DLP2010: Control of DMD mirrors
I have a quick question regarding the DLP. Can any of the DLP product in visible light range be operated with multiple waveforms, e.g. left part running at frequency f1 with pattern 1 and right part at frequency f2 with pattern 2? We hope to get DMD that can generate as much as possible (>5) binary patterns, each running at different frequency/frame rate for patterned illumination application. I saw in the forum that some of the product seem to provide individual control over pixels (DLP2010?) but I'm not sure about it. It looks to me that at least for some DLP (DLP9500) there are four LVDS buses for input and output of timing waveforms.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

Thanks for the answer. Do you mean I can send a simple geometric series of pattern rate to different section of the DMD without much of the advanced control?
We want to get high-resolution DMD for visible light that can generate many (>5) binary patterns, each running at different frequency (in the range of 0.1s to 10s kHz ) for patterned illumination application. The DMD will become a component in our microscope system for the illumination control. And thus the pitch size of the pattern on the sample should be partly controlled by the objective lens. I was looking at ALC products such as DLP9000x or DLP4710, which seem to have small micromirror pitch. But looks like the chipset family of DLP 4710 and DLP 3010 doesn't have a parameter of "pattern rate, binary (max)" in the datasheet.
Let me know your suggestions.
