The display controller is the digital interface between the DMD and the rest of the system. The display controller takes digital input from front end digital receivers and drives the DMD over a high speed interface. The display controller also generates the necessary signals (data, protocols, timings) required to display images on the DMD. Some systems require a dual controller to format the incoming data before sending it to the DMD. Reliable operation of the DMD is only insured when the DMD and the controller are used together in a system. In addition to the DLP devices in the chipset, other devices may be needed. Typically a Flash part is needed to store the software and firmware.
