Smallest TI DLP® Pico™ 1080p display chipset enables full high-definition projection from compact applications

Press Release  |  Dec 3, 2014

Chipset sampling now to leading optical module manufacturers; third party optical engines now in development

DALLAS, Dec. 3, 2014 – Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today announced that the 0.47” TRP Full-HD 1080p chipset for video and data display applications is sampling to its third-party developer network. Based on the proven DLP Cinema® technology used in more than eight out of ten digital theatres worldwide, 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.[1]

To accelerate developers’ ability to bring their innovative products to market, TI maintains the most extensive ecosystem of pico optical engine manufacturers in the industry, 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. For more details, please contact a member of the DLP ecosystem ofleading pico optical engine manufacturers.

Availability and package
The 0.47” TRP Full-HD 1080p display chipset will 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.
