DLP500YX Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) is a spatial light modulator (SLM) that modulates the amplitude, direction, and/or phase of incoming light. This DMD coupled with the four 2xLVDS input data buses enables the display of high resolution patterns at blazing pattern update rates. The high resolution and fast pattern rates offered by the DLP500YX make it well suited to support a wide variety of industrial, medical, and advanced imaging applications. Reliable function and operation of the DLP500YX is enabled through use in conjunction with dual DLPC900 Digital Controllers. This dedicated chipset provides flexible and easy-to-program pattern streams at the high pattern rates necessary to meet the requirements of a variety of end equipment solutions.
