DLP® LightCrafter™ is a compact evaluation module for integrating projected light into industrial, medical, and scientific applications. This DLP-based platform enables faster development cycles for end equipments requiring small form factor, lower cost and intelligent, high-speed pattern display. DLP LightCrafter features the 0.3 WVGA chipset, provides a variety of embedded functionality such as: structured light pattern projection, intelligent lighting, wavelength selection and portable display.
Developers can easily create, store, and display high-speed pattern sequences through DLP LightCrafter's USB-based application programming interface (API) and easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI). The module also features the powerful TMS320DM365 digital media processor based on DaVinci technology from Texas Instruments. With an ARM9 DSP core, DLP LightCrafter's DM365 runs a Linux operating system to give users the ability to develop a complete embedded system around the 0.3 WVGA chipset. A configurable input/output trigger allows for convenient synchronization with cameras, sensors, or other peripheral devices.
The DLP LightCrafter includes an RGB LED light engine developed and manufactured by Young Optics International. Designed specifically for the DLP3000 DMD, this light engine produces bright, wide aspect ratio patterns well-suited for use in a variety of ambient light environments. For applications where even higher brightness is required, active cooling and thermal management systems can be added to enable light out in excess of 50 lumens.
Pico Projector 2.0
Note: The DLP® Pico™ Development Kit V2 has been discontinued.
The DLP® Pico™ Projector Development Kit Version 2.0: A way to incorporate embedded video, portable projection and structured light into your products.
The development kit uses the DLP 0.17 HVGA Chipset available from TI. This Chipset is a miniaturized version of the popular DLP technology found in today’s best projectors on the market. Using microscopic mirrors, TI’s DLP1700 is a digitally controlled spatial light modulator (SLM) able to create binary light patterns with speed, precision, and efficiency for a multitude of light processing applications.
Utilizing an efficient design with ultra-low power consumption, coupled with the robust DLP1700, you can expedite development and add projection or spatial light modulation into a vast array of products.
The Development Kit for the DLP Pico Projector includes:
Reliability is the key to success.
With nearly 20 million DLP subsystems shipped over the last 10 years, DLP products offer incredible reliability and proven performance. With unmatched switching speed measured in mere microseconds, DLP technology is more than 1,000 times faster than any other imaging technology. This makes it suitable for a wide range of applications from imaging to structured lighting and more. The robust DLP chipset is the cornerstone for successful new innovations and is paving the way to the next generation of projection implementation.
Applications start with imagination.
The DLP Pico Projector Development Kit enables solutions for portable displays, embedded video and high speed, synchronized structured light patterns. Perhaps the best application for the DLP 0.17 HVGA Chipset is yet unrealized. That’s the real value of this innovative development kit. It gives you the power to step outside of the expected to deliver something entirely new.
