Portable, smallest 1080p display reference design using DLP® technology


Design files


This reference design features the DLP® Pico™ Products p23-inch TRP 1080p display chipset and is implemented in the DLP LightCrafter™ Display 230NP evaluation model (EVM). The design incorporates the DLP230NP 1080p digital micromirror device (DMD), DLPC3436 display controller, and the DLPA2005 PMIC, and LED driver. The design enables the development of a p23 1080p DLP product with a small form factor interfacing to a low-cost processor, similar to the BeagleBone Black and Raspberry Pi. The design can be used in a variety of applications including mobile projectors, appliances, mobile smart TV, and many more. This reference design includes electronics and optics along with a connector to easily interface with the Raspberry Pi 4B.

  • Most affordable evaluation of 1080p DLP display technology                                                                                                                             
  • Plug and play DLP 1080p optical engine that supports up to 100 lumens                                                                                                                                    
  • I²C and 18-bit parallel RGB video interfaces to support low-cost embedded processors                                                                                                                          
  • Compact form factor                                                                                                                            
  • Raspberry PI 4 compatibility
