The DLP® LightCrafter™ 9000 is a high performance and highly flexible development kit for incorporating DLP technology into a wide variety light steering applications. This EVM is an easy path for solutions maximizing resolution, optical throughput and brightness.

At the heart of DLP LightCrafter 9000 is a DLP chipset comprising of:

  • DLP9000 - Digital Micro-mirror Device (DMD)
  • DLPC900 - DMD digital controller (requires 2 controllers)

The DLP9000 offers true HD resolution, 2560x1600, or over 4 million programmable micromirrors.  

The DLPC900 enables impressive pattern rates up to 9,523Hz.  For even higher rates, design with the DLP9000X DMD and DLPC910 Digital Controller for up to 15kHz pattern rates or greater than 60 Gbps maximum throughput.  These high rates enable real time 3D machine vision measurements, faster 3D printing for additive manufacturing, 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 9000 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, metrology, security, telecom, and instrumentation applications.

The DLP LightCrafter 9000 only operates with the DLP9000 DMD. To prototype with the high speed DLP9000X DMD, refer to the DLP subsystem reference design.

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