TI Announces Smallest DLP® Pico™ 1080p display chipset

TI_DLP_0_47_Texas Instruments has announced that the 0.47″ TRP Full-HD 1080p chipset for video and data display applications is available to its third-party developer network. Based on the DLP Cinema® technology used in digital cinema projectors, the 0.47″ TRP Full-HD 1080p chipset is the smallest TI chipset capable of generating brighter, more efficient full high-definition projection displays from small form-factor electronics.

Example applications include mobile projectors (battery and AC-powered), screenless TVs, control panels, interactive displays and wearables, such as near-eye displays.

Key features of the 0.47″ TRP Full-HD 1080p display chipset include:

  • Full-HD resolution delivers sharp, clear images and compact size enables end-user products in many form factors.
  • Low power consumption allows for use in battery-powered applications, such as mobile projectors and wearables.
  • Proprietary TI DLP® TRP architecture and adaptive DLP IntelliBright™ suite of algorithms can deliver up to 100 percent higher brightness or up to 50 percent lower power consumption than previous DLP Pico™ chipset architectures. DLP TRP architecture delivers twice the resolution of its same-size predecessor.

The 0.47″ TRP Full-HD 1080p display chipset will be available in early 2015 for purchase from TI in evaluation quantities and from TI-authorized distributors in high-volume quantities. It includes the DLP4710 digital micromirror device, which will be offered in a 100-pin FQL package. Other components in the chipset are the DLPC3439, which will be available in a 201-pin VFBGA package, and the DLPA3005 that will be offered in a 100-pin HTQFP package.

PMA Research has been following the Pico projector market since its inception. Recent end-user surveys show that brighter, higher definition pico projectors are in demand.
