The DLP® LightCrafter™ platform from Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) allows developers to harness spatial light steering from a compact module. Users can create, store, and display high-speed pattern sequences through DLP LightCrafter’s USBbased application programming interface (API) and graphical user interface (GUI).

At the core of DLP LightCrafter is the reference design for Texas Instruments’ 0.3-inch WVGA resolution DLP chipset, traditionally found in DLP® Pico™ projectors. The chipset, which displays up to 4000 binary patterns per second, has two main components: the DLP3000, a MEMS device comprised of 415,872 microscopic mirrors, and the DLPC300, a controller that provides a user interface and high-speed operation of the micromirror array.
