According to U.S. based research group Pacific Media Associates (PMA), the market for such devices is expected to surpass millions of units in the next few years.

First introduced at Mobile World Congress last year, several global partners have already launched products built on DLP Pico(TM) technology ranging from notebook companions to handheld media players and mobile phones.

The newest DLP Pico(TM) chipset can be paired with a TI OMAP application processor to deliver the ultimate mobile user experience. The DLP Pico(TM) chipset is a combination of the DLP Pico(TM) chip and the DLP Pico(TM) processor. It is optimized for applications in mobile and handheld devices.
