Texas Instruments announces all-new DLP Pico chip architecture
The new Tilt & Roll Pixel architecture will allow increased efficiency and brightness, less power resolution and twice the resolution in products employing it.
At this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Texas Instruments DLP Products has announced a new smaller pixel architecture called Tilt & Roll Pixel (TRP) for its DLP Pico projection technology.
The new TRP architecture will allow increased efficiency and brightness, less power resolution and twice the resolution in products employing it.
Applications include small, hand-held projectors in smartphones, tablets, cameras/camcorders, notebooks, eyewear, and standalone devices.
“The power of digital content is that it’s available anytime, anywhere,” said Frank Moizio, business unit manager DLP Pico. “DLP Pico technology creates the largest images from the smallest devices, thus enabling users to unleash the power of their digital content, and share it in collaborative, real-world settings. Our new pixel architecture enables manufacturers to extend the reach of Pico technology to new, smaller devices and new applications, with brighter images and higher efficiency.”
Pacific Media Associates has predicted a worldwide Pico Projector market forecast of 12 million units by 2016, pointing to the category’s growing popularity.
TI DLP is working with manufacturers to integrate the new TRP architecture into products.
