ZHCSA85F August 2012 – February 2019 DLPC410
A Mirror Clocking Pulse is an analog voltage waveform provided to the DMD from the DLPA200 DMD Micromirror Driver. This waveform times the electrostatic forces which cause each micromirror to transition to its next state. This next state is determined by the data in the SRAM cell beneath each pixel. If the data has changed, the micromirror will rotate its position 24 degrees to the opposite state. If the data is unchanged, the mirror will remain in the same state. The DLPC410 instructions the DLPA200 to apply Mirror Clocking Pulses to the DLPA200 based on instructions from the user.
A Mirror Clocking Pulse (MCP) is often referred to as a "Reset" operation.
