Texas Instruments have announced the availability of the DLP9000X micromirror array optimized for working with 400 nm to 700 nm light sources which together with their latest DLPC910 controller makes it TI’s highest speed and resolution chipset for 3D printing and lithography applications.

The micromirror array consists of 2 million individually controllable highly reflective aluminum micromirrors known as the digital micromirror device (DMD) built on top of an associated CMOS memory cell. Together with the DLPC910 controller it enables programmable, high-speed pattern rates up to 15 kHz binary patterns per second and a user selectable input clock rate up to 480 MHz for advanced light control, especially in industrial, medical, and scientific applications.

The DLPC910 processes the digital input image and converts the data into the format needed by the micromirror array for correct display. The micromirror array then steers the light to the location determined by the loaded pixel data. The controller pattern rates allow fast and accurate 3D scanning and 3D printing, as well as supporting high resolution and intelligent imaging applications. Input and output status signals offer easy connection and synchronization with a variety of cameras, sensors, and other peripherals. Check out the TI DLPC910 data sheet for more information.
