TI DLP® Technology ‑ Enabling New Emerging Products  
micro mirror array in detail The DLP® Digital Light Processing of Texas Instruments represents a proven technology of MEMS spatial light modulators also beyond front projection and digital cinema applications. ViALUX is a leading DLP® Design House Partner of Texas Instruments supporting world-wide customers with leading-edge DLP® modules and optical accessories. The company has focused on the general purpose DLP® Discovery™4100 platform which is basically different from the DLP® standard projector hardware; it provides highest performance and flexibility within the DLP® chipset family.
  The DLP® Discovery™4100 technology is outstanding with respect to customized, high speed use; the corresponding DDC4100 controller is an industrially proven interface that gives comprehensive, direct full speed control over the mirror array. Global array switching rates of more than 22kHz are paving the way to new emerging applications. 3D scanners and direct imaging maskless lithography for print screen and PCB production are two examples where DLP® Discovery™ technology has been successfully implemented. Advanced high‑quality 3D printing approaches are currently adopting that platform as well.  
  ViALUX has long term experience in the Discovery™ platform since Discovery™ 1000 was released in 2001. The customers are comprehensively supported: with DLP® modules for their first proof of concept work, during the R&D phase up to the OEM supply of DLP® components for series production. Based upon its long‑term experience, ViALUX supports hundreds of customers around the world with both standard components and customized solutions.  
  V-Modules   The V‑Modules of ViALUX are designed for a rapid and efficient launch into DLP® technology. The SuperSpeed V‑Modules combine the USB 3.0 data transfer with the speed and steering capabilities of Discovery™4100 and represent the highest performance class of DLP® catalog products available. SuperSpeed V‑Modules include the ALP‑4.3 Controller Suite providing a comprehensive solution and unique flexibility in mirror control thus enabling a wide variety of new emerging applications. Both hardware and firmware have been developed by ViALUX to form an optimized and reliable bundle with the API software. V‑Modules are well suited for education, academic research, proof of concept, and also as OEM components for series production.  
  ALP Controller   The Controller Suite ALP‑4, developed by ViALUX, is a proven firmware and software package for the DLP® Discovery™ platform. The ALP‑4 Controller is integral part of the V‑Modules and is frequently used with the DLP® Discovery™ Development Kits as well.  
  Projection Modules   The Projection Modules enable users to instantly combine the DLP® micro mirror device with high‑power LED light sources in the visible and near UV range. Industrial projection units are available for system integrators. The LightCrafter™6500 platform is supported by monochrome LED light engines.  
  Developer Kits   The Texas Instruments DLP® Discovery™ 4100 Development Kits support PCB development of a custom DLP® controller board and application specific FPGA logic design for the 400MHz DDC4100 interface.  
  DMD Chipset   DLP® Chipsets packages including all accessories for DMD mounting are available for registered customers producing their own DLP® control hardware.
