TI DLP4500 Digital Micromirror Device
Texas Instruments DLP4500 Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) is a digitally controlled MOEMS (micro-opto-electromechanical system) spatial light modulator (SLM). When TI DLP4500 is coupled to an appropriate optical system, it can be used to modulate the amplitude and direction of incoming light. DLP4500 creates light patterns with speed, precision, and efficiency. Architecturally, this TI DMD is a latchable, electrical-in/optical-out semiconductor device. This architecture makes DLP4500 well suited for use in applications such as 3D scanning or metrology with structured light, augmented reality, microscopy, medical instruments, and spectroscopy. The compact physical size of the DLP4500 is well-suited for portable equipment where small form factor and lower cost are important.
DLPC350 Digital Controller is part of the DLP 0.45 WXGA chip set and supports reliable operation of the DLP4500 Digital Micromirror Device. TI DLPC350 controller provides a convenient, multi-functional interface between user electronics and the DMD, enabling high-speed pattern rates and providing LED control and data formatting for multiple input resolutions. DLPC350 also outputs a trigger signal for synchronizing displayed patterns with a camera, sensor, or other peripherals. This TI digital controller enables integration of the DLP 0.45 WXGA chip set into small-form-factor and low-cost light steering applications.
