Texas Instruments announces brand new nHD chipset


Does it seem to you that the world of pico projectors have remained largely stagnant in terms of technological advancement? We think so in some ways, but it is nice to know that companies have not ditched this niche market just yet – with Texas Instruments coming up with their latest nHD chipset as an addition to the DLP Pico suite. Just what can nHD deliver? For starters, it will enable the thinnest, smallest DLP Pico engines to date, where nHD production availability is tipped to commence from the second quarter of this year onwards, further expanding DLP’s commitment to achieving world-class performance while enabling projector technology to be embedded into smaller devices in a wider range of product categories.

As you can see in the image above, the nHD chip is really small, that when placed with countless grains of rice, it is of a slightly larger size. With such a physical dimension, we are excited to see just what other devices will be able to incorporate projector technology which will enhance our everyday lives – guess we will just have to leave that up to the imagination of those engineers who are able to realize such dreams. Apparently, Texas Instruments claim that this new nHD chipset will set new industry-leading benchmarks in pico projection by enabling products with the highest efficiency and brightness from the industry’s thinnest, smallest physical footprint. It can deliver stunning picture quality in a small, dynamite package – what is there not to like? Among the features of the new DLP Pico solution include :-

  • nHD (640 x 360) resolution
  • Enables leading contrast ratio of better than 1,000:1 for the blackest blacks and most accurate whites
  • Enables true RGB LED wide color gamut for rich saturated colors
  • Improved power efficiency and electronic footprint
  • Incorporates a new low power Pico DPP2601/2607 ASIC/Processor
  • Enables a greater than 20 percent thinner optical module than WVGA chipset with full offset
  • Enables a greater than 50 percent smaller optical module volume than WVGA chipset with full offset
