Featuring over 4 million micromirrors, the high resolution DLP9000 and DLP9000X digital micromirror devices (DMDs) are spatial light modulators (SLMs) that modulate the amplitude, direction, and/or phase of incoming light. This advanced light control technology has numerous applications in the industrial, medical, and consumer markets. The streaming nature of the DLP9000X and its DLPC910 controller enable very high speed continuous data streaming for lithographic applications. Both DMDs enable large build sizes and fine resolution for 3D printing applications. The high resolution provides the direct benefit of scanning larger objects for 3D machine vision applications.
