The DLPC300 controller provides a convenient, multi-functional interface between user electronics and the DMD, enabling high-speed pattern rates (up to 4-kHz binary), providing LED control, and data formatting for multiple input resolutions. The DLPC300 digital controller, part of the DLP3000 chipset, is required for reliable operation of the DLP3000 DMD. The DLPC300 also outputs a trigger signal for synchronizing displayed patterns with a camera, sensor, or other peripherals.
