The DLP7000 XGA Chipset is part of the
Discovery™ 4100 platform, which enables high
resolution and high performance spatial light modulation. The DLP7000 is the digital micromirror
device (DMD) fundamental to the 0.7 XGA chipset, and currently supports the fastest pattern rates
in the DLP catalog portfolio. The DLP Discovery 4100 platform also provides the highest level of
individual micromirror control with the option for random row addressing. Combined with a hermetic
package, the unique capability and value offered by DLP7000 makes it well suited to support a wide
variety of industrial, medical, and advanced display applications.
In addition to the DLP7000 DMD, the 0.7 XGA Chipset includes these components:
- Dedicated DLPC410 controller for high speed pattern rates of >32000 Hz (1-bit
binary) and >4000 Hz (8-bit gray)
- One unit
DLPR410 (DLP Discovery 4100 Configuration PROM)
- One unit DLPA200 (DMD Micromirror Driver)
Reliable function and operation of the DLP7000 requires that it be used in conjunction
with the other components of the chipset. A dedicated chipset provides developers easier access to
the DMD as well as high speed, independent micromirror control.
DLP7000 is a digitally controlled micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) spatial light
modulator (SLM). When coupled to an appropriate optical system, the DLP7000 can be used to modulate
the amplitude, direction, and/or phase of incoming light.
Electrically, the DLP7000 consists of a two-dimensional array of 1-bit CMOS memory cells,
organized in a grid of 1024 memory cell columns by 768 memory cell rows. The CMOS memory array is
addressed on a row-by-row basis, over two 16-bit low voltage differential signaling (LVDS) double
data rate (DDR) buses. Addressing is handled via a serial control bus. The specific CMOS memory
access protocol is handled by the DLPC410 digital controller.
