Big Picture Experience from Mobile Devices is One Step Closer to Reality with DLP Chip

"Texas Instruments has announced the availability of a DLP Pico chipset, which includes an imaging chip and a processor to enable a new class of handheld and mobile projection products.

These ground breaking chips, which will be available in the second half of 2008, deliver functionality that will improve the visual display experience from handheld devices and transform their use from “tiny screen” viewing to “big picture” viewing allowing others to share in the video and graphics experience.

Taking multimedia content beyond the confines of mobile devices, the DLP Pico chipset can be paired with a TI OMAP application processor to deliver the ultimate mobile user experience. The best-in-class imaging, video and graphics processing capabilities enabled by OMAP processors, paired with the DLP Pico chipset projection and imaging capabilities provide the perfect combination for “big picture” viewing of content stored on mobile devices.

The DLP Pico chipset will consist of the DLP Pico chip and the DLP Pico processor (DDP1500 and DDP1505). The DPP1500 is targeted at embedded applications for handheld devices, while the DDP1505 will serve the standalone handheld companion market. The DLP Pico solution delivers an aperture ratio of more than 92 percent, tens of thousands of pixel elements, switching speeds of less than 20 microseconds and DarkChip native contrast ratio process technology. In addition, the chipset is capable of displaying the widest color gamuts possible with the flexibility to operate with the latest in LED illumination technology. DLP enables safe, affordable and reliable products that will not fade or degrade over time and use."
