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."

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
