DLP® Display Controller for High-brightness Portable Displays

DLP® Display Controller for High-brightness Portable Displays - DLPC6401


The DLPC6401 digital controller, part of the DLP4500 (.45 WXGA) chipset, supports reliable operation of the DLP4500 digital micromirror device (DMD). The DLPC6401 controller provides a convenient, multi-functional interface between system electronics and the DMD, enabling small form factor and high resolution HD displays.
