The new 0.3" HD TRP chipset leverages TI's proprietary TRP DLP architecture and adaptive IntelliBright™ suite of algorithms to deliver higher brightness and lower power consumption than previous DLP Pico chipset architectures. Additionally, the chipset's fast switching speeds of up to thousands of times per second enables the smallest true-color RGB engines with 120-Hz video performance. 

To accelerate end-product development, TI maintains the most extensive pico ecosystem in the industry and is actively working with leading developers and manufacturers to bring products to market in 2014 that incorporate the 0.3" HD TRP chipset. For more details, please contact a member of DLP's ecosystem of leading optical engine manufacturers, including Asia Optical, Sekonix, Shenzhen Anhua Optoelectronics Technology Co. LTD, UneedElectro Inc. and Young Optics.

"TI has been a strong and innovative supplier to us," said Edward Tang, CEO of Avegant. "We are already utilizing the innovative 0.3" HD TRP chipset in our virtual retinal display product, the Avegant Glyph, to beam images directly onto the human eye. We selected this chipset based on its HD image quality, flexibility and power savings."

"This HD chipset represents a major milestone for DLP; we are achieving two times the number of pixels in a 0.3-inch MEMS device with 30 percent greater optical efficiency and up to 50 percent power savings on a frame-by-frame basis than our previous architectures," said Frank Moizio, business unit manager of DLP Pico. "This allows developers to create a wider variety of applications and products in smaller form factors than ever before."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
