Product Spotlight: DLi4130 High-Speed Development Kits

Our DLi4130 High-Speed Development Kits unlock the full capabilities of the DLP® Discovery™ 4100 Chipsets by offering users a suite of high-performance functions through an API that maximizes the high speed abilities of the DLP® hardware. DLi4130 Development Kits include the DLP® Discovery™ 4100 Development Kit, ALP 4.1 High-Speed Controller Suite, Light Animator™ GUI Software and DLi Power & Cable Kit. The Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) can be specified for operation with Visible or UV wavelengths and is available in 0.7″ XGA or 0.95″ 1080p. The DLi4130 is one of the fastest and most capable DLP® spatial light modulators (SLM) available with pattern rates up to 22,727Hz binary and 290Hz 8-bit grayscale.

To increase performance, the DLi4130 control board is upgraded with 4GB DDR2 SODIMM, ALP-4.1 High-Speed Firmware, and FPGA battery for storing up to 40,000 XGA patterns. Sequences of patterns are generated and uploaded in the PC while the ALP-4.1 High-Speed API provides users a variety of customizable controls such as bit depth, user-configurable triggers, frame rate, pattern display time, pattern loop, and LED parameters.

A Directory of API Commands & Descriptions is provided to assist users with programming the DLi4130. The DLi4130 offers easily integrated tools for programming operations from a PC running on Windows 10, 7, XP, or Vista 32/64-bit.

The Light Animator™ software gives users a way to create, manage and manipulate their library of image sequences. Images and image sequences can be imported, created and edited with simple drag and drop sequences. These software packages help users skip straight to the innovation phase of their project.

The DLi4130 supports a wide variety of emerging applications including Maskless Lithography, Spectroscopy, Medical Imaging, Compressive Sensing, Defense & Security, 3D Volumetric Display, Robotic Guidance, 3D Scanning, 3D Machine Vision, 3D Metrology, Rapid Prototyping and Hyperspectral Imaging. Click here to read the full spec sheet.
