Understanding DLP technology

How does DLP technology work?

DLP technology is centered around the digital micromirror device (DMD), which is an array of individually addressable, highly reflective aluminum micromirrors. The DMD allows developers to perform high speed, efficient, and reliable spatial light modulation. Using TI's proven semiconductor manufacturing capabilities, each DMD contains up to 8 million individually controlled micromirrors built on top of an associated CMOS memory cell.

The DMD is paired with visible LED, laser, or lamp illumination for display and can also support UV or IR wavelengths for light control applications. The illumination source and micromirrors are synchronized to achieve the projected output.


Unmatched experience and collaboration

TI DLP technology offers the following advantages:
  • Provides vivid, crisp image quality to traditional and emerging display applications
  • Trusted by innovators in a diverse range of industrial and automotive end products
  • DLP technology Academy Award® winning* DLP Cinema® technology is by far the most compelling choice in projection, powering more than eight out of 10 digital movie screens worldwide
  • Powerful, flexible chipsets provide customers high speed and precise control of millions of mirrors with pixel data rates up to 60 Gbps

* 2014 Academy Award® of Merit (Oscar® statuette) to Larry Hornbeck for the invention of the digital micromirror technology as used in DLP Cinema projection.


DLP chipsets

DLP chipsets typically include a DMD, a controller and a power management integrated circuit (PMIC) driver to enable maximum pattern rates and excellent image quality. These are designed using TI's extensive knowledge about how to reliably drive the micromirrors across a wide range of operating conditions. The chipset can also synchronize with external sensors, cameras, motors, or other devices.

The DLP chipset includes:

  • DMD – Digital micromirror device
  • DMD Controller – provides the convenient interface for reliable, high speed control of the micromirrors
  • DMD Micromirror Drivers – deliver analog clocking and reset signals
  • Configuration PROM – configures select DMD Controllers (sold as a programmed IC or offered as downloadable firmware)

Customers who manufacture, sell and develop products using DLP® technology and wish to use DLP registered and unregistered trademarks, logos, icons, or images in promotional, advertising, instructional, or reference materials, or on their websites, products labels, or packaging must follow these guidelines.
