Part Number: DLP4710
I designed my own board with DLP4710 & DLPC3439 which is almost the same with the DLP4710 EVM board.
The only thing that I changed is HDMI IC.
The HDMI chip that I mounted on my board is TFP401.
I can turn on the DMD and adjust the intensity of LED.
There is no problem on I2C communication between USB and DLPC3439.
And I set the DLPC3439 to display a built in image.
But the LED and DMD is blinking every one second.
I have a question.
If the impedance between DMD and DLPC3439 is not matched , can it make the system unstable?
Please, answer me about this question.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

In reply to Navneet Singh:
First of all, I appreciate for your answer.
There was an error on my code for MSP430.
After fix the error, it doesn't blinking any more.
In order to verify the code, i downloaded it to my EVM and test it.
As like the below first picture, the EVM displayed a good default image.
And I also download it to my own PCB and test it.
But it displayed a different image from the EVM's.
The image is the second one.
As you can see the picture, it shows just vertical lines.
I checked all of signals between DMD and DLPC3439 but It looks good.
In this case, what do I first have to check?
Do I still need to suspect the impedance matching between DMD and DLPC3439 ?
In reply to Yun-Seok Cho:
I'm still struggling with the same problem.
The pin map looks fine.
If then, what kind of condition does it show only vertical lines under?
I think that the impedance between DMD and DLPC3439 perfectly matched.
If there is no problem on the pin map of connector, i have to move my focus on the other.
Could you tell me what do I have to concentrate on?
if you let me know your email address, I can send schematic file and MSP430 code.
The below table is my pin map between DLPC3439 and DMD.
Could you please check if I am using a correct version of ASIC or not?
The ASIC is working well with EVM.
If I'm using a wrong ASIC, Could you please supply correct one?
As Navneet mentioned, this issue might be caused by incorrect pin mapping.
You have provided two pin mapping tables, can you clarify which one is for the master ASIC and which one for slave ASIC?
The table on the right must be the mapping for the master ASIC while the one on the left for the slave ASIC.
Can you confirm that this is the case with your system?
Please refer to this table from page 7 of the reference design schematic:
In reply to Azad:
In my case, the left table is for the master DLPC3439 and the right one is for the slave DLPC3439.
After Navneet mentioned about firmware, I got to know that the pin map has been switched each other.
Then, do I have to make new board?
Or, can we fix this problem with just replacing a firmware of DLPC3439?
