Description

The DLP230NP digital micromirror device (DMD) is a digitally controlled micro-opto-electromechanical system (MOEMS) spatial light modulator (SLM). When coupled to an appropriate optical system, the DMD displays a crisp and high quality 1080p image or video. The chipset comprises this DMD and the DLPC3436 controller. The DLPA2000, DLPA2005, and DLPA3000 PMIC/LED drivers also support this chipset. The compact physical size of the device applies to portable equipment where high image quality, small form factor, and low power are important.

Visit the Getting Started with TI DLP® PicoTM Display Technology page to learn more about DMD technology.

The DMD device includes established resources to help the user accelerate the design cycle, which include production ready optical modules, optical modules manufacturers, and design houses.
