Paper Abstract

The digital micromirror device is the product of a technological development program that began at Texas Instruments over 15 years ago. It is a microelectromechanical system device that includes an array of mirrors fabricated above CMOS static random-access memory elements. Rapid switching of the diagonally hinged mirrors allows incident light to be modulated to form the highest quality video images for projection displays systems. Recent developments, discussed here, improve the optical and electronic performance as well as reduce the required number of active elements.
