Real-time Color Management Reference Design Using MSP430 for TI DLP® Pico™ Projector

TIDA-00722

Design files

Overview

This reference design enables real-time color management for TI DLP® Pico projection display systems.  The reference design enables automatic color correction in the field for products incorporating TI DLP Pico technology displays using LEDs. Automatic color correction allows calibration of the LED current as their brightness characteristics change in time and temperature.  The automatic white point correction includes color temperature, and color appearance for all colors. The implementation for a DLP Pico display includes an MSP430 MCU and a RGB color sensor inside the optical engine. 

Key benefits:

  • Real-time automatic white point correction with use of a color sensor
  • Monitoring color point LED illuminators
  • Monitoring LED efficiency
  • Using a digital color sensor to eliminate analog interference
  • Adjust color register at run time

Features
  • This reference design is verified and includes a schematic, PCB layout, BOM, test report, MSP430 source code and an application note.
  • This reference design enables  color calibration for DLP Pico displays in the field that result in color accurate displays despite of temperature variances and LED current characteristic changes.
