The DLP3021-Q1 Automotive DMD is primarily targeted for automotive exterior light control and display applications, such as ground projection with the ability to display dynamic content. Ground projections can help facilitate vehicle to pedestrian (V2P) communication, such as back up and door open warnings, in addition to orchestrating vehicle communication systems and vehicle personalization options. Due to their small form factor and low power operation, projectors with the DLP3021-Q1 chipset can support many projection applications. They can be placed in many locations in the car including inside the side mirror, door panel, tail light, front grill, and more. This chipset can be coupled with LEDs or lasers to create highly saturated colors with over 125% NTSC color gamut, and can be used with either RGB or white illumination sources. A DLP® Products FPGA configuration can be used to drive the DLP3021-Q1 Automotive DMD to reduce form factor for easy integration in a vehicle. The DLPC120-Q1 Automotive DMD controller can also be used to drive the DLP3021-Q1 Automotive DMD with support for 24-bit RGB video input to increase content flexibility.
