Micromirror chip is smallest 1080p device for projection displays

January 26, 2017 // By Graham Prophet
Enabling product designers to integrate 1080p (full HD) projection displays in the smallest form factors, Texas Instruments’ 0.33-inch full DLP (“digital light processing”) Pico chipset is claimed as the smallest such display solution, offering unmatched brightness capabilities

The DLP3310 DMD micromirror device and the matching DLPC3437 controller are aimed at
mobile smart TVs, pico projectors, and smart home displays.


The fast switching speed of the DMD enables each mirror to display two distinct and unique pixels on screen during every frame. This DLP solution delivers 1080p resolution to the screen along with the highest brightness capability for its size class, which TI says is a new combination for developers of compact display products. DLP technology can delivers high colour fidelity, and offers efficiency to meet the growing demand of battery powered devices adding display capability


TI collaborates with pico optical engine manufacturers in the industry. This offers developers a path to production-ready optical engines, which helps reduce design time and gets customers’ innovative products to market faster. Manufacturers planning to offer an optical module utilizing DLP3310 include Shenzhen Anhua Optoelectronics Technology Co. Ltd, Coretronic Corporation, DigitalOptics Co. Ltd, Ongine Technology, Young Optics, Inc. and others.


The 0.33-inch Full-HD chipset and the associated components will be available in the second half of 2017.
