DLPC3438 Write to Output delay
Part Number: DLP3010
we see that there is one frame latency for the controller IC DLPC3433, that is 16.6 ms for 60Hz frame rate.
what about the DLP3010 ? what's the latency for the time:
between DLPC3433 starts sending the first pixel data of one frame
and DLP3010 completes displaying the last pixel ?
Allow me to look into this a bit. However, I believe there is no fixed latency and the DMD essentially displays the information as soon as it's received.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

In reply to Kyle Rakos:
After looking into this I have the following information. As soon as the controller (with its one frame latency) begins sending video data to the DMD it will be displayed within a few hundred microseconds. However, since the DMD displays data time sequentially (i.e. different biplanes are shown during the duration of the frame being displayed), the DMD will continue receiving and displaying data from the frame throughout the frame duration.
Therefore, while the data begins being displayed with nearly no delay, taking into account the time sequential display, the latency could be considered about half a frame (for our standard display sequences).
thanks for your explanation, I want to ask about different conditions.
if the frame rate is 60hz and the colour rate is 60hz, the bitplanes are shown within 5.55ms for each colour. it takes 16.6 ms to display 3 colours.
if the frame rate is 60hz and the colour rate is 120hz, the biplanes are shown within 2.77ms for each colour. it takes 8.3 ms to display 3 colours.
So it is thought this latency might be decreased by boosting the colour rate.
is that right ?
In reply to kai:
The duty cycle of each color is generally not uniform (usually green is ~45%, red ~40%, and blue ~15%). Additionally, you will not generally have multiple color cycles per frame. Therefore, your first description of the color rate matching the frame rate generally doesn't occur. Your second description is more accurate. However, the color rate (in other words number of color cycles per frame) is optimized by our sequences to be as high as possible.
Based on the second description, the color rate is 120Hz with 2 color cycles per frame. One color cycle is 8.33 ms (green 3.75ms, red 3.33 ms, blue 1.25 ms). All the frame data ( bit planes planes) have been shown on the DMD within this 8.33 ms.
Is it correct to say that the latency is 8.33 ms?
if the color rate is 240Hz, one color cycle could be 4.17 ms. so that this latency decreases. right ?
