DLP7000UV is a digitally controlled MEMS
(micro-electromechanical system) spatial light modulator (SLM). When coupled to an appropriate
optical system, the DLP7000UV can be used to modulate the amplitude, direction, and/or phase of
The DLP7000UV digital micromirror device (DMD) is an addition to the
Discovery™ 4100 platform, which enables very fast
pattern rates combined with high performance spatial light modulation operating beyond the visible
spectrum into the UVA spectrum (363 nm to 420 nm). The DLP7000UV DMD is designed with a special
window that is optimized for UV transmission. 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 DLP7000UV makes it well suited
to support a wide variety of industrial, medical, and advanced display applications.
The DLP7000UV DMD with a hermetic package is sold with a dedicated DLPC410 controller
for high speed pattern rates of >32000 Hz (1-bit binary) and >1900 Hz (8-bit gray), one
DLPR410 (DLP Discovery 4100 Configuration PROM), and one DLPA200 (DMD micromirror driver).
Reliable function and operation of the DLP7000UV 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.
Electrically, the DLP7000UV 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.
