Texas Instruments has announced a new development kit called the DLP LightCommander and a development kit for pico projectors called the DLP Pico Projector Development Kit v2. The LightCommander is a dev kit that has an optical light engine, industry standard interfaces, and application software. The modular architecture of the device helps make optical, electronic, and system software development faster.
TI says that the LightCommander will help the users to get their prototype up and running in minutes rather than hours. The device is designed and supported by Logic. The LightCommander will be available this spring for $2499.
The Pico Projector Development Kit v2 is a light modulation solution that can be integrated into structured lighting apps like 3D optical measurement, machine vision, biometrics, and surveillance. The new update to the dev kit lets users connect to a PC for out of the box operation, sync signal output, and selectable DMD pattern rates. The dev kit is available now for $349.
