HD pico projector chip from TI with improved resolution and brightness performance
Texas Instruments is sampling 0.47" TRP Full-HD 1080p chipset for video and data display applications. The 0.47" TRP Full-HD 1080p chipset is the smallest TI chipset supporting 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.
TI says this chip used proprietary TI DLP TRP architecture and adaptive DLP IntelliBright suite of algorithms which 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.
TI offers optical ecosystem information to product developers eliminating the need for developers to have their own optics expertise. Members of this third-party ecosystem are now developing optical engines that incorporate the 0.47" TRP Full-HD 1080p chipset.
The 0.47" TRP Full-HD 1080p display chipset is slated to be available in early 2015 for purchase from the TI Store 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.
