For applications requiring an array of digital micro mirrors (DMD's), MEMS technology from Texas Instruments offers reliable optical semiconductors for a broad range of light steering needs. DLP® chip technology offers fast pixel switching speeds, LED optical engine solutions for smaller designs, independent pixel control and works with UVA to Near IR light.
Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) (also written as micro-electro-mechanical, MicroElectroMechanical or microelectronic and microelectromechanical systems) is the technology of very small devices; it merges at the nano-scale into nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) and nanotechnology. MEMS are also referred to as micromachines (in Japan), or micro systems technology – MST (in Europe).
MEMS technology and micromachining has enabled the production of complex electrical, mechanical, thermal, optical, mechanical, fluidic, magnetic structures and devices alike in a smaller scale ranging from organs to sub cellular organelles.
