MAR2100 | Mirror Controller IC

MAR2100 MIRROR CONTROLLER IC

The MAR2100 is a Driver and control IC for Maradin’s MAR1110.E dual-axis MEMS-based scanning mirror. MAR2100 is targeted for miniature laser-based displays and sensors.

MAR2100 drives and controls Maradin’s MAR1110.E dual-axis scanning mirror and generates the timing signals to synchronize the laser module through the Host, also called a Data Manipulator. As the MAR1110.E scanner has two uncoupled actuators – one for horizontal scan and one for vertical scan, MAR2100 controller IC supports both drivers.

KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Both Electromagnetic and Electrostatic actuator drivers

  • 2D (Vertical and horizontal) capacitance sensing

  • Programmable Gain and BW for sensing and control circuitry

  • Capacitance calibration of sensors

  • Horizontal control based on MEMS resonance

  • Programmable phase and duty cycle for PLL

  • Programmable number of scan lines

  • Programmable number of retrace lines

  • Field Rate: 60Hz

  • Support interlace/non-interlace modes

  • Option to input external control signals for Vertical and Horizontal loops

  • Timing generator to control RGB module

  • SPI interface with external Host

  • 3v supply with on-chip voltage regulators for analog circuitry

  • Eye Safety Alarm

  • DFT

  • Changeable scan angles in realtime over the scan field
