The dlps022.pdf document describes the hard-wired border mirrors to be 10 per side. This is not clear due to the diagonal nature of the array, and the fact this same data sheet counts rows differently than columns (as in Figure 14). Can a more explicit description of the hard-wired border mirror dimensions be provided?
Looking at our data sheet, I see this is not quite clear. The micromirror array border consists of 10 rows and columns around the active array. I guess an image should make this clear.
In the below figure, the green rectangular box represents one column and the rows are counted as shown.
The active array of micromirrors (608*684) is surrounded by a set of inactive mirrors consisting of 10 mirrors on each side as shown in the figure. As mentioned in the DLP3000 datasheet, these micromirrors are not user-addressable and land in -12 deg position once power has been applied to the DMD.
Hope this helps!
Thanks for the reponse. It's interesting that there is approximately 200 um of border mirrors on the short sides and 100 um on the long sides.
