The Digital Micromirror Device/sup TM/ (DMD/sup TM/) has made great strides in terms of both performance and reliability. Each device consists of more than 500,000 individually addressable micromirrors. Digital Light Processing/sup TM/ technology, based on the DMD, has been used in such diverse products as projection displays with film-like projected images and photographic-quality printers. Reliability testing of the DMD has demonstrated greater than 100,000 operating hours and more than 1… Expand
