The DLP4501 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 DLP4501 DMD displays a very crisp and high quality image or video. DLP4501 is part of the chipset comprising of the DLP4501 DMD and DLPC6401 display controller. The compact physical size of the DLP4501 is well-suited for portable equipment where a small form factor is important.
