DALLAS, Aug. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today, opened the door for developers to implement high-performing DLP display technology with virtually any low-cost processor. The new 0.2-inch DLP2000 chipset and $99 DLP® LightCrafter™ Display 2000 evaluation module (EVM) now make it more affordable to leverage DLP technology and design on-demand, free-form display applications such as mobile smart TVs; pico projectors; digital signage; projection displays for smart homes, smartphones and tablets; and control panels and Internet of Things (IoT) display solutions. For more information about the DLP2000, see https://www.ti.com/DLP2000-pr.
With the DLP LightCrafter Display 2000 EVM, developers worldwide can easily design with DLP technology. The EVM’s dual connector is set up to support any flexible GPIO-driven video interface capable of up to 24-bit red/green/blue (RGB)-capable processor, including the BeagleBone Black development board based on TI Sitara™ AM335x processors, and includes software drivers and BeagleBone Black code examples for easy programming. This makes the technology more accessible for developers to incorporate high-performing DLP Pico™ displays into new applications.
Key features and benefits of the DLP2000 chipset and EVM
- Industry’s most affordable pico display solution: Designed with developers in mind, this $99 EVM is a building block to pair with low-cost processors for display applications.
- Virtually limitless display possibilities: The 0.2-inch diagonal display is based on the smallest DLP Products digital micromirror device (DMD), designed for compact, space-constrained display applications.
- Developer-friendly: The new EVM features a standard interface and plug-and-play functionality for quick assessment, allowing signals from the display controller to connect with any 24-bit RGB-capable processor and providing solutions with a high-definition (HD) aspect ratio.
- Compatible with low-cost processors: Inclusive software drivers and BeagleBone Black code examples ease the programming process.
Availability and pricing
The DLP2000 is available now for US$19.99 and the DLP LightCrafter Display 2000 EVM is available for US$99.00 through the TI store and authorized distributors. For more information, see www.ti.com/dlp2000 or watch the DLP LightCrafter Display 2000 demo to see how quickly you can get started.
