The DLP® LightCrafter™ 6500 is a high performance, yet flexible evaluation module for incorporating DLP technology into a wide variety light steering applications. This EVM is an easy path for those developing solutions requiring high resolution, optical throughput and brightness at a competitive price point.

At the heart of DLP LightCrafter 6500 is a DLP chipset comprising of:

The DLP6500FYE offers true HD resolution, 1920 x 1080, or over 2 million programmable micromirrors.

The DLPC900 enables impressive pattern rates up to 9,523Hz.  These high rates enable real time 3D machine vision measurements, faster 3D printing builds, and more accurate digital light exposures with competitive cycle times in industrial markets. DLPC900 also offers designers maximum flexibility to format and sequence light patterns, which can easily be controlled via the graphical user interface.

The DLP LightCrafter 6500 allows for a configurable input/output trigger for convenient synchronization with cameras, sensors, or other peripheral devices.  The added flexibility enables diverse architectures for industrial, medical, security, telecom, and instrumentation applications.

Power supply sold separately: Digi-Key part number DPS53.
