DLi offers a full line of DLP® Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) Chipsets for Texas Instruments’ Discovery™ Development Kit evaluation modules (EVMs) and Light Engines. A DMD is used to modulate the amplitude, direction and/or phase of incoming light (illumination).
A DMD is a digital imaging chip that reflects light to project and display patterns and images. It consists of a mirror array of up to 2 million, individually controlled, highly reflective aluminum micromirrors. This enables users to program high-speed, efficient programs of light. In other words, it lets you steer and control light!
The DLP® Chipsets include a DMD as well as its support chips: Micromirror Driver, DMD Digital Controller, & Configuration PROM. The support chips control and coordinate the data loading micro mirror switching to guarantee reliable operation. All DMDs are optically efficient from 350 nm – 2500 nm. DLP® chipsets are also available in full EVMs and development kits such as the Discovery D4100 and DLi41xx Kits, as well as the CEL5500 Light Engine.
