In 1987 while employed at TI, he invented the Digital Micromirror Device A Digital Micromirror Device, or DMD is an optical semiconductor that is the core of DLP projection technology, and was invented by Dr. Larry Hornbeck and Dr. William E. "Ed" Nelson of Texas Instruments (TI) in 1987. [TM] display chip, a Micro-electrical Mechanical System, MEMS (MicroElectroMechanical Systems) Tiny mechanical devices that are built onto semiconductor chips and are measured in micrometers.

DLP (Digital Light Processing) A data projection technology from TI that produces clear, readable images on screens in lit rooms. DLP is used in all types of projection devices, from data projectors that weigh only a few pounds to large rear-projection TVs to electronic technology has enabled the development of smaller, lighter, more efficient projectors, making them more portable and flexible. Quoting TI, "DLP technology brings with it digital accuracy and outstanding reliability. But most of all, DLP technology delivers the ultimate in picture quality."
In 1992, Texas Instruments featured the DMD chip at the heart of its newly created DLP projection display technology. In 1993, Texas Instruments formed the DLP Products Division to promote this technology for commercial projection display applications. The first products enabled by DLP technology came to market in early 1996. Today, TI supplies subsystems to more than 70 DLP customers worldwide who manufacturer DLP televisions and projectors. More than 5 million DLP units have been shipped, more than 275 front projection products are on the market, and more than 75 DLP TVs are sold at more than 11,000 retail outlets.
