DLP® Chipsets Bring Versatility to Applications Requiring 4K UHD Displays (.PDF Download)

Sept. 14, 2021

Just like Goldilocks, the market for display technology knows when something is just right. And when it comes to getting it right, it’s hard to argue against 4K ultra-high-definition (UHD) displays that utilize Texas Instruments’ DLP 4K UHD chipset.

Digital light processing (DLP) technology is a fast-switching microelectromechanical-systems (MEMS) platform that modulates light using a digital micromirror device (DMD) Each of 4.15 million micromirrors has a reflective aluminum surface that can be just a few microns wide. A DMD steers light by electrostatically deflecting or switching each mirror up to thousands of times per second. To make this possible, a 1 or 0 is loaded into a memory cell beneath each mirror, which activates electrodes that control whether the mirror is switch to an on or off state.
