D4100 Assembly Guide

DLP® Discovery™ D4100 Development Kits Assembly Guide

The DLP® Discovery™ 4100 Development Kits (D4100) are entry level kits that provide access to all the basic capabilities for users wanting to understand the functionality of a DLP platform. The key components of the development kits include the D4100 Controller Board and the DMD Assembly. In this how-to video, we take you through the step-by-step process of assembling the components of the D4100 series of development kits offered by DLi.


The D4100 Development Kits are based on Texas Instruments’ (TI) DLP® Discovery™ 4100 Chipsets. The D4100 Chipsets consist of the DLPC410 DMD Digital Controller, DLPA200 DMD Micromirror Driver, DLPR410 PROM, and Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) that enable users to digitally modulate, steer, and project light with speed, precision, and efficiency.

The D4100 development kit is available with the following four DMD options in the visible and ultraviolet (UV) range: DLP7000, DLP7000UV, DLP9500, and DLP9500UV. Each DMD is well-suited for solutions requiring high resolution, optical throughput and brightness. The DLP7000 .7” XGA DMD employs 1024×768 mirror arrays and is capable of binary pattern rates up to 22,727Hz/290Hz 8-bit grayscale, with reliable data transfer rates of 25.6 Gb/s. The DLP9500 .95″ 1080p (1920×1080) & the DLP9600 .96″ WUXGA (1920×1200) DMD’s enable users to reach binary pattern rates up to 10,638Hz/250Hz 8-bit.
