Pico Projector 2.0

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. Buy Now!

The Development Kit for the DLP Pico
Projector includes:

  • DLP Pico projection device
  • Power supply cable (operates from 110V – 220V)
  • Video cable with I2C capability
  • HDMI to DVI adapter

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.

Take the next step to projection innovation. To learn more about how you can get started with the DLP Pico Projector Development Kit, visit www.ti.com/mems or https://community.ti.com.
