The DLP3030-Q1 Automotive DMD is primarily targeted for automotive head-up display (HUD) applications with very large field of view or augmented reality capability requiring long focal distances. This chipset can be coupled with LEDs or lasers to create deep saturated colors with over 125% NTSC color gamut with support for 24-bit RGB video input. In addition, the chipset enables high brightness (15,000-cd/m2 typical) HUD systems with wide dynamic range, and fast switching speeds that do not vary with temperature. As used in the TI reference design, very high dynamic range over 5000:1 can be achieved to meet the operating range of an automotive HUD system for bright daylight and dark night time driving conditions.
