Introduction In 1930, a company named “Geophysical Service Inc.“ (GSI) purchased the company. By 1951, the Laboratory and Manufacturing (L&M) division was growing faster than GSI's Geophysical division because of its defense contract. Then the company was reorganized and initially renamed General Instruments Inc. However, there already existed a firm named General Instrument, the company was renamed Texas Instruments that same year. Products of Texas Instruments Inc. Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) manufactures a wide range of products, for example, semiconductors, chips, digital signal processors (DSPs), analog semiconductors, among a wide range of other semiconductor products, including calculators, microcontrollers and multi-core processors.…show more content…
The DMD is an MEMS device that has electrical input and optical output. Each DMD has up to 2 million individually controlled micromirrors built on top of an associated CMOS memory cell. There are two stable micromirror states (e.g +12° and–12°) for the DMD pixel, which the states are determined by geometry and electrostatics of the pixel during operation. As mentioned, the DMD pixel is an opto-mechanical element in that these two positions determine the direction that light is deflected. In other words, the DMD is a spatial light modulator. During the operation, the positive (+) state is tilted toward the illumination and is referred to as the "on" state. Similarly, the negative (–) state is tilted away from the illumination and is referred to as the "off" state. Figure 1 shows two pixels, one in the on and one in the off state. These are the only operational states of the…show more content…
The underside of the micromirrors make contact with the spring tips shown in Figure 2. The diagram shows a micromirror in the unpowered state. The two electrodes shown are used in holding the micromirror in the two operational positions (+12° and
