Texas Instruments DLP Debuts New DLP Pico Chipset

pico-tilt-and-roll-pixelTexas Instruments recently announced its newest DLP Pico™ chipset, the 0.2″ TRP, which is the first to incorporate the Tilt & Roll Pixel (TRP) architecture, along with the adaptive IntelliBright suite of algorithms.

The new chipset is optimized for ultra-compact mobile and wearable devices. TI says the 0.2″ TRP chip will bring greater optical and power efficiency, and higher resolution to next-generation smartphones, tablets, digital cameras and wearable devices, such as near-eye displays.

With the ability to produce up to 100 percent higher brightness on a frame-by-frame basis while consuming up to 50 percent less power, the new 0.2″ TRP chipset also features twice the resolution of its predecessor. DLP Pico 0.2″ TRP is based on the same MEMS technology used in DLP Cinema.

Analyst firm PMA Research has been following the pico projector market since it’s inception and has forecast the mobile embedded pico projector segment to more than double by 2017. This growth will undoiubetedly be due to advances made by TI in DLP Pico technology.
