The DLPC230-Q1 DMD Display Controller for automotive applications is part of two DMD chipsets: DLP5530-Q1 (interior display applications, such as HUD) and DLP5531-Q1 (exterior lighting applications, such as high resolution headlight).  Both chipsets include a 0.55” DMD and the TPS99000-Q1 System Management and Illumination controller. The DLPC230-Q1 integrates an embedded processor with error code correction (SECDED ECC), enabling host control and real-time feedback, on-chip diagnostics, and system monitoring functions. On-chip SRAM is included to remove the need for external DRAM. Combined with the TPS99000-Q1, the DLPC230-Q1 supports high dynamic range dimming of over 5000:1 for HUD applications. Sub-LVDS 600-MHz DMD interface allows high DMD refresh rates to generate seamless and brilliant digital images, while simultaneously reducing radiated emissions.
