open-in-new Find other Near-infrared (NIR) chipsets


The DLP4500NIR digital micromirror device (DMD) acts as a spatial light modulator (SLM) to steer near-infrared (NIR) light and create patterns with speed, precision, and efficiency. Featuring high resolution in a compact form factor, the DLP4500NIR DMD is often combined with a single element detector to replace expensive InGaAs array-based detector designs, leading to high performance, cost-effective portable solutions.
