Description

DLP9500UV is a digitally controlled micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) spatial light modulator (SLM). When coupled to an appropriate optical system, the DLP9500UV can be used to modulate the amplitude, direction, and/or phase of incoming light.

The DLP95000UV chipset is a new digital micromirror device (DMD) addition to the DLP® Discovery™ 4100 platform, which enables high resolution and high performance spatial light modulation beyond the visible spectrum into the UVA spectrum (363 nm to 420 nm). The DLP9500UV DMD is designed with a special window that is optimized for UV transmission.

The DLP9500UV is the 0.95 1080p DMD, with a hermetic package, that is sold with a dedicated DLPC410 controller required for high speed pattern rates of >23000 Hz (1-bit binary) and >1700 Hz (8-bit gray), one unit DLPR410 (DLP Discovery 4100 Configuration PROM), and two units DLPA200 (DMD micromirror drivers). Refer to DLPC410, DLPA200, DLPR410, and DLP9500UV Functional Block Diagram.

Reliable function and operation of the DLP9500UV 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.

DLP9500UV is a digitally controlled micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) spatial light modulator (SLM). When coupled to an appropriate optical system, the DLP9500UV can be used to modulate the amplitude, direction, and/or phase of incoming light.

Electrically, the DLP9500UV consists of a two-dimensional array of 1-bit CMOS memory cells, organized in a grid of 1920 memory cell columns by 1080 memory cell rows. The CMOS memory array is addressed on a row-by-row basis, over four 16-bit LVDS DDR buses. Addressing is handled by a serial control bus. The specific CMOS memory access protocol is handled by the DLPC410 digital controller.
