DLPC120-Q1 (ACTIVE) DLP® Automotive DMD Controller for DLP3030-Q1 Chipset



The DLPC120-Q1 DMD Display Controller for automotive applications is part of a chipset, compatible with one of two DMDs (i.e. DLP3000-Q1 or DLP3030-Q1). The core DLPC120-Q1 logic is responsible for accepting video input and formatting the data to display on the DMD while simultaneously controlling RGB LEDs in order to create a real-time image. The DLPC120-Q1 is also responsible for controlling the power-up and power-down events of the DMD, based on external system control or temperature input from the DMD. Combined with an external dimming circuit and micro-controller, the DLPC120-Q1 supports a wide dimming range > 5000:1 for HUD applications. Typically, the DLPC120-Q1 is a slave device in an I2C interface with a host processor.
