconductor device. This architecture makes the DLP3000 well-suited for use in applications such as 3D scanning or metrology with structured light, augmented reality, microscopy, medical instruments, and spectroscopy. The compact physical size of the DLP3000 is well-suited for portable equipment where small form factor and lower cost are important. The compact package complements the small size of LEDs to enable highly-efficient, robust light engines.
The DLP3000 is one of two devices in the DLP® 0.3 WVGA chipset. Proper function and reliable operation of the DLP3000 requires that it be used in conjunction with the DLPC300 controller. See the DLP 0.3 WVGA chipset data sheet (DLPZ005) for further details.
