The DLP3000-C300REF reference design is intended to accelerate development time for systems based on the DLP® 0.3 WVGA chipset. This reference design has been implemented in the DLP LightCrafter™ development module, which provides a powerful platform for integrating intelligent, high-speed pattern display into end equipment where small form factor and lower cost are important. In addition to the 0.3 WVGA chipset, the reference design includes TI's TMS320DM365 embedded processor and MSP430 microcontroller for enhanced flexibility and functionality.
The software and firmware provides developers flexibility and advanced control of the digital micromiror device (DMD). In addition, it offers convenient interfacing and extensive feature sets to accelerate development of end equipments using spatial light modulation. DLP LightCrafter EVMs come installed with Firmware and Software Package v1.0. To promote proper functionality, do not combine software and firmware from different release packages.
The firmware and software packages include:
DLPLIGHTCRAFTERGUI – Graphical user interface enables easy configuration of and data upload to DLP LightCraftervia the USB. API commands can be sent from Windows, Linux, and Mac machines (Windows only in v1.0 package). GUI v3.8 is only compatible with DLP LightCrafter modules that have upgraded to Firmware and Software Package v1.1. GUI v3.7 should be used with un-upgraded DLP LightCrafter modules out-of-box.
DLPR300FPGA – Configuration firmware for optional FPGA. Programs an Altera Cyclone IV EP4CE6 FPGA that can be used in conjunction with the DLPC300 controller to enable even higher speed monochrome pattern display on the DLP3000 compared with using the DLPC300 alone. The optional FPGA allows users to multiplex two data input sources and provides a fully configurable I/O trigger for synchronizing cameras, sensors, and other peripheral devices. It also provides for additional LED control capabilities.
DLP3000-C300REFDM365 - Application reference SW based on TI's DVSDK platform. Includes Linux kernel, Linux filesystem, Linux product support package (PSP), application framework (APIs), codec libraries (MPEG4,H.264, MPEG2, G.711, JPEG), example programs, DSP Codegen, and CodeSourcery tool chain with IDE for cross-compiling and debugging target systems.
DLP3000-C300REFMSP - Application reference SW for system initialization & shutdown, LED driver control, and power supply sequencing.
DLP3000-C300REFEDID - Extended display identification data stored in EDID PROM configures system to accept video input through HDMI port at WVGA (864x480) or native DLP3000 (608x684) resolutions.
