The DLPC3420 digital controller, part of the DLP160AP (0.16 QnHD) chipset, enables operation of the DLP160AP digital micromirror device (DMD). The DLPC3420 controller provides a convenient, multi-functional interface between user electronics and the DMD, enabling small form factor and low power display applications.

Visit the getting started with TI DLP Pico™ display technology page, and view the programmer’s guide to learn how to get started.

The chipset includes established resources to help the user accelerate the design cycle, which includeproduction ready optical modules, optical module manufacturers, and design houses.
