Digital Controller for DLP6500 DMD and DLP9000 DMD



The DLPC900 is a single scalable DMD controller that supports reliable operation of three high resolution DMD chips: DLP6500FLQ, DLP6500FYE, and DLP9000FLS. This high-performance DMD controller enables programmable, high-speed pattern rates for advanced light control, especially in industrial, medical, and scientific applications. DLPC900 pattern rates enable fast and accurate 3D scanning and 3D printing, as well as support high resolution and intelligent imaging applications. DLPC900 offers 128 Mbit of embedded DRAM for convenient buffering of up to 400 1-bit patterns. Input and output triggers offer easy connection and synchronization with a variety of cameras, sensors, and other peripherals. Numerous ports and connectivity options offer system flexibility and simplify chip integration into a variety of end equipment.
