The Digital Micromirror Device is the result of a technological development programme which began at Texas Instruments over 15 years ago. It is a micro-mechanical device which includes an array of mirrors fabricated above CMOS static RAM memory elements. Rapid movement of the diagonally hinged mirrors allows incident light to be modulated to form high definition images for projection display systems. Recent developments, discussed here, improve both the optical and electronic performance as well as reducing active elements.
