Ultra Mobile, Low Power DLP® Pico™ qHD Display Reference Design


Design files


The 0.23 qHD DLP chipset is an affordable platform enabling the use of DLP technology with embedded host processor. This chipset is incorporated in to this reference design to enable a low power, on-demand free-form sub-system display for a variety of applications.

  • Display sub-system DLP230GP (qHD resolution)
  • Compact PCB Layout supporting qHD (DLP230GP) Optical Engine and including HDMI and USB connectivity
  • 19-V Input and LED current drive up to 6A
