(ACTIVE) Digital Controller for DLP5500 DMD


The DLPC200 performs image processing and control and DMD data formatting to drive the 0.55 XGA DMD (DLP5500).

This digital controller gives users reliable, independent high-speed micromirror control. It is used for structured light, display, and other spatial light modulation (SLM) applications. Solid state illumination (SSI) technology provides pattern rates up to 5000 Hz binary or 700 Hz 8-bit grayscale.

This easily-programmable device allows users to interface and synchronize the chipset to external sources (for example, sensor, camera, and processor) enabling 3D machine vision applications with high accuracy. Multiple configuration interfaces offer flexibility for external and embedded input sources. Because the DLPC200 conveniently loads and stores custom patterns it is ideal for advanced light control applications.
