0.67-inch 4K UHD DLP chip supersizes projection displays

January 06, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Texas Instruments has released a 0.67-inch 4K UHD chip for home theater, business and education projection displays based on its proven DLP Cinema technology.

The DLP 4K UHD chipset combines the fast switching speed of the digital micromirror device (DMD) with advanced image processing. The integrated MEMS solution delivers more than 8 million pixels to the screen with just 4 million mirrors. Each mirror is capable of switching over 9,000 times per second, creating two distinct and unique pixels on the screen during every frame to deliver full 4K UHD resolution.

The inherent one-chip DLP system alignment enables the color integrity of the content to be maintained without blurriness between colors. With a small, 0.67-inch DMD that is similar in size to the DLP 0.65-inch 1080p chip, customers can have access to more affordable 4K UHD solutions in settings ranging from the home theater to the boardroom to the classroom.
