Featuring over 2 million micromirrors in a hermetic package, the high resolution 0.65 1080p digital micromirror device (DMD) is a spatial light modulator (SLM) that modulates the amplitude, direction, and/or phase of incoming light. The unique capability and value offered by the DLP6500, including operation at 405nm, makes it well suited to support a wide variety of industrial, medical, and advanced imaging applications. Reliable function and operation of the DLP6500 requires that it be used in conjunction with the DLPC900 or the DLPC910 digital controllers. This dedicated chipset provides full HD resolution at high speeds and can be easily integrated into a variety of end equipment solutions.
