DLP products

Start development with our display & projection products

Our design and development ecosystem can help simplify your design process. Explore design options and find resources for TI DLP® display and projection to help make it easier for you to get to market.

Investigate & find the right device

Whether you already know your specific display requirements or are investigating new options, we can help find the best DLP display product for your application, from nHD to 4K UHD. Our ≤ 0.47-in array pico products are designed for display applications that demand small form factor and low power consumption while ≥ 0.47-in array products are designed for display applications that demand the highest brightness and performance.

Easily explore display and projection foundational concepts


Once a suitable DLP display product has been selected, you are ready to start your project. The easiest way to experience DLP technology is by purchasing an EVM. Depending on your needs, a full range of EVMs are designed to help both beginners and experienced engineers move from evaluation to production quickly.

Step 1 of evaluation: select your hardware

Our DLPDLCR2000EVM with nHD resolution is the most affordable way to get started with DLP technology. For high resolution 4K UHD development there are multiple options, including the DLPDLCR660TEVM. Use the table below as a quick guide to select the right EVM for your application and visit our TI E2E™ support forum for more details. You can also find hardware reference designs here.

We are here to help you navigate the display and projection development process and accelerate your system design. We offer technical documentation, reference designstraining videos and more. In addition, our TI E2E™ support forums provide fast and reliable technical support from our engineers throughout every step of your design.

As you get started with development, your printed circuit board needs to incorporate the appropriate layout and electrical design requirements for your DLP display and projection sub-system. Failure to adhere to these guidelines can result in permanent damage to devices. Learn more: 

Third-party development

To best meet your design needs and accelerate your time-to-market, DLP® Products works with a variety of third parties to help with everything from optical modules and hardware design to specialty software and other production services. The table below represents a portion of our third-party partner network, while a full list of third partner partners can be viewed here

An optical module is a compact assembly that includes a digital micromirror device (DMD), illumination (LEDs), optics and associated mechanics. Drive electronics are required to supply power and video to the optical module. Drive electronics can either be custom built using TI Designs reference designs or sourced from independent 3rd party companies as an evaluation platform. Read the TI DLP® Pico™ System Design Optical Module Specifications application report to learn more.
