DLP471TP: Is DLP471TP replacing DLP470TP?

Part Number: DLP471TP

1) Is the DLP471TP a replacement for DLP470TP that uses one DLPC and no FPGA?

2) Is HDR supported and are there any downgrades in features from DLP470TP I should be aware of?

3) Is it in mass production already for module suppliers or is it a limited sample production at this point?

Thanks.

  • John,

    The DLP471TP is a DMD which incorporates the DLPC6540 as a controller. It is correct that the DLPC6540 has the advantage of requiring only a single controller and no FPGA to drive the DLP471TP (unlike the DLPC6421 which must be used in a pair alongside an FPGA).

    In terms of tradeoffs between the two chipsets, I shall loop in a colleague on my team who is an expert on this chipset to assist you further.

    Best Regards,
    Philippe Dollo

    Hi John,

    Adding on to Philippe.

    #1. Yes, correct.

    #2. HDR is properly supported on this chipset, there are no downgrades like features in the controller compared to DLPC6421.

    #3. It is in Mass Production, we will be soon launching the DLP471TP EVM kit (tentatively planned before the end of this year) for the user to evaluate the features.

    Thank you Sanjeev and Philippe.

    What about optical module providers? Are they already updating their evaluation modules or will that happen around the time the evaluation kit from TI website is available itself?

    Thank you.

    Hi John,

    I am checking in with members of our team to find out the manufacturer's plans for the optical engines.

    I will keep you updated.

    Yes, it will be available around the same time as the EVM launch. I would suggest looking at OE supplier for this DMD after the launch.
