Simplify your development tasks, and accelerate your time-to-market with our proven hardware, software tools. Everything you need to move forward to production is at your fingertips. We are here to help you navigate the display and projection development process and accelerate your system design.

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.

There are several options for integrating optical modules into your design. For applications focused on an application processor and DMD display interface electronics, an off-the-shelf DLP optical engine may be the right choice. For more complex designs, custom optics are available from our third-party network of optical module manufacturers and design houses.
