Digital Light Innovations Graphic: Product Spotlight - SuperSpeed V-Modules

SuperSpeed V-Modules

DLi is proud to now carry the new SuperSpeed DLP® V-Modules from our partners and good friends at ViALUX.

SuperSpeed V-Modules provide users full access to the best-selling DLP Discovery™ 4100 Chipsets without the need for time-consuming developments for software, firmware and high-speed FPGA logic code. Combining USB 3.0 data transfer with the speed and steering capabilities of Discovery4100, these V-Modules enable a rapid launch into DLP application development and represent the highest performance class of DLP catalog products available.

V‑Modules also offer unique flexibility in mirror control, enabling a wide variety of new emerging applications.

The high-performance Discovery™ 4100 chipset on these V-Modules is driven by the ALP 4.3 SuperSpeed Controller Suite. For conveniently programming the DMD, a well-organized and easy-to-use Application Programming Interface (API) is provided. The ALP 4.3 SuperSpeed API Library is portable and can be used in a wide array of application building programs. SuperSpeed controller boards come with completely configured high-speed FPGA logic and USB 3.0 controller firmware so users save time and costs on dedicated hardware and firmware development.

The USB 3.0 SuperSpeed transfer is the key for streaming data to the 8GB on‑board RAM, further enhanced by lossless on‑the‑flight compression. The latest DDR3 RAM technology increases the throughput of the patterns to the DMD. Pattern rates up to 22,727 Hz are achieved by taking advantage of the DLP Discovery™ 4100 chipset. The ALP 4.3 provides a wide range of user controls such as Pattern RateBit Depth, I/O Triggers and Looping/Repetition. This feature enables users to customize pattern sequences to meet their respective application requirements. Users can also sync the DMD to sensors such as CMOS & CCD cameras.

The SuperSpeed V-Modules are available in 3 x DMD sizes0.7” XGA (1024×768), 0.95” 1080p (1920×1080), and 0.96” WUXGA (1920×1200). Each DMD can also be specified in operation with UV and Visible wavelengths.
