Texas Instruments has introduced the most affordable way for developers to implement high-performing DLP display technology with virtually any low-cost processor. The company has released the new 0.2-inch DLP2000 chipset and $99 DLP LightCrafter Display 2000 evaluation module (EVM).
This makes it easy to leverage DLP technology and design on-demand, free-form display applications like mobile smart TVs; pico projectors; digital signage; projection displays for smart homes; smartphones and tablets; control panels and Internet of Things (IoT) display solutions.
The developers will be able to design easily with DLP technology by utilizing the DLP LightCrafter Display 2000 EVM. It has a dual connector which is set up to support any flexible GPIO-driven video interface capable of up to 24-bit red/green/blue (RGB)-capable processor, including the BeagoleBone Black development board based on TI Sitara AM335xprocessors.

Moreover, it also includes software drivers and BeagleBone Black code examples for easy programming. This, in turn, makes the technology more accessible for developers to incorporate high-performing DLP Pico displays into new applications.
• This EVM is a building block to pair with low-cost processors for display applications.
• Its 0.2-inch diagonal display is based on the smallest DLP products digital micromirror device (DMD), designed for compact, space-constrained display applications.
• The new EVM has a standard interface and plug-and-play functionality for a quick assessment.
• Inclusive software drivers and BeagleBone Black code examples ease the programming process.
Availability & Pricing
The DLP2000 is available now for US$19.99 and the DLP LightCrafter Display 2000 EVM is available for US$99.00 through the TI store and authorized distributors.
