These chips can be integrated into a mobile device to project images onto a surface. This technology aims to overcome the nuances of the small display screens that cellular phones currently have. Texas Instruments revealed prototypes of the technology a year ago. At that time, Texas Instruments was expecting the convergence between televisions and cellular phones to progress rapidly over the next few years. Texas Instruments feels that that time is now.
