device independent pixel

An abstract pixel measurement used to design a user interface for touch input and display output. The device independent pixel (DP or DIP) is converted to real pixels based on the pixel density of the screen. On a highly dense screen, one DP will convert to several physical pixels. Also called a "density independent pixel."
