0.55 XGA chipset

Texas Instruments Inc. develops the 0.55 XGA chipset that provides fast, easy and reliable control of the Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) so engineers can more effectively harness the power of DLP technology to create binary light patterns with speed, precision and efficiency.

The chipset speeds up engineers' product prototyping and development of light processing applications. "As light processing applications become increasingly more sophisticated and complex, engineers are craving increased control and design flexibility," said Arun Chhabra, WW business development, DLP embedded business. "The 0.55 XGA chipset is designed to do just this – giving engineers fast, easy and reliable control of the DMD."

The 0.55 XGA chipset includes the following three components:

•DLP5500 – 0.55 XGA DMD

•DLPC200 – DLP5500 Controller

•DLPA200 – DMD Micromirror Driver

The chipset supports up to 5000Hz binary and 500Hz greyscale pattern rates. There are also user configurable sync (output) and trigger (input) for communicating to external sources, making the chipset well suited for structured light applications such as machine vision, 3D scanning and 3D optical measurement. It can also accept input frame rates of eight bits per RGB colour at 60 Hz XGA for video imaging. A dual 24bit data interface in addition to USB and SPI interfaces offer design flexibility for easier and faster development of light processing applications.

Designed to enable a quick, out of the box experience, when paired with the 0.55 XGA chipset, the DLP LightCommander allows engineers to get their prototype development up and running in a matter of minutes instead of hours. The development kit features a fully functional platform with a versatile modular architecture to help expedite optical, electronic and system software development requiring high speed spatial light modulation.

The DLP LightCommander is designed, manufactured and supported by LOGIC and is now available with a suggested retail price of Rs.1.15 lakh ($2,499).
